Zimmern road trips with MSN, Toyota
Man, infomercials. I'm going to have to go ahead and take the position that they're not necessarily all that bad. I got completely absorbed the other day by one in Time about White House Chef Cristeta Comerford that was *totally* interesting but also *totally* just a vehicle for Ragú and Hellmann's. And now there's Zimmern hitting the road in a new Toyota Venza. In the first installment of a new MSN feature called "Appetite for Life," our man AZ hits Sedona, Ariz. and Pacific Northwest hotspots Eugene, Ore., Portland, and Seattle. The resulting five-minute videos are accompanied by regional recipes, tourist tips and Q&As with local proprietors. *Totally* not bad. BONUS: See Zimmern with his shirt off and hear him mispronounce the word "hombre" in the Sedona episode.
