From navigating the kitchens of acclaimed three-Michelin star restaurants to negotiating dinner in one of Southeast Asia's hidden jungle markets, it all comes easily to Andrew Zimmern. He is the co-creator, host and contributing producer of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern on the Travel Channel. He travels the world, decoding cultures and countries one meal at a time.

Zimmern knows that one man's weird is another man's wonderful, and isn't afraid to poke a little fun at the local fare or himself. This energetic chef, culinary anthropologist and unapologetic food lover takes viewers deep into the heart of a people to savor the local cuisine -- even if it means chewing on eggs with legs, gulping down a frog's still-beating heart or learning kitchen techniques from the tribeswomen of the Kalahari. It's all about sharing food and culture.

A New York City native, Zimmern began his formal culinary training at the age of 14, apprenticing with some of the greatest chefs in the world. As a journalist, Zimmern is one of the world's leading experts on what to eat and where to eat it, and his byline appears monthly in Delta's SKY magazine. In May 2010, Zimmern won the James Beard Award for Outstanding TV Food Personality, the nation's most prestigious recognition for food and beverage industry professionals. His book, The Bizarre Truth, chronicles his life on the road, and the food, people and adventures that make traveling such a life changing experience.

He's been a guest chef at national charity events, food festivals, and galas, including the New York City Wine and Food Festival and the James Beard House in New York City, and has been a guest on numerous shows including Top Chef Masters, Iron Chef, the Today Show and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He is a three-time James Beard Award winner and seven-time nominee.

Zimmern is in demand as a speaker on a variety of topics, not only related to bizarre foods and, but to his amazing personal journey from homeless drug addict and alcoholic to his recovery and current success. Andrew says, "Any decision that I make, anything that I do, every single consideration of my day goes through the prism of what my former experience has been. And I have a life based on completely different principles now and I try to stick with those. I think it has been the secret to my success."

No matter where he appears, he's game for anything and knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source. So whether he's chasing down giant aquatic rodents in the Louisiana bayou or plating sea urchin roe with Nobu Matsuhisa, you can be sure the guy with the iron stomach will always dish up the unimaginable.
