Chef Andrew Zimmern believes the best way to explore a town is to get to know the locals first, and the first local he usually meets is his cabbie. In Travel Channel's new series, Andrew Zimmern's Driven by Food, Andrew discovers the streets behind Main Street, the off-the-grid dives and the fun only insiders know how to find. With his guide -- whether it's a shikara driver in Kashmir, a gondolier in Venice, or a cabbie in the deep south -- Andrew shares a locals-only experience, discovering the uniqueness of every destination. Never staying in the back seat for long, Andrew and his driver take viewers on an entertaining behind-the-scenes adventure, exploring food and culture from a whole new perspective.
Three hackney cabbies show Andrew Zimmern their favorite local spots in London. He hangs out in a cabbie diner near Buckingham Palace, plays darts at a pub that's been open since 1860 and gambles on the greyhounds at Wimbledon Stadium.
Three cabbies take Andrew Zimmern to very different parts of Rio, and he experiences everything from a fun beachside sport to the positive side of a notorious favela. He also eats at a neighborhood institution and treks up Corcovado for an unforgettable view of this colorful city.
Andrew Zimmern leaves his Berlin itinerary up to two taxi drivers, one from the East side of the city and the other from the West. He eats currywurst and haute cuisine at his cabbies' favorite joints, and then tours a secret war bunker.
