My husband and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the new Emeril Lagassee Show that will begin airing in April on ION TV. It was such a fun experience! Emeril is quite the entertainer – he has as much energy in person as he does on tv. Emeril’s guest star for this episode was Ali Sweeny – aka Sammy on Days of our Lives and the host of the Biggest Loser. She was even more beautiful in person!
The theme for this episode was “Romance” and he made a whole pork belly (doesn’t sound romantic to me!) and a bouillabaisse. He paired the pork belly with picked cucumbers – which he claims are an aphrodisiac. Never would have guessed! They actually looked really delicious – he pickeled them for 24 hours in a mixture of soy and rice vinegar. The bouillabaisse smelled incredible too – he used so many different types of fresh seafood. If only we had a fish monger! I get excited when I can find fresh, wild caught anything! So, I probably won’t be trying this recipe anytime soon.
Look out for us the third week in May – we’re in the front row way on the left!
