Get Emeril Lagasse Created Recipes, Help Feed New Yorkers
Bam! Bam! Emeril Lagasse wants to create a signature meal for you — for a mere $1,000. The shopping channel Gilt City (giltcity.com) is offering you an opportunity to put the celebrity chef to work in crafting a recipe employing his signature style just for your consumption — all for charity.
Proceeds from this item will go to to help the Food Bank for New York City to feed impoverished New Yorkers as well as your good karma. More than three million New Yorkers don’t have enough money to afford daily meals, a number that is expected to rise as the supply of donated food falls to all-time lows.
You’ll get your own three-course menu based on three ingredients of your choosing from your own personal chef for a day. This one, however, is like no other. Lagasse has made quite an empire for himself with various TV cooking shows, 16 best-selling cookbooks and is one of Food & Wine Magazine’s top 25 chefs in the nation. Let the master chef step up your culinary acumen with your own personalized recipe.
“No more boring chicken dishes with veggie and potato sides. Gilt City members looking to spice up their cookbooks can work with star Chef Emeril Lagasse to create a one-of-a-kind, three-course dinner. Simply send him a list of your favorite ingredients—one for an appetizer, one for an entree and one for a dessert—and he’ll incorporate these into a three-course menu that perfectly suits your taste.
