What’s on Andrew Zimmern’s Desk…
Happy Friday from the Food Works office! Andrew is currently on location filming next season, which not only means longer lunch breaks for Dusti and I (just kidding AZ…), but also means he can’t stop me from posting these incriminating pics of his messy desk.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
First, you gotta have pics of the wife and kid. We’ve also got a photo from Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine’s Taste! party (with fellow bald chef Tom Colicchio and winemaker Salvatore Principe), and another framer from AZ’s appearance on the Tonight Show. In the upper right corner, you’ll also see a customized, handmade Bizarre Foods plate made by Kaas Glassworks.
99 new calls?! If you’re trying to get a hold of Andrew, might I suggest sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org? It’s the best way to get heard. The Son of a Pitch DVD is actually my brother’s online TV series. I think it’s hilarious, but I am biased. He’s currently working on taking his first short film (Bear Force One) to the 3-D screen. You’ll also notice the “Z” shaped post-it notes. They are the WORST thing to write a message on– there’s hardly any room to write a cohesive message.
Andrew reads more magazines, newspapers, and books than anyone I know. He saves all of them. We’ve got every F+W and Bon Appetit issue since 1992, and too many others to count. They’re all tagged with post-its, and covered with notes. This is a really big part of the research process for Bizarre Foods. Another random fact: He has three copies of the last Gourmet issue, wrapped in plastic.
AZ as a kid. I think this is a passport photo. I love the bowl cut. Too cute.
Ever wonder what people do with their James Beard Awards? Here’s his. I think need to get that framed eventually.
What’s the most bizarre thing at your desk? Here’s mine:
Me + my bro + 1987 = Denim on denim… on denim… with a denim background. Thanks Mom!
