Publisher's Description

"Thinking back on all of the wonderful people I have learned from and the dishes I have made over the years, I knew that I had to get them all down in one place. This book is it."
- Emeril Lagasse

In his most personal cookbook yet, legendary chef Emeril Lagasse presents his favorite recipes, best-kept cooking secrets, and behind-the-scenes stories from his life in the kitchen.

Discover more than 130 iconic dishes - from Praline-Cayenne Bacon and Lemon-Garlic Crusted Cauliflower to Roasted Portuguese Pork Loin With Homemade Pimenta Moida and Emeril's famous Banana Cream Pie - each tested and perfected for today's home cook. More than just a recipe collection, Essential Emeril is a resource you'll turn back to again and again, packed with valuable tips, lessons on technique, and expert advice on everything from stocking your pantry to creating the perfect cheese board. Emeril remains at your elbow throughout, offering step-by-step photo tutorials to ensure flawless, flavorful results.

Anecdotes reveal the inspiration behind each recipe, with cameos from A-list names including Mario Batali, Roy Choi, and Nobu Matsuhira, alongside memories of family, friends, and early influences such as Julia Child and Charlie Trotter.

Gorgeously photographed and imbued with his signature warmth, Essential Emeril is an intimate portrait of the original top chef.
