Balut is not cool, but Zimmern is
That week, one of the other artists brought it to the studio for us to try. Gib said he wouldn't eat it. I was gonna try, but I couldn't get past the smell of it - - smelled like the chicken/duck barn we had growing up. Others tried it (briefly)... then last year - a guy comes on TV with a show about all kinds of wild stuff to eat.
This year, his show - BIZARRE FOODS - just got a cool new animated intro (although I liked the tentacles of S1: see title by Motion504). http://www.travelchannel.com/TV_Shows/Bizarre_Foods
You can get the whole first season on DVD now!! (And apparently there's a book coming)
Check out Chef Zimmern's show on The Travel Channel, and read his blog:
How can all this crazy food make you hungry? it just does.... mmmm jellied moose nose. Plus beautiful video footage of the locations. Hope this comes out in HD soon. Although S1 was probably shot SD.
