Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin

Hosted by Jeff Corwin

Thailand

Jeff Corwin tears through Thailand exploring the unique foods indigenous to the land. He samples deadly wasp and bamboo larvae straight from the groves of Mae Hong Son, and then he and his guide use traditional bamboo materials to catch and cook catfish mixed with forest-grown greens and spices in the Pai River. Jeff veers off the beaten path in Bangkok for a feast of silk worms, grasshoppers, and live shrimp that literally “dance” into his mouth and helps prepare Moo Yaang Trang, roasted pig cooked in underground ovens, in the Trang Province. Then, in the Muslim fishing village of Palian, Jeff learns the extensive production process of fish sauce and trudges through coastline mud to harvest and eat fresh blood cockles. Loy Krathong (The Festival of Lights) and delicious street food wrap up Jeff’s culinary quest. (Episode: JXSP01H)
