Thoughts by Emeril Lagasse:
A lot of parents ask me how to get kids to eat more vegetables. The first thing I say is that it starts from the top.
Anything made with love, bam! -it’s a beautiful meal.
Food that’s beautiful to look at seems to taste better than food that isn’t.
I love to cook; that’s my passion.
Food is very representative of a city’s culture. In order to really get to know a place and the people, you’ve got to eat the food.
If you don’t follow your dream, who will?
It’s okay to play with your food.
Life just doesn’t hand you things. You have to get out there and make things happen. that’s the exciting part.
I had a fierce curiosity about this food thing.
If you think small, you’re going to be small.
I think you’ve got to keep it simple, keep it fresh. Stay away from all that processed stuff, read the labels.
If kids can learn how to make a simple Bolognese sauce, they will never go hungry. It’s pretty easy to cook pasta, but a good sauce is way more useful.
