Emeril Lagasse Agency Booking Profile
American celebrity chef, restaurateur, television personality, and cookbook author. A regional James Beard Award winner, he is perhaps most notable for his Food Network shows Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril as well as catchphrases such as “Kick it up a notch!” and “Bam!” The “Emeril Empire” of media, products and restaurants generates an estimated US$150 million annually in revenue. Emeril first appeared on television on the show Great Chefs where he was featured on no fewer than ten episodes. After several appearances on several other FoodTV programs, Lagasse hosted his own show, The Essence of Emeril. “Essence” in the title refers to Emeril’s Essence, the name of a spice blend of his own concoction that he frequently uses in his cooking, and which is commercially available in several flavors. He also often suggested that viewers of his show create their own spice blends that reflect their personal tastes and be unafraid to use them to customize the dishes he would teach. Lagasse has been nominated eight times for a Daytime Emmy Award for his Food Network shows without winning. On television, Lagasse is known for his light and jovial hosting style as well as several catchphrases, including “Bam!”, “kick it up a notch,” “aw, yeah, babe” and “feel the love,” usually said before or after adding something spicy to a dish, or after the reaction to adding something, respectively. When frying or making dishes like sausage, Lagasse advocates using genuine lard, boasting, “Pork fat rules!” Please contact SME today to book Keynote Speaker Emeril Lagasse!
