Bizarre Foods Host Andrew Zimmern Expected in Denver

It appears Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern will be town this weekend, and not coincidently, he'll be here for a bizarre meal. As first leaked on Parallel 17's Facebook page, chef/owner Mary Nguyen (also of Street Kitchen Asian Bistro) will host Zimmern during next Tuesday's Adventurous Eaters Club dinner— an evening focused on a rather ballsy menu created by Nguyen. What's for dinner? Here's the menu:

·Ant larvae beignets with a kaffir lime sauce
·Jellyfish salad, granny smith apples and sansho buttons
·Goat agnolotti, chrysanthemum, ricotta salata, lemon basil oil
·Tom Yum Taley with pork uterus, baby octopus, baby water crabs
·Fermented Soybean Spring rolls, hot mustard
·Confit of Duck tongue, corn flan, kasu sake lees
·Coq au vin with Silkie chicken, toriashi, puff ball, bailing and king trumpet mushrooms and Chinese red dates
·Coconut Caterpillar Torte, pandan ice cream

The Travel Channel will also be in town to film Food Paradise at Vesta Dipping Grill next Tuesday between 6 and 8 p.m., and reservations are still available. Call Vesta Dipping Grill at (303) 296-1970. To snag a reservation for Nguyen's Adventurous Eaters dinner, call Parallel 17 at (303) 399-0988.
