January 7, 2013 at 3:50 PM
Emeril Lagasse is taking a break from his day job in New Orleans and hitting the road for a new series, Emeril's Florida.
The famous TV chef will crisscross the Sunshine State to find its best cuisine. “Florida is not only about theme parks and water slides,” Lagasse said. “Sure we’ve got a little bit of that, but we’ve really mixed it up here, we’re following wine, food and farmers.”
Lagasse will visit local restaurants and learn about their specialties, like Alabama Jack’s famous conch fritters and a farm stand that makes a range of fresh smoothies from exotic tropical fruits.
Emeril’s Florida airs on the Cooking Channel Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
