Despite its name, "Bizarre Foods America" is not really about Zimmern eating weird food. The show is Zimmern's way of exploring a city through its food culture. That means there's room for the the upscale glossiness of Woodberry Kitchen
, where Zimmern and his crew spent hours with Spike Gjerde's crew as they prepared for dinner service. (Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun /December 18, 2007)
The "Bizarre Foods America with Andrew Zimmern" episode featuring Baltimore will air on Monday, March 25 at 9 p.m. on the Travel Channel.
Here is the episode synopsis from the Travel Channel:
"There's a long line of tradition on the menu when Andrew Zimmern visits Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay. From learning how to skin a muskrat from a local champion, to hauling in pots of fresh eels, to selling produce from a horse-drawn carriage, Zimmern puts in some hard work to get a taste of this part of Maryland. Steamed blue crabs, fresh grilled eel, Korean blood sausage, and barbecued muskrat are just a few of the tasty treats Zimmern gets to try!"
Zimmern came to Baltimore last June with the crew of "Bizarre Foods America," the domestic version of his long-running travelogue series. Zimmern Tweeted out a steady diary of his visit to Baltimore and the Eastern Shore, and openly discussed his itinerary with the local press.
