Best Bites

Join Andrew as he relives some of the best bites from the first season. He'll show you scenes you've never seen before, and revisit those worth seeing again. You'll also get a sneak preview of what's in store for the second season.First up, Andrew explores some of his favorite markets, one of his first stops in any country. In Manila he ate balut, shrimp pancakes, deep-fried duck eggs, and whole baby chickens. Next, a special treat in Taiwan: cock's combs, hen's uterus and unlaid eggs, all in one bag. And finally, cockles and whelks in a market in Wales. Next, Andrew shares some of the disappearing food practices and traditions he's experienced around the world. In the Philippines, it's uok, a giant worm with a very strange taste! In London, Andrew is served a traditional treat: mixed beef pie, mashed potatoes, and stewed eels, all topped with a secret green sauce. And in Tobago, Andrew is shown how to dive for conch, and gets to eat the catch right on the beach!Some of the best stories Andrew finds aren't entirely about the food. Many times, the people he encounters while in search of unusual foods are just as intriguing. Those crazy characters include three guys in Alaska who cooked Andrew's lunch on the engine of their snowmobiles, and a Louisiana man who took Andrew nutria hunting in the bayous. Now for some of Andrew's personal favorite scenes from season one. He begins on the water in Mexico with an octopus diver. After catching enough for lunch, they go back to the diver's restaurant to feast on their catch. Next he heads to Trinidad and Tobago to meet "the original souse king." Andrew samples the souse - pork, chicken, or seafood that has been boiled and pickled in a salty brine of lime juice, cucumber, peppers and onions, then served cold. The Bizarre Foods team shoots hundreds of hours of footage every year, much of which never makes it to the air. Andrew shares a few of those stories you probably never saw. He takes you to New York for a hot dog at the Papaya King, and then to Hanoi for sea scallops, barramundi and crab salad from celebrity chef Bobby Chinn.And finally, a sampling of season two of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern- all new shows with even more freaky food from around the world!
