Andrew Zimmern is a TV personality, chef, food writer, and teacher, who is widely regarded as one of the most versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world. As the creator, host, and co-executive producer of Travel Channel’s hit series, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World, and Bizarre Foods America, he travels the globe, exploring food in its own terrain. From world-class restaurants to street carts and jungle markets, it’s all about discovering and sharing the authentic experience. Zimmern interprets the way we live our lives through food so that we can make better choices for the future.

As a world traveler (who has adopted Minnesota as home) and culinary explorer who has re-imagined the travel and food experience for a global audience, Andrew Zimmern will reflect on the essential nature of plants and green spaces, share influences that shape how he sees the world, yet beckon him back to Minneapolis-St. Paul...and why there is no place like home.
