 Andrew Zimmern, a James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, food writer and teacher. He is considered one of the most versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world. After starring in nearly forty episodes all over the world, Zimmern has created a name for himself as an international journalist/public figure via bizarre foods.

         “As the co-creator, contributing producer and host of the Travel Channel’s hit series, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World, he travels the world, exploring the food in its own terroir, wherever it’s found. From restaurants to jungle markets, it’s all about discovering the authentic experience.”

            The concept of Bizarre Foods involves Zimmern traveling the world to discover and reveal the strangest of delicacies. He travels to different countries and eats everything. Zimmern samples different foods in their own native regions, wherever that may be.

            “Zimmern is up for anything. He knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source. So whether he’s chasing down large water rodents in the Louisiana bayou, fishing for piranha on the Amazon or flushing out cave bats in Malaysia, you can be sure the guy with the iron stomach will dish up the unimaginable.”

            “The fact that I’ve had 60 or 70 types of animal penises and testicles in my mouth at one time is a huge amusement to many people,” said Zimmern of his bizarre foods. “To me, I’m just curious, I’m just hoping one day to find one that’s actually good.”

            Introducing a characteristic of dining out that will compel his viewers to think twice before they order off the menu, and exercising his knowledge of all things edible, Andrew Zimmern is establishing his hunt to find the world’s most bizarre foods.

            Zimmern began his culinary career at 14 but his dream of success in the culinary business was put on pause due to Zimmern’s drug habits. He received treatment in Minnesota and has been sober since 1982. Zimmern redeemed himself and opted to stay in Minnesota and developed into a recognized food writer and radio personality.

Andrew Zimmern is also the international spokesman for Travel Leaders and Elite Destination Homes.
