Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern is back with another round of exotic eats from around the globe! After 6 seasons of Bizarre Foods America exploring unusual edibles in his own backyard, Zimmern is dusting off his passport once again to crisscross the globe in search of the world's most bizarre foods. Zimmern believes that the best way to explore other cultures is by sharing food, even though what's common fare in one country may be a challenge for the western palate. In Bizarre Foods, this adventurous eater infiltrates markets and restaurants taking viewers behind the scenes to savor the local cuisine - even if that means gulping down ant eggs in Mexico City or slurping on snails in Portugal. This curious traveler is game for anything and knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source.
Andrew gets a taste of the culinary impact of Napoleon Bonaparte's march through Poland. He tries decadent tripe soup, rump steak seasoned with gunpowder and roe deer brains cooked over an open fire.
Andrew explores the route taken by Pueblo leader Po'pay during the 1680 revolt against the Spanish. Along the way, he experiences native traditions and digs into porcupine heart, acorn mush cake and elk jerky.
Andrew explores ancient superfoods, heirloom seeds and indigenous culinary traditions of Aztec Mexico. He eats wild boar in native cactus, stinkbug salsa and seven-chili rabbit stew before trying sweaty tacos inspired by Aztec ingredients.
In the season premiere, Zimmern rides the last 200 miles of the Pony Express Trail to its terminus at Sacramento, California, exploring the thrilling mail delivery service that had a short (just 18 months) but profound impact on America. He rides the very same path and enjoys foods that the young riders would have eaten, like son-of-a-gun-stew, fire-roasted duck hearts, boiled elk tongue and pine nut soup. He also discovers fresh foods created by this land's new generation, including sturgeon skin chicharron and cowboy sushi (wagyu beef filet over vinegar-seasoned rice).
