Bam! Chef Emeril Lagasse serves up new recipes at the Mall at Millenia



You might have seen him on TV shows like Bravo’s Top Chef and Cooking Channel’s Fresh Food Fast, or dishing up his Cajun-inspired fare on Food Network.

Next week, Chef Emeril Lagasse (chef/proprietor of Orlando-based restaurants Emeril’s Orlando and Tchoup Chop, among 11 others across the nation) stops by the Macy’s store in Mall at Millenia for a live cooking demo. On Thursday, Oct. 25 at 4 p.m., Lagasse will set up a makeshift kitchen in the home department of the Macy’s store and prepare recipes from his latest cookbook, Emeril’s Kicked-Up Sandwiches: Stacked with Flavor (on sale Oct. 16). Foodie fans can expect Lagasse to serve up sandwiches, ranging from the sweet-and-savory classic Monte Cristo to a kicked-up-a-notch grilled truffle cheese with prosciutto and mushrooms. The first 250 people to make a $75 purchase of Emerilware by All-Clad kitchenware will receive a copy of the cookbook signed in-person by Lagasse. They’re only letting 350 people in for the event, and reservations are required. To RSVP, visit and use the zip code 32839.
