Emeril Lagasse returns to his favorite old haunts in his hometown, New Orleans. First on his tour of big tastes in the Big Easy is the very first Po boy shop in the uptown New Orleans area, Domilise. He'll sample their famous fried shrimp and roast beef sandwiches and pitch in behind the counter during the lunch rush. Then it's off to Angelo Brocato's Italian Ice Cream Parlor in Mid-town, for a trip back in time. He'll meet the third and fifth generations of confection makers and learn exactly what goes into their famous cannolis and famous ices. Finally, it's homecoming time for Emeril as he revisits the restaurant where he rose to prominence, the Commander's Palace in the Garden District. He'll check out their remodeling efforts for the first time and learn a few new tricks in their kitchen when he helps make their signature Turtle soup.
