Just what the west needs - a TV show all about "bizarre" foods from around the world. Before you watch the first episode, you can see where this is going: fat bald guy, mugging for the camera, one raised eyebrow, and a book on the subject.
Here's part one of his trip to Korea:
In the first 25 seconds he describes Korean food as stinky, foul, fermented, horrifying, scary, and "a freakshow in a bowl."
Just once I'd like to see TV treat Korean food as regular food that a normal person might want to eat. This is an extreme example, but it's either shown to be "weird" food, or too spicy, or in need of "fusion" with something else, or made into a pizza.
The other extreme is it's shown to be something ancient and foreign and mysterious, with a 5,000 year old reverence, usually with a mention of kings and/or princes.
It's only when some of these 2nd generation Koreans from LA get on TV and something sneaks on the airwaves which treats Korean food as something normal and part of everyday life.
But the day will come when some white people will get on TV and state that they like kimchi, and there's nothing wrong with it.
