  • Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern is back with a new Travel Channel series that premieres tonight. Instead of traveling the globe and eating delicacies that some Americans might find, well, bizarre, Zimmern “is sharing his personal recommendations on the food and places where he most loves to eat,” according to an announcement about the show. The first episode of The Zimmern List, which takes the chef-turned-television personality to Los Angeles, airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT. That one will be immediately followed by an episode that delves into the dining scene in Austin.

  • Ikea, the home-furnishings giant that helped put Scandinavian design and cuisine on the map in the United States, is trying to do the same with mealworms. The company is experimenting with burgers made from “a concoction of mealworms and root vegetables.” This is what Ikea calls the “fast food of the future.”
  • In news that must be troubling for producers of those little cans of air, Apple has patented a crumb-resistant keyboard. Finally, desk-lunchers will be able to enjoy their sandwiches with reckless abandon.
  • True love really does exist. Tom and Abby, the adorable couple from the first episode of the Queer Eye reboot, are engaged.
