All-American Road Trip
In the all-new season of Bizarre Foods, I’m exploring America’s rich history and diverse cuisine along the country’s most famous historic routes. For me, traveling in the USA is all about the legendary trips that define our culture, from de Tocqueville to Huck Finn to Kesey’s Merry Pranksters. Our history can be defined by our voyages, from north to south, and from sea to shining sea. It’s thrilling for me see our country’s great journeys, routes and pathways laid out for our fans with all the epic, historical sweep and adventure learning baked into a classic Bizarre Foods season.
We begin the journey in Oregon, uncovering indigenous foods of the Pacific Northwest while following in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. After that, I’m headed to the Great Lakes coastline communities, the Southern barbecue belt, the Civil War antebellum trail, Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway. The new season will also feature a six-part companion web series, “Andrew in the Kitchen.” I can’t wait to share recipes with you inspired by the experiences, foods and cultures I found along the way.
Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern premieres Tuesday, January 31 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel.
