Emeril's Florida

Hosted by Emeril Lagasse

Farm to Table

Emeril focuses on the "Farm to Table" movement in Florida. His first stop is at "The Floridian" in downtown St. Augustine. There, the owners are working hard to be as farm-to-table as possible. The chef has a farming background and actually ran a farmers market prior to opening the restaurant and tries to use those experiences to help stay true to the restaurant's philosophy. Next, Emeril travels to Boca Raton to a restaurant big on local sourcing and securing most ingredients from local fisherman and farmers. Then Emeril heads to Miami where he visits an urban farm located right near Miami International Airport. The farm mostly grows herbs and also serves as a place city-based school children can come to learn about where their food comes from. Emeril finishes the episode by preparing a farm to table dish of his own, Lettuce Wraps with Tuna, Ponzu, Jalapeno and Sriracha. (Episode: CCEMF309H)
