In February, Martha Stewart and Emeril Lagasse cooked up a business deal. On Friday, the two will cook — really cook — together for the first time in New Orleans.
At a gala to benefit the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, they will prepare a recipe from her new book, “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School.” The gala is being held in conjunction with the opening of two Macy’s stores here, at Lakeside Shopping Center and at The Esplanade. And Stewart and Lagasse are just two of the mega-watt stars of the culinary world coming to town for this weekend’s festivities.
