Lara Lyn Carter is the television host of Savor the Good Life, a show on WALB, the NBC and ABC affiliate for southwest Georgia. As the show’s creator, she maintains its original purpose of showcasing Southern history, locations, and cuisine. Well-known figures have been guests on Carter’s show, which has received an award from the National Association of Broadcasters.
Raised on quintessential Southern cooking, Carter enjoys putting a twist on the classics and is always looking for new local products to incorporate into her meals. A firm believer that a meal isn't complete without the perfect table setting, wine, and conversation, she has brought this mindset to life in her collaborations with coauthor Doc Lawrence for the television series “Tailgating Down South” and her blog, A Classic Southern Cook Shares.
A self-proclaimed native of the Old South, Carter enjoys outdoor events and spending time with her family. Her goal is to spread her passion for classic Southern cooking and its history to others. She lives with her husband, Chris, and their three sons in Albany, Georgia.
