Food

What it’s like to be on TV with Andrew Zimmern

Here’s a short clip from Bizarre Foods America! If you catch the whole episode, I have the last five minutes of the show.

How did I even end up in this strange position? A producer found my What to Eat in the Golden Shopping Mall Basement and First Floor articles and y’know, I ended up doing 2 days of filming (one day of scouting, another on camera with Andrew).

The segment came out great, but there were so many great one-liners and zingers that didn’t make their way in. Filming with Andrew really made me appreciate how much of a pro this guy is – the ability to confidently stride into any situation, say something intelligent and knowledgeable about the food, and also be funny on demand is pretty incredible to see. (I can do this once in a while, by accident. It’s the consistency that makes him a professional.)

I was worried initially about flopping on camera …

(Right now, I have the funniest image in my head of flopping around on the floor like a fish)

… but as it turned out, there’s a reason Andrew’s the host – it was like having an expert dance partner take the lead. I didn’t really have to do anything other than follow along and stay out of his way.

The camera crew and producers were what really made those two days special. They were the sweetest guys possible, and I really enjoyed getting to chat with them and learn about their work and lives. I’d do it again just to get to hangout with them.

  1. Always remember your blog is a social community or you at least want your readers to feel that way. For example, there are three options: add to Blogger, add to Type – Pad, or add to other website.

  6. Well written and good information, I’ve got nothing to add! I guess I will say that as this is an important aspect of many developing careers, we’re also all responsible for keeping an eye on how this affects the industry over time – especially with “free” becoming a more common price tag every day.

  7. My experience with simple.tv has been exactly what I expected from this type of technology, even slightly above my expectations. The picture quality is perfect – there appears to be no signal compression so the picture looks exactly as it would if my antenna was directly connected to my TV. The unit I’m using also has a pass-through outpu
