From the they may have lost Bourdain, but they sure as hell still have Andrew Zimmern files, Travel Channel announced their new slate of shows that continue to target so-called gastro-tourism — traveling to exotic places for very good things to eat. Also, drink in the case of the show Dangerous Grounds that follows coffee magnate and adventurer Todd Carmichael around the world in search of coffee. Carmichael has been a fixture on the Food Republic coffee power rankings for some time. Coffee is big, people. Believe it.

Andrew Zimmern, who recently told us about his dream vacation to Chengdu and just released a highly entertaining book, Andrew Zimmern's Field Guide to Food, returns with 10 new episodes of Bizarre Foods America — including trips to Houston, St. Louis and New York City. St. Louis is interesting to us, and certainly not for the barbecue.

The network also announced shows about hotel makeovers, ghosts and the Miami airport, for what that's worth. Here are clips from Dangerous Grounds and Bizarre Foods America.
