Hit Travel and Cuisine Show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern Filming in Croatia

Bizarre_Foods_with_Andrew_Zimmern_logoFirst it was famous American TV Chef Anthony Bourdain, then British culinary chef Rick Stein and the BBC crew to visit Croatia to explore and promote Croatia’s fabulous cuisine to the world…

The latest world-famous cuisine production crew to come to town is Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, and with a television audience of over 9 million people per episode, some more wonderful culinary and travel promotion for Croatia is around the corner, as portal Total Split reports.

“Total Split has been in contact with the Bizarre Foods team a couple of times over the last few weeks, but it is the contribution of one of our partners – Secret Dalmatia – which has been crucial, as they have been involved with the project from the very start and did most of the scouting for the show pointing out numerous great places in Split region. Alan Mandic of Secret Dalmatia picked all the most interesting venues and experiences and the producers made their selection. Secret Dalmatia (through their Culinary – Croatia web site) has been a leader in the culinary travel in Croatia since 2009 offering numerous behind the closed doors experiences viewers from around the world will now be able to see,” writes Total Split.

Bizarre Foods have shot in Split and nearby Trogir, and will soon head to the island of Brač and to parts of the Dalmatian hinterland.
