Emeril Live Lottery

I really don't have much to report today.

Someone e-mailed me yesterday wondering how to get tickets to a taping of Emeril Live, and luckily--despite no real affiliation with the Food Network--I found the information.

There's a lottery going on until Feb. 26 for the chance to win tickets to a taping of Emeril Live.

Most people know that Emeril Live is not actually live. There's an audience and a band and usually some guests that come up and taste the food.

It has a decidedly "infomercial" quality for some reason, though. I think it's those reaction shots of everyone in the audience "Ooing" and "Ahhing."

Also, doesn't Emeril come out of a bookcase in the beginning???

That is just weird.

I much prefer his other show, The Essence of Emeril, as it's a lot more toned-down. That's just me, though.

It'd still be fun to attend a taping. I just don't know if I'd be able to scream out everytime he added CINNAMON or something crazy like that.

What do you think?

I actually attended an Emeril tasting a couple of years ago. Even if you go in the summertime, be sure to bring a light sweater with you...they air condition the studio like crazy. Plus they make you wait in line forever, then make you sit in a little room forever, and the worse part is...only some people actually get to eat. At least on Rachel Ray's daytime show, everyone gets a snack. And on Paula's Party, everyone gets to sample something at some point or another.

As you can see, I'm still trying to wake up this morning. What I meant to say was "Emeril taping" not "Emeril tasting"

I went there Sep 2005. The taping is exactly 1 hour and non-stop, except at CM. During CM, Emeril's tone become quiet. I was doing "Ooing" and "Ahhing" very naturally. I thought he was a great entertainer!

If you bring some kids, you get more chance to get seat at table.

If you are prettiest you can seat at the Emeril's table and can try every dishes.

And if you are prettier than others, you will appear on screen by yourself for a second or two...

I guess it was the reality of any TV show...
