Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin

Hosted by Jeff Corwin

Pacific Northwest

Jeff Corwin keeps it relatively local as he eats his way through the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. On the shore of Harstine Island off the coast of Washington, Jeff digs up, and dines on, the world's largest clam - the geoduck (pronounced gooey-duck). He dives Puget Sound to find and harvest sea cucumbers (not a vegetable, but an animal) one of the most unusual animals in the world, and filled with ooey-gooey roe - a bizarre experience, and an amazing taste sensation. Jeff climbs the rocky waterfalls to hunt and catch lampreys with the Grand Ronde Indian tribe, and joins a native American "gathering of the tribes" to celebrate their heritage, their tradition and celebrate the bounty of the sea with a big beach clambake.
