The Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods America with Andrew Zimmern is shooting an episode on Kentucky this week. Aided by a handsome local guide (that'd be this editor), crew members spent Saturday stopping at Louisville restaurants to determine which ones Zimmern will visit today. It's expected that segments will be recorded at three of them—including tonight's Eater Louisville Launch party at Proof on Main. The episode is slated to air in the spring.

For a segment on hip Louisville restaurants, on Saturday a producer, two cameramen and a writer scoped out and shot B roll at Garage Bar, Taco Punk, Decca, Rye, Holy Grale, Hillbilly Tea, Seviche: A Latin Restaurant and The Blind Pig. Two crew members had visited 610 Magnolia and Proof on Main earlier last week.

Zimmern arrived in Louisville on Sunday to kick off his visit with a game dinner with Edward Lee at 610 Magnolia. He and Lee are slated to chat today at Wagner's Pharmacy for an intro to that piece.

Other segments planned for Bizarre Foods America's Kentucky episode include
-touring Louisville's Bourbon Barrel Foods
-hunting and cooking with Tim Farmer, host of KET"s Kentucky Afield's and the CW's Country Cooking with Tim Farmer
-sampling mutton BBQ in Owensboro

Bizarre Foods America, which debuted in January 2012, is a spinoff of Bizarre Foods. It focuses more on cuisine that reflects its locality than on the weird (so don't expect to see Zimmern eating any penis here).
