"EMERIL GREEN (wt) joins two greats in the world of cuisine. With his dynamic and entertaining style, Emeril has inspired millions of people to experience the joy of food and cooking. Whole Foods Market has been a leader in making organic and sustainably produced food a part of our daily lives," said O'Neill. "Together, they are the winning ingredients for an innovative series that will redefine food shows for the new green culture."

With an increased focus on organic and locally grown foods, many Americans are often confused -- sometimes even intimidated -- about how to cook healthy meals for their families. In EMERIL GREEN (wt), Lagasse shares how the best meals start with high quality produce, seafood and meats, and helps families get inspired by using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Shot on location at Whole Foods Market, Lagasse works with everyday cooks with real culinary challenges, enlisting the help of the knowledgeable team at Whole Foods Market and other experts to hand pick the best ingredients for every recipe, turning ordinary meals into extraordinary experiences. Faced with questions about quality, cost, taste and even some daunting food dares, Lagasse helps viewers conquer their culinary fears with an open mind and a healthy curiosity.

"Since my early days as a chef, I've always been passionate about using the freshest quality ingredients from farmers, fisherman and ranchers," says Emeril Lagasse. "I try a little harder every day to think greener and be respectful of our environment and our resources. On 'Emeril Green' we'll unearth how easy and fun it is to cook with what's fresh, tasty and in-season and find smart ways to make each day a little greener for you and your family."

Lagasse began his career working in a Portuguese bakery in Fall River, Massachusetts, attending Johnson and Wales University's famous culinary program. After graduation, he studied the classic cuisine of France and then found himself in New Orleans after stints in New York and Boston, where he became famous for his love of the freshest products. Lagasse is now the chef/proprietor of 11 restaurants across the country. Lagasse has remained devoted as ever to using fresh, top-quality ingredients and employs cottage industry ranchers, farmers and fishermen to ensure that he always gets the best. He constantly invents new recipes, much to the delight of his regular guests and the fans of his Food Network specials and shows Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril.

EMERIL GREEN (wt) is produced in association with Discovery Studios. Chris Weber is producer for Discovery Studios.
