A recent classic goes digital.
It’s 2012. If you haven’t heard of Emeril Lagasse, there’s a better than average chance that you’ve been living in some kind of alternate reality or are from another planet. Emeril is everywhere. I think it’s fair to say that he probably doesn’t need me plugging his latest cookbook release to put him over the hump. So why the post?
On February 28th, William Morrow is releasing in digital form, what I consider to be one of his best cookbook efforts. From Emeril’s Kitchens: Favorite Recipes from Emeril’s Restaurants, highlights, as you would expect, some of the best-loved recipes from his namesake places. It’s hard to imagine that the hardcover version is almost ten years old. But it is.
My first experience at an Emeril restaurant was at his place in Orlando. It was a family outing, which is fitting for Orlando. My son was in middle school at the time and was just starting to get into food. He ordered a duck dish stuff with Andouille sausage. It was over the top delicious. He talked about it for weeks afterward. It didn’t end change his career path, if one even has one in the 6th grade. But, his love of great food was ignited and continues to this day.
A digital edition of this book should be great addition to the huge, hulking pile of Emeril offerings. I’m beginning to really warm up to my iPad in the kitchen. Having a digital version of Emeril’s Kitchens right at my fingertips may inspire me to break out my cast iron a little more often. Did I hear someone say gumbo?
