Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods America was picked up for another season
Hot off the heels of Andrew Zimmern's 2013 James Beard Award win for Outstanding Personality/Host, the Travel Channel has announced that it will renew his popular food and culture show, Bizarre Foods America, for another season. The announcement, made yesterday, states that America's most adventurous eater will continue to tackle some of the United States' most interesting delicacies.
Bizarre Foods first aired in 2007. In 2010, Zimmern received his first James Beard Award for the program, which he won again this past spring.

According to the Travel Channel's press release:
"In the fifth season of 'Bizarre Foods America,' chef, writer, and culinary explorer Andrew Zimmern is back as he continues his quest to taste the weird and wonderful foods that can be found right here in the U.S. This time around, Zimmern heads to some of America's iconic cities including Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Atlantic City."
The show started its life as Bizarre Foods, but after it's first six seasons, the show switched from its globally focused format to center on native odd edibles. This will be the 11th season of the Bizarre Foods series, and its fifth focusing solely on the United States.
