Honolulu, Hawaii – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Fresh off of last June’s Kahala Food & Wine Classic, chef Emeril Lagasse returns this spring for another soon-to-be-sold-out Kahala foodie extravaganza. The Kahala Hotel & Resort welcomes back the beloved star-chef of New Orleans cuisine, and will also feature wine selections from the award winning Schrader Cellars and cigars from Davidoff.

Chef Lagasse is the chef/proprietor of thirteen award-winning restaurants, including three in New Orleans (Emeril’s, NOLA and Emeril’s Delmonico). He is a national TV personality and best-selling author of 14 cookbooks, including Emeril’s New New Orleans Cooking, which introduced the world to his creative take on Creole cuisine, and his latest book, Emeril 20-40-60: Fresh Food Fast. His new, hour-long primetime television series “The Emeril Lagasse Show” will debut on March 28 on ION Television. He was the featured chef at the last Kahala Food & Wine Classic in June 2009.
