Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin

Hosted by Jeff Corwin

Louisiana

Jeff Corwin uncovers tantalizing foods on his culinary quest through the Louisiana bayou, starting his journey by scouring the banks of Lake DesAlmond in search of busters, the holy grail of blue crabs. He learns local cooking methods as he prepares a spicy wild boar in a special Cajun microwave and deep fries savory gar balls made from a prehistoric looking fish. He hops on a boat with a sustainable shrimper in Terrebonne Bay to harvest shrimp they fry and eat whole on the water. Then, Jeff canoes down the Pearl River in search of wild rice to use in a goose gumbo. He gets down with the locals at a ragin’ house party with moonshine and a crawfish boil with piles of spicy seafood. (Episode: JX0106H)
