"Bizarre Foods" chef Andrew Zimmern was in Morro Bay and elsewhere in San Luis Obispo County this week filming for his Travel Channel TV show. Here is a brief clip of his visit with Capt. Travis Evans of Avila Beach. Evans is a local fisherman.

The “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” episode featuring the Central Coast is airing on the Travel Channel this week.

The episode, which debuted Monday night, will air again Tuesday at 6 p.m. and midnight and Sunday at 7 p.m.

Back in December, Zimmern filmed a segment of his show at Tognazzini’s Dockside in Morro Bay. He also went fishing in Avila Beach before going to Grover Beach for a barbecue with a local fishing family. Zimmern stopped at other locations along the Central Coast, including Santa Barbara and Santa Maria, where grill masters at the Elks Lodge prepared a full tri-tip dinner.

“His journey takes him hagfish fishing in the Pacific, eating the slimy reproductive organs of sea urchins and foraging for juicy gooseneck barnacles,” reads the description for the episode, called “Cruising the Pacific Coast Highway.”
