ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A familiar face on WALB is showcasing her southern cooking skills on a new show.
Lara Lyn Carter, from Savor the Good Life, is starring in "Thyme for Sharing with Lara Lyn Carter," which will air on the Georgia Public Broadcasting channel.
"What we're wanting to do is showcase the South through the food. The South cuisine varies all over," said Carter. "I've said this before, but somebody's fried chicken or shrimp and grits in Louisiana is different than in South Carolina or here in Georgia."
This four part series features the Albany native as she explores various Southern locations through the food. Then she comes back to her own kitchen and puts a twist on a favorite dish.
"I love doing it!" she said. "It was so much fun to get to talk to these people, explore all these foods. And the whole time we're there my mind is going tick, tick, tick, what do I want to do when I get home? It's a dream. I'm getting to do what I love."
The show premieres Saturday, June 13th at 3:00PM.
Carter is also launching a line of her own sauces, called Wicker and Wisk. "I'm doing a product line that basically is for two types of people," explained Carter. "Those who like to cook and those who don't. I love to cook and these are original recipes that I've served to my family, my friends. And people will say, will you make me a bottle of that so and so, or that's what I want for Christmas. People like them, so I thought, why not?"
