Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Cooking.com is “kicking it up a notch” through a new channel partnership with world-class chef, restaurateur, television personality and cookbook author, Chef Emeril Lagasse. The partnership kicks-off with the launch of the Emeril Store, which will cater to his loyal fan base with Emeril’s useful kitchenware products. This high-profile relationship further accentuates Cooking.com’s stellar reputation among American culinary icons.
A beloved and prolific figure in the culinary space, Chef Emeril Lagasse is the chef and proprietor of 13 award-winning restaurants, and has hosted more than 2,000 shows on the Food Network including Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril. Most recently, Emeril joined Top Chef Seattle – season 10 of Bravo’s hit food series Top Chef – as the show’s newest chef and restaurateur at the judge’s table. Emeril is also the author of 17 best-selling cookbooks, with the latest, Emeril’s Kicked-Up Sandwiches, out this month. Additionally, a new TV show for the Cooking Channel, Emeril’s Florida, will air in late January 2013.
Cooking.com, which currently manages both its own culinary e-commerce site and uniquely branded online stores for the biggest names in the industry, will manage the e-commerce business of the Emeril brand moving forward. In addition to providing the Emeril Store with a new and improved online look and feel, Cooking.com will handle product fulfillment and will provide a completely integrated program to amplify sales efforts online and improve social accessibility. Consumers will also benefit from a new selection of products that complement Emeril’s existing product lines.
