If you like to cook, then watching Emeril is like drinking water. You have to get some every day. From his trade marked "BAM" to his quest to put garlic and hot sauce into everything (kicking it up a notch), Emeril is smart, funny and an excellent teacher.
When he says, "its not rocket science", you believe him. The recipies he produces are excellent and easy to prepare at home, I know I have made several of them.
What makes the show realy work, is that you understand that he is passionate about cooking, and teaching. Emeril has captured the sprit of the past greats and taken cooking shows up another notch!
