Food Network has announced Have Fork, Will Travel, a new reality series that follows comedian Zane Lamprey as he indulges in dishes from around the world, will premiere Tuesday, September 4 at 9:30PM ET/PT.
Each half-hour episode of Have Fork, Will Travel follows Lamprey as he dines on exotic dishes in order to learn more about the cultures and traditions of the people who prepare it. Locations Lamprey will travel to in Have Fork, Will Travel include Morocco, France, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Norway and Russia.
"Zane has an approachable 'every man' quality about him that our viewers will be able to relate to," said Bob Tuschman, Food Network's senior vice president of programming and production. "He's a man who loves to eat and who will inject his trademark humor into his discovery of foreign cultures."
Lamprey currently serves as host for MOJO Network's Three Sheets, which is currently in its second season and follows a similar format to Have Fork, Will Travel -- only instead of just tasting food he also enjoys the best alcohol a culture has to offer. The 31-year-old currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, and the couple is expecting their first child.
