Bizarre Foods’ Andrew Zimmern to Visit Soulard Farmers Market in March

Bizarre Foods‘ Andrew Zimmern to Visit Soulard Farmers Market in March

Lest there was any doubt, St. Louis is officially bizarre. According to the Travel Channel, that is.

That’d be Bizarre host Andrew Zimmern, Gut Check surmises.

Zimmern has indeed become a beloved television personality since his show debuted in 2007. Zimmern has since traveled the world eating local delicacies. Last season the show changed its name from Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern to Bizarre Foods America, presumably because Zimmern now believes our nation’s cuisine is fair game for the “bizarre” label. (The word, when attached to food, makes Gut Check cringe a little, and not because we’re squeamish about what people choose to put in their mouths. We’re the “eat and let eat” type. To paraphrase our mother, bizarre is as bizarre does.)

Be that as it may, fair game is likely on Zimmern’s list. Specifically raccoon, beaver and possum. Muskrat too, if it’s available. Squirrel? Probably too pedestrian for A to the Z. He can spice things up with a little Goose Poop, perhaps. We wouldn’t rule out a stop at Peter’s Pork Rinds, either. More as we learn it.
