LOS ANGELES, California –
TV personality Andrew Zimmern, best known as the host of Bizarre Foods, has traveled the entire world eating crazy and outlandish foods, but in a recent episode of the show, filmed as a special for the holidays, Zimmern claims that human flesh, when cooked properly, is the “most delicious” meat you can ever have on your plate.
“I was hesitant to try eating it, because when someone says ‘Hey, do you want to eat some human flesh,’ your immediate reaction is to say ‘Hell no,'” said Zimmern. “But when they bring you a plate, and it looks and smells delicious, you definitely want to give it a try. So I did, and it’s the greatest food I’ve ever eaten, bar none.”
Zimmern says that while filming in Bangladesh, the extremely underground delicacy was presented to him, but Travel Channel prohibited the segment from being filmed.
“They had something against actual, filmed cannibalism,” said Zimmern. “I have no idea why. It’s probably something of the legalities of it, but hell, I wasn’t in the United States, so why does it matter? At any rate, they flame-broiled me a piece of someone’s ass, and I have to say, it was decidedly the best ass I’ve ever eaten. If I were starving, Donner Party-style, I’d dig right into whatever ass was closest to me. Fried, flambéed, baked – hell, I’d eat that ass raw with a spoon if I could.”
Zimmern says that although the human flesh was delicious, it did give him extreme gas afterwards.
