What’s DooFy and striped and curious all over?
Give up? It’s my best buddy and fellow culinary explorer, ZeBot Planet-DooF!
Why is a fuzzy zebra from outer space hanging out in farmers’ market vegetable bins, artisanal cheese shops and specialty spice racks?
Because he’s on a DooFy mission to explore colorful new ways to jazz up the freshest recipes in the galaxy – and have tons of fun doing it!
ZeBot has beamed himself down from our DooFian galaxy to team up with me for the biggest-ever culinary exploration of Planet Earth.
We’re cruising around the planet in our space-and-time-traveling GastroPod on a quest to learn about food from every possible perspective: from flavors and recipes to science, history and culture.
Recently, we visited the Fancy Food Show in Washington, D.C., where we discovered some of the most amazing foods on the planet.
Of course, when it comes to healthy, great-tasting food, ZeBot and I are in search of ALL the answers.
As any kid will tell you, the best way to find answers is to ask lots of questions — and one of a DooFian’s favorite ways to do it is with riddles.
Here’s an example:
“Some people think I’m a vegetable, but I’m really a fruit. I taste great raw in salads or on sandwiches, or you can cook me to make pasta sauce or ketchup. Who am I?”
For the answer to this and other edible riddles (plus some cool recipes), check out our latest DooFy adventure on Planet W-S:
And stay tuned for more exciting adventures: next up is a DooFy encounter of the vintage kind!
