‘Man Eats Wild’ Premieres on Outdoor Channel on Monday, September 20September 20, 2021
Hardcore adventurer and award-winning restaurateur Mario Kalpou Offers New Series
DENVER (September 20, 2021) – Tune in for Outdoor Channel’s newest – and tastiest – food adventure. Follow award-winning restauranteur, Mario Kalpou, in his series Man Eats Wild, premiering on Monday, September 20 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
In this Outdoor Channel original series, viewers will follow Kalpou, a hardcore adventurer and award-winning restaurateur, on his journey across the globe in his attempts to harvest wild food in the most extreme environments. Whether diving for lobsters and having a close encounter with a Great White Shark, to stalking Himalayan Tahr above the clouds in New Zealand, Kalpou is on a mission to educate viewers about their food sources – whether it’s from deep in the ocean or high above sea level.
“This show is about reconnecting people with their food,” Kalpou shared. “We don’t really know what we are eating in these large supermarket chains. I like to show people exactly what you are eating by harvesting it yourself. I go out into the world and harvest gourmet food and make incredible dishes. My goal is to demonstrate what you can do with a truly good cut of meat.”
In the first episode, Kalpou climbs the highest mountain range in New Zealand (the Aoraki/Mount Cook) to go after Himalayan Tahr – with his bow. “We were above the clouds trying to find these Tahr, which can be very elusive, and it made it one of the most memorable hunts,” explained Kalpou. “One of the things we are trying to get across on this show is not as much about the harvesting the animals, but the adventures we go on to find those animals. When would I have ever found myself above the clouds on a New Zealand Mountain range if I wasn’t going after these Tahr?”
The first season follows Kalpou in the outback of Australia, to the mountains and seas of New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Kalpou shares his eventual goal is to cover the entire world showcasing the best of organic, natural food.
Tune in to Man Eats Wild on Outdoor Channel on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. ET. Learn more about Kalpou and his take on the series by listening to him on “The Revolution with Jim and Trav.”
