Remember: The bam man kicks it up a notch

The bam man kicks it up a notch

Emeril Lagasse has made headlines in the Lehigh Valley recently by announcing he is going to open a restaurant in the new shiny casino in Bethlehem. Local chefs were questioned by the Morning Call on what impact Mr. Lagasse’s presence was going to have on the dining scene in the Valley. As a matter of fact the arrival of Mr. Lagasse has been trumpeted across the Valley by all media outlets.

I enjoy his ridiculous TV programs and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t at least slightly excited by this news.

The real headlines were made today though. In an interview with the Morning Call, Mr.Lagasse was asked about choosing the Lehigh Valley and the factors that weighed on his decision. Turns out, the bam man liked the local agriculture and intends to use a significant amount of it in his new restaurant. That is some freaking awesome news.

Just a few posts ago I called out my readers and asked them to buy local as much as possible. Mr Lagasse is in. I’m pumped. Bam. Check out that post down there if you haven’t yet. I still would like to organize a meet-up to see Food Inc..

After the restaurant is open for a few weeks I am going to give them a call and see if I can't find out if the bam man lived up to his word.
