Needed distraction allows us to view culture. And understand human one. Of human condition primary nèed food. I like he doesn't get all political. Or media news spin about it just different ways ppl around the world enjoy dining.

I don't watch his shows when I'm on a diet! Really tempting! But I agree that his job is really nice. Travel, eat, repeat!

I was taken back a little when I heard him say the show was more about places off the beaten path-non touristy .
And the way to get people interested in that was through food.
