Author Notes

Emeril John Lagasse was born October 15, 1959 in Fall River, Massachusetts. He worked in a Portuguese bakery as a teenager where he discovered his talent for cooking and subsequently enrolled in a culinary arts program at Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School. He went on to attend Johnson & Wales University in hopes of becoming a chef. He graduated from Johnson and Wales in 1978 and the school later awarded him an honorary doctorate.

In 1982, Lagasse succeeded Paul Prudhomme as Commander's Palace's executive chef. Lagasse initially gained fame in the culinary world as executive chef of Commander's Palace. After leaving Commander's, he opened his first restaurant, Emeril's, in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1990. It was designated Restaurant of the Year in Esquire magazine of that year. Lagasse is mainly known for his emphasis on Creole and Cajun cooking styles. After several appearances on several other FoodTV programs, Lagasse hosted his own show, The Essence of Emeril. Essence in the title refers to Emeril's Essence, the name of a spice blend of his own concoction that he frequently uses in his cooking. Some of his cookbooks include: Emeril at the Grill: A Grilling Book for all Seasons, Farm to Fork Cooking Local, Cooking Fresh, and Kicked-up Sandwiches: Stacked with Flavor.

Publisher's Weekly Review

New hardcover books involve readers in a variety of topics. The king of "kick it up a notch" is back with Emeril's There's a Chef in My Family! Let's Get Everybody Cooking by Emeril Lagasse, illus. by Charles Yuen, photos by Quentin Bacon. This companion to Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup dishes up 76 kid-friendly recipes for every course or occasion, from starters such as Tortellini in Brodo to finishing touches like Lemon Icebox Pie. Yuen's cartoonish depictions of the victuals (alongside photos of the chef or appreciative diners) ensure that no egos will be crushed if readers' results end up looking less-than-professional.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-Emeril's many fans will eat this up. The introduction emphasizes the fun and learning involved in cooking together as a family. The use of fresh ingredients is definitely a plus, but many of the recipes are quite complicated, making this a good book for children and adults to use together. Front matter (the first 25 pages) covers equipment, safety tips, basic skills and terms, and measurements. Seventy-six recipes follow, logically arranged to begin with breakfast and continue through dessert. The step-by-step directions are clearly laid out, and most of the dishes look delicious. The fresh and attractive design includes a mix of simple paintings (for the food) and photos (for the people). Emeril himself is shown throughout, conveying his enthusiasm and sense of play and offering a familiar note for media-savvy cooks. Nutritional information is not included, which may be a good thing, since many of the recipes are sinfully caloric (the hot chocolate recipe calls for whole milk and heavy cream and chocolate chips). For this reason, many of the dishes will be better suited for special occasions than for everyday enjoyment.-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
