Emeril Lagasse GF Cooking Videos

In case you missed it, the famous TV chef Emeril Lagasse (who my mom adores) put on an all gluten-free episode. Follow the link to watch his videos on how to make gluten-free New Orleans fare. Recipes include stuffed chicken, cornbread, stewed tomatoes and okra, and pecan pie. It all sounds delicious, but when I checked out his recipes, I realized that people with celiac disease should be careful of some if his ingredients. For example, his stuffed chicken recipe calls for “amber beer.” As we all know, beer has to be specifically gluten-free to be safe, and because most GF beer is made with sorghum, it tends to be sweeter than non-gluten-free beer. In the same recipe Emeril also calls for “Creole seasoning,” and “Louisiana hot sauce,” neither of which is certain to be gluten-free. If you’re wondering which brands are safe, you can find gluten-free ingredients in our grocery guide. Emeril does, however, helpfully specify a gluten-free brand of Worcestershire sauce.

  1. I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE HOW CAN I MAKE GLUTEN FREE CORNBREAD.I DONT LIKE THE MIXES.WHERE CAN I FIND GLUTEN FREE CORN MEAL?THANKS

  2. Hi Clara,
    In Atlanta we have a brand of gluten-free corn meal called Dixie Lily. They do have a version that is not gluten-free which clearly lists wheat on the label. Most stores sell at least one plain corn meal brand. You can find recipes for cornbread on http://www.recipezaar.com that do not call for flour to be added. I love the new Pamela’s cornbread mix because it taste like Jiffy brand which is what we used when I ate gluten. Good luck!
