I was watching the Travel Channel and my favorite host Andrew Zimmern and I got to thinking about some of the places that he has visited that I wanted to visit with interesting food! 

Being that I was also on a Netflix binge a few weeks ago watching cooking shows from India and around  the world, I figured that this was a good time to bring up some delicious food from places that are exciting visually, shocking gastric delights and mentally stimulating! 

Asia and the Far East boasts some really cool street food and Andrew always says the best way to get to know a culture is by its food! 

Yahoo boasted some really unique artistic eating displays from the Top Ten Restaurants around the world..take a look!

I got hooked on a few shows that I hated to see it come to an end so quick on Netflix.  One show titled Somebody Feed Phil 

This quirky and fun loving guy who is a writer from the hit show Everybody Love Raymond, goes on an adventure with his brother and has a nightly conversation with his parents about what he has discovered.  He adds his brand of humor and is excited about everything because it is something that all of us do not get to experience and he wants you to really experience it!

Another show that totally caught my attention (even with the subtitles) was Raja Rasoi Aur Anya Kahaniyaan an Indian television show where you explore Indian cuisine from the street to the palace.  I loved the fact that what we say in here (seasoning the food) is called pulses, like it is the heartbeat of the food. The show also features a combination of recipes using local herbs, rare fowls and elaborate preparation methods.

 

 

 

 

 

A Cook Abroad is a BBC television program in which a celebrity chef travels to another country in order to discover recipes. Originally released in 2015, the program attempts to showcase food from different countries and cultures around the world.

The opening sequence is “Six cooks, six countries six incredible journeys.  What I found interesting is that you cannot judge a book by its cover!  One of the cooks is Tony Singh.  He is fun and lively and he is Sikh with an Irish accent!  It is mind blowing to me how he travels to learn his culture and drinks it all in even when he meets a member of the Maharajah and cooks in luxury!  

 

 

 

When it comes to food there is a whole world out there that is waiting for you to try!  Broaden your pallet and get out there and enjoy!  As Andrew says, “If it looks good, EAT IT”!
