Who would have thought that there would be a career in TV about eating weird food?
I am willing to bet your high school guidance counselor never advised you this:
“Well, I would advise you that your future; your career is in eating bugs, weird meats or traveling around the world devouring what ever the natives gave you.”
(Ironically, sponging food off natives is not unknown by most of my relatives.
I just never knew that it could be a career.)

Ironically, I could have predicted this trend when remembering my childhood.
Before I even traveled to Europe, I realized that America has strange foods and strange people. We are immigrants, and the USA is full of weirdos a plenty without going global. Without bothering to get on that jet plane, I saved money and just met my relatives in the good ole USA to encounter strange people, who spoke in strange tongues and ate unusual foods.
I no longer have a burning desire to meet foreigners,since I can be insulted close to home, right on my block even. If an urge of travel hits me, I just think of my relatives
from Texas, and my feelings of love of foreigners goes away quickly.

As a baby-boomer I thought of jobs in travel as being a pilot(now a job that lost its cache) or travel agent, hotel worker, chef, cabbie all these jobs didn't have much glamor.
During the 1960s there were no celebrity chefs, or TV channels devoted to food.
With the exception for Julia Child, I had never seen or heard of a famous chef.
My Mother or grandmother watched Julia's show in amazement, as Julie de-boned a duck,but then when back to open a can of Cambell's soup, a package of frozen vegetables,some sort of meat. These items were dumped into a casserole dish and heated for an undisclosed amount of time in the oven. Normally, until the food was black.

It was horrid and truly American.
