Listen up, boys and girls, this is important stuff here. Our boy, Emeril Lagasse, is coming back into our living rooms, dining rooms, dens, and wherever else we have televisions to transport his smiling face into our world.
The Fine Living Network (which I was a huge fan of before, but now….off the charts) will begin showing the Emeril Live show 7 days a week @ 7pm starting July 7th.
FLN has set up a page for Emeril Live which includes Emeril’s own recipes, a blog by his culinary crew, a show schedule and some great facts about Emeril, including the origin of the “BAM!” See http://www.fineliving.com/emerillive
The page also has some videos that’ll slap a smile on your face.
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Emeril is to thank for the explosion of food celebrities, the excitement of cooking shows, and the vast number of young people who think it’s totally “cool” to watch cooking shows. I always marvel at the number of my daughter’s friends (male and female – which I love to see) who know the television chefs by name. Emeril is always one of their favorites.
Personally, I think Emeril built the whole Food Network empire. He was the one that the rest were built around. Of course, to be sure – it was a two-way street, each made the other huge!
Check out the page and be sure to invite Emeril back into your home. Nightly.
Long live the Bam!
