I am so excited about this #SundaySupper. This week we are celebrating New Year’s with Potluck and Sandwich Recipes by Emeril Lagasse. Emeril is one of those chefs that’s so fun to follow because his passion for food is so expressive and contagious. His belief that food should be full of flavour makes him a chef after my own heart. Some of us at #SundaySupper were given the fanatic opportunity to review one of two books, Emeril’s Potluck and Emeril’s Kicked-up Sandwiches. I would have been happy to review either but I was so excited to see that I was sent the potluck book. What I love about his style of cooking is that he knows how to “Kick it up a notch” as he likes to say. In my opinion the key to good cooking is all in the seasoning. If someone ever has to add salt or any seasoning to my food then I failed. And with Emeril’s recipes I am never disappointed. We have already tried two different recipes from Emeril’s Potluck and I am excited to continue to make my way through it. Hubby was especially interested when he came across a recipe for a Creole Bread Pudding.
And if you want to win your own copy of one of Emeril’s cookbooks then come and join us for our Twitter chat at 7pm EST. The publisher is giving us the opportunity to give away one of the cook books to one of our followers. All you have to do is start following me on twitter, @wallet_appetite and join us tonight, December 30, 2012 on Twitter at 7pm EST for our #SundaySupper chat. Then at sometime during the hour, post: “Enter Me @wallet_appetite #SundaySupper” and one of the participants that posts that, will win a copy of one of these cookbooks!
Emeril’s recipe that I am sharing with you is one that is going to making its way to my New Years Eve Party this year. A simple nut dish that is so addictive it is perfect for any party.
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 cups unsalted mixed nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and almonds
4 Tbps unsalted butter
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
