Mardi Gras is here, the perfect time to indulge in a decadent dessert. And what better way to celebrate than with a New Orleans favorite? Louisiana chef, Emeril Lagasse, makes it easy to enjoy a sweet and airy slice of Banana Cream Pie on this National Cream Pie Day by sharing his personal recipes. Three different versions are available on Emeril's website to try, but if you don't feel like cooking, you can have the professionals prepare one for you at Emeril's Orlando at Universal's CityWalk or Emeril's Tchoup Chop at Loew's Pacific near the Universal Orlando Resort. The Banana Cream Pie has been a guest favorite at Emeril's restaurants since the beginning. Each slice averages about 10 ounces, uses approximately 9 bananas and 6 layers of pastry cream, and guests at Emeril's indulged in 47,760 slices throughout 2013.
While at either of Emeril's extraordinary restaurants, compliment your slice of pie with Emeril's signature Mardi Gras cocktails, including the King Cake Martini available at Emeril's Orlando or New Orlean's most famous cocktail, the Hurricane, available at Emeril's Tchoup Chop. Fat Tuesday is March 4, so get the party going at Emeril's with these spirited cocktail specials.
