We received word this morning that Emeril's appearance at the Dr. Phillips Center, originally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 1, has been moved to April 21, 2016. So you'll have to wait a few months to hear Emeril say "BAM!" and talk cooking with John Rivers. Here's our preview of what could have been.

Internationally known chef Emeril Lagasse and his favorite interjection (“BAM!” for those unaware of celebrity chef catchphrases) come to the Dr. Phillips Center this week. For a hefty price, you can buy a ticket to the Walt Disney Theater to see Lagasse answer questions, sign books and cook one of his favorite dishes (hopefully Creole-inspired). Also hosting the night to talk barbecue will be John Rivers, owner of 4 Rivers Smokehouse and the Coop. The Dr. Phillips Center partnered with Publix to feature Lagasse and two other kitchen legends, so if you miss this chef, keep an eye out for Ina Garten and Guy Fieri next year.

8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1 | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $59.50-$99.50
