Emeril's Kickin' It Up at Everyday Food

Everyday Food, the easy-to-use, digest-size cooking magazine published by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, welcomes guest columnist Emeril Lagasse, the newest member of the Martha Stewart family, in the July/August issue (on newsstands June 23).

Emeril unveils his column -- "Kick It Up - Everyday with Emeril," which features eight pages of grilling ideas perfect for summer barbeques in this issue. To coincide with the premiere column, Martha and Emeril appear on the magazine's cover. Additionally, on Monday, June 16, from 4:00-5:00 p.m., Emeril will join Martha for a special edition of At Martha's Table airing on Martha Stewart Living Radio on SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Channel 112.

"Everyday Food readers are in for a real treat with Emeril's new column. With these fabulous recipes, we should all plan to enjoy a lot of barbeque this summer and look forward to sampling even more of his delicious recipes in the months ahead," stated Martha Stewart, MSLO Founder.

Recipes in Emeril's July/August column include Simple Ribs, Fish Provencal, Caribbean Chicken, Macaroni Salad and Green Bean Salad. In September, Emeril will continue to share original, seasonal meal solutions inspired by his family, his friends, and his travels. Each dish in "Kick It Up" will be fast, easy and delicious with the innovative ingredient combinations that are Emeril's signature.

"I'm very excited about my new column 'Kick It Up' in Everyday Food," said Emeril Lagasse. "In upcoming issues, I'll share my favorite recipes to make cooking at home even more flavorful and fun. The July/August column celebrates summertime with my family's much-loved recipes prepared on the grill. First up: my son's favorite BBQ ribs. Now that's what I call kicking it up!"
