EMERIL’s new Kicked-Up Sandwiches Cookbook Rocks!
You all know how much I absolutely adore Emeril Lagasse. I can still remember the first time I watched Essence of Emeril, I had to watch it because my mother said so. You see, it’s a Portuguese thing. When my mother first discovered Emeril and realized he was Portuguese, you would have thought they were related. He’s a Portuguese Chef and he’s on TV. Seriously, that was enough, the fact that he was Portuguese meant that we just had to love him. Portugal is such a tiny country and if you are an immigrant, you learn at a very young age that you are to support anyone who is Portuguese. Let me tell you, the Portuguese have each others backs unconditionally.
After watching the first couple of episodes, I too fell in love with Emeril and loved hearing his stories about his Portuguese mother, Hilda. I found myself trying his recipes and practicing my BAM’s! Imagine how excited I was when I was received an email from Morrow Cookbooks asking me to participate in Emeril Lagasse’s Serious Sandwich Cookalong! I couldn’t wait to take a peek at Emeril’s Kicked-up Sandwiches Cookbook before it is even came out. I don’t know who was more excited me, my mother or Reis.
Reis and I have had so much fun going through this cookbook and picking out our favorites to share with all of you. We hit the grocery store and ran to the kitchen to start creating amazing sandwiches from Emeril’s Kicked-up Sandwiches Cookbook.
The first sandwich I got to choose. Since I am crazy about Salmon, I couldn’t wait to try the Smoked Salmon Bagel with Mascarpone Cheese. All I can tell you is….BAM! This Sandwich Rocks! The mascarpone takes this sandwich over the top. Adding a little lemon zest to the mascarpone cheese created a wonderful surprise when you bite into it. This sandwich gets a perfect 10 from me! The next one coming up was chosen by Reis and it is just as good if not better.
Do I have you excited to try this cookbook? Here’s the best part, I am giving away a copy to one of my followers. All you have to do is tell me your favorite Emeril Legasse recipe in the comments below and BAM! I get to choose a favorite as my winner.
