There’s not a food on the planet that’s too bizarre for culinary expert Andrew Zimmern to try. The first episode in the new season sees him tackle the Pony Express Trail, exploring the mail delivery service that had a profound impact on the United States. He eats elk tongue, fish skin and an oyster omelette while on his adventure. What makes this show special is that it isn’t just about the extraordinary food – it also gets into the history behind it.
