See "Jambalaya Jones" in Action on July 14, 2008

Last month our own Mike Forgy was given a fantastic opportunity to be a part of new cooking show on Discovery Network's newest channel, Planet Green (channel 286 on DirecTv, check your local listings for availability and order it quick!). For more information on the channel, please visit

The concept of the show is celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse shows viewers how to "cook green" using locally grown produce and products. The show was filmed about a mile from his house at a Whole Foods store and was done over two days of shooting. The first day was spent in his house and "on location" at the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy. Day two was spent at the Whole Foods store where Emeril and Mike shopped, cooked and eventually ate the items they prepared. Special thanks goes out to the Fairfax County CERT members who assisted on both days.

The New Orleans inspired menu includes Oysters Bienville, Jambalaya, Beignets, and Café Brulot.

So, please mark your calendars for the inaugural night of Emeril Green! The show will be on at 10:00 pm (est) on July 14, 2008. This is the series' kickoff night and there are five shows being aired that night with Mike's appearing next to last. Mike's episode is entitled "Jambalaya Jones."
