With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I think it's appropriate that this weekend's episode of Emeril's Florida takes place in a fun Central Florida city called Kissimmee (sounds like "kiss-eh-me").
From sensuous sushi at Zen, to comfort foods at Chef John's Place and socializing in a neighborhood called Harmony, there will be plenty of foods showcased that'll make you want to pucker up.
And if the dishes alone aren't enough to make your heart pitter-patter, the episode wraps up with some true Florida cowboys at the Kempfer Cattle Company and Silver Spurs Rodeo.
Be sure to tune in! Set your DVR to see this season's fifth episode:
