Cook the Book: Roasted Beet Salad with Walnut Dressing and Cheese Crisps

Once I brought the beets and chard home I turned to the pages of Farm to Fork by Emeril Lagasse for a bit of inspiration. And what I found was this Roasted Beet Salad with Walnut Dressing and Cheese Crisps. Roasted beets? Yes, please. But raw chard? I had never used it in its raw state but the young chard that I brought home had much thinner, softer leaves that seemed like they would work beautifully in a salad. More

Cook the Book: Tomato, Zucchini, and Leek Galette with Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese

It's a gorgeous and simple dish that lets the true character of the ingredients come through with all of its summery goodness. More

Cook the Book: Spicy Tomato Jam

The tomatoes would be way past their prime by the time I returned Sunday night. As I sat pondering their fate, I flipped through the pages of Farm to Fork by Emeril Lagasse and came up with an ideal solution: this quick Spicy Tomato Jam. More

Emeril Lagasse's Grilling Tips

"I used to be one of those macho guys that cranked the grill up to bejesus." Photographs by Maro Hagopian This week’s grilling tips come from celebrity chef icon, Emeril Lagasse.

'Top Chef' Season 5, Episode 13: Mardi Gras in N'Awlins with Emeril Lagasse

Tonight, we moved from New York to New Orleans, nicely timed with next week's Mardi Gras. This involved some of the tastiest, heartiest food ever filmed this season. Granted, there wasn't a lot of background New Orleans action—no music (except for a little brass), and no signs of Katrina or post-Katrina struggles, but I guess this wasn't a documentary. Emeril Lagasse was the guest judge, and like Eric Ripert, he was full of positive energy. As the crawfish king, he could have been patronizing in the Creole cuisine department, but he was quite the opposite. ("Home run dish"..."I loved his gumbo"..."This one captured the spirit of New Orleans.") And whoa, did he even say Bam! once? [Warning: Spoilers ahead.]... More

Submitted catchphrases include: "Aiee, chihuahaha," "Boo-yah," and "Owwwa." They're getting pretty desperate. Watch Emeril flex Bam! in the Crest campaign, after the jump.... More
