Great show. He travels all over the globe and highlights a lot of the weird - weird, as we would perceive it - foods and dishes that people eat in different places around the world.
Nope, never caught the show.

I don't know what accounts for the New Orlean's magic, but it's just there, not only in the well-known establishments, but particularly in the hole-in-the-wall joints as well. I lived there for about a year back in 79-80, and so I got to eat at a lot of local spots in addition to all the famous places.

As I said, nothing quite like it anywhere in the world in my experience.

By the way, the men's Snowboard Cross is on right now, and it is spectacular. I must say, I'd like to try that myself sometime.
