A Conversation with Andrew Zimmern

Apr 11, 2017

Tuesday, we’re talking to global gourmand Andrew Zimmern. As the host of the TV program Bizarre Foods, he’s explored the culture and foods of more than 150 countries. The gimmick of his show, as he’s said, is a fat, white Jew from New York going around the world eating weird stuff. But he hopes that the strange stories he tells inspire people to “stop practicing contempt prior to investigation.” Zimmern is in Utah this week, and he’ll join us to discuss his life, travels, and love of food.

Andrew Zimmern is a three-time James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, writer and teacher. He’s the creator, executive producer, and host of the Bizarre Foods franchise on Travel Channel. He also co-hosts, along with Molly Mogren, the food podcast Go Fork Yourself

On Tuesday, April 11, Andrew Zimmern is giving the keynote lecture in the Natural History Museum of Utah's 2017 Utah Lecture Series. That event is at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $12; $6 with a University of Utah ID. DETAILS
