Can you smell what the Discovery Channel is cooking? Adding a new element to their already large array of eco-shows for the upcoming Planet Green network, executives announced this morning that Emeril Lagasse will host a new cooking show called Emeril Green. Prepare yourself for an arsenal of “Bam!” “Shazaam!” “Booya!” and other annoying phrases. From the article,
“Emeril Green will be shot entirely on location in Whole Foods Market stores around the country. “I try a little harder every day to think greener and be respectful of our environment and our resources,” Lagasse said.”
Regardless of how you feel about Emeril, it’s about time we had more cooking shows focused directly on some cool, green meals. I wonder whether he’ll go all out with only vegetarian dishes or go more general to appeal to the masses? I’ll also be curious to see whether the methods of cooking green will be discussed — from energy-efficient appliances to alternatives like solar ovens.
Get that tofu steaming and your apron ready! Emeril Green will debut this July.
