We’re reaching the end of the hype week for the South Korea episode of “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.”
This has all been in the works since we first got the call to help with the show back in August 2008. I don’t think I have another Bizarre Foods post left in me. By now, I think they’re scattered all over the place. So I’ll link all the Bizarre Foods Posts here.
