"It's great that he is shining a spotlight on 30A with this show. The more foodies who see this area on TV, the more exposure, and the more people who will come here and to our restaurants," said Rauschkolb, who said he will be watching the show's premier.

Seaside Neighborhood School Principal Cathy Brubaker is another who will be watching on Sunday.

"Emeril and his film crew came to the school last April and did a cooking demo and tour of our school's edible garden. He filmed students working in the garden and he talked to them about it. He also talked to me about the idea for the garden, how it is implemented into the curriculum, about the school in general and the idea for the charter school and how it performs statewide," said Brubaker.

Brubaker said the school promotes healthy eating and uses produce from the garden to teach kids about fresh veggies.

"He's really big into it in New Orleans and has an edible garden there. It's a real hot button for him," she said.

Brubaker found the famed chef to be very engaging, friendly, and personable.

"He seemed to enjoy talking to the kids," she said.
