My mother taught cooking - first in our home, then in a shop/school/restaurant she opened back in the 1970s. It was not unusual for me to eat sweetbreads or calves brains or raw meat back then - which gave me my foundation for a love of indigenous foods. That may have a bearing on why I just adore Andrew Zimmern and his series Bizarre Foods. He has a love of culture and treats the people who host his tours of different countries with such honor and respect. At the same time he fun, witty and charming. I find every episode of this collection as well as the first one exciting to watch. I cannot say enough nice things about the show itself as I feel there is an importance to people understanding true local foods and cultures that have not been tampered with by refined foods that frankly -are not doing us any good at all. I would rate this series 10 stars if I could. Who knew watching a man eat fish eyes could be so much fun!

Andrew Zimmern is the intrepid host of "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel, and I have not missed a single episode! He is a wonderful host, taking a genuine interest in other cultures, always respectful and polite, and of course, adventurous in his culinary excursions! In this collection, some of the interesting and exotic cuisine to look forward to are lamb brains and goat testicles in Delhi, and rotten shark in Barcelona. Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods is a wonderful, fun way to explore other cultures and 'sample' their native foods from the comfort of one's own home!I'm a fan for life!

I got this collection for my hubby and he loves it. He actually watches how Andrew Zimmern digs eyeballs out of sheep heads and soulfully moaning slurps them down. And that's just an example of those 'Bizarre Foods'. All together the episodes are more entertaining than gross and you can actually watch them over and over and still be amused by wiggling worms and nicely plated rotten meat. Makes me wonder what Andrews wife cooks for dinner.

Really interesting. Nice scenery of the countryside and a good explanation of some historical issues. Good connections with the Americas

I bought it as a gift to my father in law and he watches over and over...Needless to say I am very happy with this purchase! As always a pleasure to shop at Amazon.
