Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels is a television show based on cook Rachael Ray and her travels around the world. However, in this show she is not restricted by a budget and showcases food from more upscale eateries. She tries different types of food from each place she visits, and gives a "Hot List of Values", which includes some of her favorite places visited from $40 a Day. The show airs on the Food Network and is her fourth Food Network program. It first aired on August 26, 2005. She provides voiceovers for most of the show and is shown at only one or two places. Her husband, John Cusimano, usually accompanies her at the one or two restaurants she visits per episode. The show was developed with Producer Wade Sheeler following the success of her first travel show on Food Network, $40 a Day. Forty-one episodes were produced during the series' first two years; Ray stated on a September 7, 2007 appearance on Late Show with David Letterman that she had just completed work on twenty additional episodes, which had begun airing the previous week.

This season Anthony Bourdain takes viewers to 15 locations that will surprise him and defy his expectations - for better or for worse. In some cases Tony will be challenged by what he sees. Mozambique is a country emerging from a history of colonial oppression and years of brutal civil war. It's filled with heartbreak and beauty - and amazingly good food that mixes African, Portuguese and Indian influences. It is one of the more surprising places Tony has seen in his years as a professional traveler. The Croatian Coast is at the opposite end of the spectrum. It seems to be unaware of it's own good fortune - beautiful coastline, truffles, wine, cheese and seafood. It's no wonder that some see it as the new Riviera. Against his own best instincts, Tony goes to Finland in the middle of winter. Minimal daylight and the cold weather aren't the big draws here. Tony has a huge fan following in Finland and he needs to know why. Lisbon is a place that Tony feels like he should have visited long ago. There he uncovers the political side of some Portuguese traditions - like fado music. South By Southwest, a veritable deluge of hipsterdom, unexpectedly located in the conservative stronghold of Texas. Austin may be known for being weird year-round, but this event brings together the music, movies, and mixed media of quirky indie fans from around the country. Tony is here to figure out what exactly makes this event so crazy, so awesome, and so unique. And as usual, Tony brings an intellectual curiosity, empathy, wit and a boundless appetite to every location he visits.
