Did you know that Emeril Lagasse almost became a musician?
“I ended up turning down a full scholarship of music at the conservatory to pay to go to cooking school,” he said. “If you don’t follow your dream, who will?”
He still loves music, though. “Music is one of those things that is constantly going in my head all the time. It’s sort of like the evolution and creation of doing food, or my philosophy about wine. It’s always beating in my head, so it keeps the spirit moving.”
