Tuesday, December 18, 6:30PM: Andrew Zimmern


From paper to blueberries, to the occasional rubber band or even cat food—our resident chicken Carl Sagan’s appetite is not very discerning, to say the least. You can understand, then, why she is oft compared to Andrew Zimmern, local author, chef and television host known for his gutsy tastes.

We do worry that some things Carl Sagan (aka Billina) eats are slightly unhealthy for a chicken and do our best to step in, though she doesn’t always listen. That’s why we’re hoping that Zimmern will be a guiding influence to her madcap inclinations when he comes to Wild Rumpus on Tuesday, December 18th at 6:30pm to discuss and sign copies of his newest book Andrew Zimmern's Field Guide to Exceptionally Weird, Wild, & Wonderful Foods: An Intrepid Eater's Digest which details his favorite experiences with food both here and abroad. Whether you’re a choosy or courageous eater, join Billina to hear about Andrew Zimmern's many adventures.
