Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that since the host of this series purposely seeks out unusual food choices -- by American standards, that is -- viewers will see him eat things like rodents, insects, fertilized eggs, and whole baby chickens on a stick. Outdoor market scenes often show animal carcasses and seafood being butchered, so this probably isn't for the littlest viewers -- or older ones with weak stomachs.

Sexual Content

Occasionally food is referred to as an aphrodisiac.


All kinds of animals, fish, and insects are eaten whole (including heads, feet, and wings) -- some while they're still alive. Many scenes show animal carcasses being butchered.
