Last night on Bizarre Foods America, Andrew Zimmern traveled to the Hawkeye State. From the moment he landed, he was elbow-deep in pork! First he visited La Quercia, an Italian-inspired artisanal meat producer. Next, he traveled to Rustik Rooster Farm, where farmers have perfected the art cross-breeding (and then slow-roasting!) some of the most delicious pigs in America. Andrew’s trip to Iowa was one for the books — relive moments from his pork-filled journey, watch episode highlights and see behind-the-scenes photos. Then, be sure to tune in next Monday at 9|8c, when Andrew visits Alaska!

This year’s edition also included the first fashion shoot to take place on the ice-covered terrain of Antarctica. And Travel Channel has the pleasure of airing the 1-hour special Sports Illustrated®: The Making of Swimsuit ’13 – 7 Continents, 17 Wonders, on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 8|7c.
