'Emeril's Florida' to Highlight St. Pete on Sunday

Sunday morning's episode of the Cooking Channel TV show will feature chef Emeril Lagasse visiting St. Petersburg's Cassis American Brasserie, the Dali Museum and other local destinations.

St. Petersburg will be in the national spotlight Sunday morning when an episode of "Emeril's Florida" will feature celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse visiting local destinations.

Emeril came to town for three days to film the show last month and made stops at Cassis American Brasserie, the Dali Museum and other St. Pete locations.

"I think we're really undervalued and underestimated about our cuisine here in Florida ... we have great food, we have great chefs, a lot of talent," Lagasse recently told WTSP 10 News. "It's not just Miami, it's all over the state, that makes me happy." Lagasse recently moved to Florida's panhandle, WTSP reports.

Sunday's episode, which airs on the Cooking Channel, also spotlights Clearwater and the area's culinary scene.

The new show, which debuted in January, presents food, cooking, events and activities around the Sunshine State, as well as Emeril preparing his favorite recipes.

The Pinellas County Convention and Visitor's Bureau is also using part of due to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill for another episode of "Emeril's Florida" that will highlight the Gulf's seafood.
