I asked if you could guess which celebrity chef was in Korea. One of you guessed correctly.
For a couple of weeks, Eun Jeong, a few valuable friends and I have been helping the production of “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” set up locations, food suggestions, research and on-air guides for their shoot in Korea. Eun Jeong herself, along with our friends Eun-hak and Daniel (Seoul Eats) got to be on the show eating “bizarre foods” (what we usually call “lunch”).
We can’t give away what’s going to be on the show yet, but I can say right now that it promises to be the best food show about Korea, even better than the Korea shows done by “The Thirsty Traveler” (“So, This is Soju“) and “Anthony Bourdain No Reservations.” Now, I think both those shows did well, so this is saying a lot.
The episode comes out on the Travel Channel sometime between December and February.
NOTE: For a comprehensive look at the episode, including behind-the-scenes stories, photos, restaurants and info about the foods, click here.
The latest word is April 21st. I have a series of posts planned that go behind the scenes.
Did the episode come out? Season 4 kicks off and Tanzania is first.
I know there are some episodes that are not aired.
Awesome – I’ve been addicted to the series since “discovering” it a couple of weeks ago. My wife and I were wondering when and if they were going to do a Seoul edition.
We have at least a dozen delicacies that (we think) will be on the show – looking forward to your posts!
