In “Pluijm’s eetbare wereld”, René Pluijm travels around, seeking out culinary treasures. He learns about various cultures and why people eat the way they do. At each place René visits, he is guided and amazed by a specialist of the region, who never seizes to astound him with deeply rooted knowledge of the local culture and all things food. René and his host are not only driven to find out about cultural and culinary practices, but also to learn from each other. Together they take the viewer along on their interactive and exciting journey of discovery.
At the end of each episode, René enters into a friendly cook-off, in which the inspiration gained is captured into various dishes. Local people get to taste the food and determine whose local dish is the best.
