Emeril tries fusion cuisine with Martha, Rupert
Rupert Murdoch’s children have the perfect gift to give to Dad come Father’s Day next year: a book on indoor and outdoor grilling by celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse that will come out on May 12, 2009. It’s the first entry in a 10-book project that Lagasse — now a member of the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia franchise — prepared for HarperStudio, an imprint of book publisher and News Corp subsidiary HarperCollins.
HarperStudio will promote the book and his other titles written for HarperCollins with video, photography and blogs at its own website, as well as emerils.com, while Martha Stewart Living will market the books on its website and in its magazines, television and radio shows.
Among the recipes, according to the press release: Emeril’s Delmonico Bone-in Rib Steaks, Northern Italian Style Chicken Under a Brick, Grilled Pork Chops with Mixed Herb Chimichurri and Grilled Banana Splits.
Not in the press release: the financial arrangements of the deal. Then again, the best restaurants don’t need to put their prices on the menu.
