Searching for Emeril Lagasse…

I am a little bit embarrassed.

I did not know who Emeril was.

You don’t know him…?


Emeril John Lagasse (born October 15, 1959) is an American celebrity chef, restaurateur, television personality, and cookbook author. A regional James Beard Award winner, he is perhaps most notable for his Food Network shows Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril as well as catchphrases such as “Kick it up a notch!” and “BAM!”

He is a 1978 graduate of Johnson & Wales University’s College of Culinary Arts. The “Emeril Empire” of media, products and restaurants generates an estimated US$150 million annually in revenue.

    • All the Lagacés… Lagasses… LeGasses… are.

      Emeril is an 8th cousin. The worst thing is that he does not even no this.

      I should write him about him… He will go crazy!

    • On a more serious note…

      I don’t mind people who look for famous relatives, but they are missing a whole lot of famous people in my book, like the man in the white hat and the big mustache…

      My great-grandfather who has now a new lease on life since 2010 thanks to Dennis Lagasse IV who shared all his old pictures.

    • About my Scorpio rising…

      That’s a story related to Alyce.

      I had found a lot about that family well before I found about my grandfather’s former life with Maria Landry…

    • As I said, reading a few posts a day in sequence will give you the big picture and be surprised by what evolved from post no. 1.

      Two posts a day will bring you to July 2016!

      You will probably be the only person in the world to accomplish that feat!

  2. Can I use one of your pictures to send an illustrated mail to my 130 webwriters ( The subject of our summer writing contest is Family story. Thank you for your answer.
