Celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse Kicks Off Eighth Annual Lehigh Valley Food & Wine Festival in Pennsylvania
As a silent crowd of about 125 people listened, Lagasse explained that building flavors, such as first browning the bones, was a lot like building a house.
"Without layers, you don't have a strong house," he said.
One of the country's most recognizable chefs, Lagasse wowed the nearly sold-out crowd gathered for his cooking demo Friday, which kicked off the eighth annual Lehigh Valley Food & Wine Festival at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The festival — which showcased cuisine from the region's top restaurants and wine from around the world — ran through Sunday.
