Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin

Hosted by Jeff Corwin

New Zealand

In a country known for adventure, Jeff Corwin needs serious skills to discover the culinary experience of New Zealand. Jeff repels deep into the Waitomo Caves into mysterious underground rivers for green-finned eels and then free dives for monster spiny lobster and prized black abalone in the coastal town of Kaikoura. In a world with two distinct cultures, Jeff connects with traditional Maori tribes of the North Island for crayfish hunting and a Hangi feast cooked in boiling sulfur springs. Then he visits the South Island for sheep herding and a colonial goose – a deceptive mutton dish shaped like a goose created by the British colonists. (Episode: JX0201H)
