BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
A culinary heavy hitter was in town Wednesday to feature two cooks and raise a little cabbage for a good cause.
"Food is in the DNA here, don't ya think?" said Andrew Zimmern.
If anybody knows food, it's Zimmern, host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods and the new webcast, Appetite for Life.
He's traveled the world bringing exotic and sometimes strange foods into living rooms around the country. He took a lunch break in the Capital City Wednesday.
"Louisiana is probably the only state in the entire nation that when you say the words, everyone can taste it," said Zimmern.
He's here to feature classic Louisiana cooking on his growing webcast and he's got jambalaya cookoff veterans Tee Wayne Abshire and Carlos Braud to share their family secrets.
"You can taste the brown roux. You can taste the crawfish. You can taste smoked meat, bacon, and chili, and the holy trinity of Cajun cooking," said Zimmern.
But it's not just jambalaya Zimmern is here to taste. Also on the menu, the growing popularity of food truck cuisine - from local favorites to traditional fare.
"Everybody in this part of the world still knows how to cook. You ask a 12-year-old to make you breakfast - he'll make you breakfast," said Zimmern.
"Whether I'm going to tribal Africa or Baton Rouge, it's not about the animals, or the scenery, or the architecture. To me, it's about the people and the history and why they eat the things they eat," he added.
It's that family flavor Zimmern hopes to bring to the web when his show airs in late spring.
Proceeds from all the food sold during the filming of Zimmern's show will go to the Capital Area United Way.
