Emeril Lagasse is Carnival Cruise Lines’ New Chief Culinary Officer
Bam! Carnival Cruise Line announced today that chef and restauranteur Emeril Lagasse will serve as its Chief Culinary Officer.
A restaurant concept created by Lagasse, Emeril’s Bistro, is already popular on two of Carnival’s most innovative ships, Mardi Gras and Carnival Celebration, and now the famous chef’s talents will be utilized across the whole fleet. In conjunction with this announcement, Carnival also announced that Carnival Jubilee will also feature an Emeril’s Bistro when it arrives in Galveston, Tex. in December 2023.
As Chief Culinary Officer, Lagasse will support Carnival’s chefs with guidance on food trends and techniques as well as advise on future menu items and dining concepts. Guests will also see his input on the menus of main dining rooms fleetwide, including entrées designated as “Emeril recommends” picks.
Lagasse is a James Beard Award winner, known for his mastery of Creole and Cajun cuisine and one of New Orleans’ most respected chefs. In addition to his acclaimed restaurants across the country, he has been welcomed into homes nationwide for decades through his popular cookbooks and television cooking shows, including his current show “Emeril Cooks,” which debuted on Roku earlier this year.
