Lagasse has cooked up quite a storm of food for the out-of-spacers.Â They will be enjoying haute cuisine right out of New Orleans- freeze-dried, packed &Â launched into space.
The menu?Â Mardi Gras Jambalaya, mashed potatoes with bacon, green beans with garlic, rice pudding, & mixed fruit.Â The shipment will be sampled by the astronauts August 10 while Emeril chats with them via satellite.
Lagasse is the first celebrity chef to develop recipes to be served outside the planet Earth.
“This is a tremendous honor,” Lagasse said.
Here’s hoping it tastes half as well as it does here!
