My go-to show these days is Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. I don’t have the attention span anymore for the cooking competitions I used to adore, and sometimes Gordon Ramsay stresses me out too much, but Bizarre Foods is just… weirdly delightful? If you haven’t seen it, and aren’t too squeamish, I highly recommend giving it a try. He is genuinely delighted with whatever is served him, and talks about it in ordinary food terms–not, “Can you BELIEVE it, these people eat GIANT SNAILS, look how GrOoOoOoSsSsS” but just how you’d prepare it, all the details, “you can tell they’ve perfected this recipe by boiling the gumminess out of the snail first, then letting it dry so that it gets a nice sear when it hits the pan.” That kind of thing. Wherever he goes he hangs out with a local translator and tries to fit in and be respectful and make friends. It’s just so nice and also about food.
