Bizzare Foods Chicago To Air February 15

The Chicago episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, which filmed here last summer, will air on Travel Channel on Feb. 15.Featured chefs include Grant Achatz, Rick Bayless, and Graham Elliot Bowles.

What’s so bizarre about hot dogs you ask?” It’s not about finding the nastiest food in Chicago but what appears ordinary to Chicagoans - like hot dogs with kelly green relish- might draw out distress signals from other parts of the globe.

As the Chicago Tribune put it:” finding grilled sparrows on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City is normal, but not on Maxwell Street.”
Bon Appetit!
