What We’re Loving: Emeril Lagasse’s TastingRoom.com Collection

Hosting a dinner party? Have the celebrity chef choose the wine and pair the right dishes to go with it
Jane Bruce

Cooking for a group of friends can be quite a project, so you shouldn’t have to bother with the added headache of choosing the wine list as well — leave that to the professionals.

It doesn’t get more professional than celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. In a new addition to their celebrity chef wine series, TastingRoom.com has debuted two new sampler collections from the famous face who has built an "Emeril Empire" from his life as a chef, restaurateur, and author. 

The two collections, Emeril’s Holiday Party Sampler and Emeril’s Everyday Sampler, include Lagasse's favorite wines from around the country, his suggested wine and food pairings for every meal, and customized tasting notes. Lagasse has personally selected each wine in the collection, allowing you to taste and sample his favorites.

The holiday sampler will prep you for pairings from Thanksgiving to New Year’s and every special event in between. As for the everyday sampler, that will come in handy for those hours-long catch-up dinners with friends and family or just when finding a wine to pair with a weeknight meal.

With selections spanning from coast to coast, prepare to be wowed by everything from a 2010 Decoy Winery Sonoma County Merlot that should be paired with a meaty blue cheese-stuffed burger to a 2010 Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Chardonnay that will beautifully accompany a dish of oysters and linguine with clams.
