Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern visits Madison College

MADISON, Wis. — A man who has eaten bamboo rat, cane toad and coral worms visited Madison College on Tuesday night.

Four-time James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Zimmern spent time in an event with the college’s culinary arts program to kick off its 2021-22 Chef Series.

Zimmern is the host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods.

“I believe in the value of food to solve our world’s problems,” Zimmern said. “And I believe a lot of the people showing up today are the ones who are solving them.”

The event was free and brought in more than 100 people.

Donations from the event will support the River Food Pantry.
