Food is the main source of living for all living organisms on the planet with each category having their own preferences. Right from the primates who prevailed in the beginning to the species of homo-sapiens the choice of foods has undergone a drastic change depending on the continuous evolution in the life style and culture. In the present age, each and every geographical location on the earth has its own food culture with each and every community following a unique way of food ritual that has been passed down from generations via their ancestors. Exploring these unique foods styles and traditions has been a treasured affair for many food lovers and travel enthusiasts. One such versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world is Andrew Zimmern, who is on a constant quest for regional cuisine, exploring food in its own terroir and traveling around the globe. I enjoy watching his food shows that are actually bizarre and also named as Bizarre Foods. I never miss his shows and I'm often seen glued to my television connected by FiOS TV whenever there is a telecast of Bizarre Foods. Till date, there have been several repetitive rely of these shows and each of these shows hold the same appetitive notion as it was first telecasted few years back.

Andrew Zimmern is a chef and foodie and a James Beard Award-winning TV personality who is also a food writer and teacher. He was born in the city of New York to a Jewish family and raised in the local community, wherein he completed his education. He indulged into the culinary world at the age of fourteen and from then on never looked back. His credentials list is a never ending one and includes having worked in top New York restaurants either as an executive chef or in a managerial position and also has given lectures and conducted training sessions. Zimmern, as a free lance journalist has contributed to the edition works of several famous magazines and several works done by him has been published in numerous national and international publications. Being adventurist, he shares his passion for ethnic foods with food cravers around the world. He is been invited and attended as a guest chef in many food event, national charity functions, food festivals and galas. He also initiated The Cooking Club of America's instructional video series. Zimmern is an active participant who associates himself with the culinary matters of the globe constantly on the move, exploring new terrains, traveling, lecturing, and giving demonstrations on regional cuisine.

One of Zimmern's TV shows that I relish watching for ever is Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern which was premiered on the Travel channel few years back. Bizarre Foods is an award winning show that took home many awards for Best television food program. Produced in the style of a documentary, in this show, he travels the world researching the food in its native region, no matter wherever he has to travel for this quest. Each episode of the show is unique covering the cuisine of a particular country and depicts the way food is procured, the way it is served and consumed. Without a hint of reluctance, Andrew Zimmern hosts the show being one among the community and eats the food no matter how bizarre it is. This show is incorporates out-of-the-ordinary cuisine and references to it from around the globe. It is a mix of traditional foods passed down by ancestor and the modern dishes born out of innovations which is sometimes exotic and familiar. The show explores the quirky cultures, enduring traditions and the unusual ways it is fed by communities.
