American Fine Wine Competition Gala Dinner Is Thursday: Here's What Emeril Plans to Cook
|He's ready to kick it up a notch.|
The rest of the meal -- which will not be prepared by Lagasse -- includes a first course of shrimp and ricotta ravioli with roasted tomato, cioppino shellfish broth, and a sourdough rouille crisp; a second course of baby arugula with Zinfandel poached pear with sugared walnuts and blue cheese with grain mustard vinaigrette; and a "tribute to Florida Key lime" dessert with a black-bottom spiky Key lime pie with crystallized candied Key lime and chocolate Key lime truffles. Passed hors d'oeuvres and, of course, lots of American wine -- as in, more than 600 varietals -- also will be served at the event, which runs 6 to 11 p.m. Tickets cost $300 per person.
