Chef Emeril himself reveals that the new designs are very innovative. “It’s a very exciting time for my brand as we have been working hard to develop products for the everyday home chef” says Emeril. “I can’t wait to showcase the new look and I’m looking forward to working with our partners in the years to come.”
