Join us at NOCCA on Tuesday, March 22 as Chef Emeril Lagasse marks the launch of the Culinary Arts program at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts!
The celebration begins as Chef Emeril unveils the new home of NOCCA’s Culinary Arts program, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Culinary Arts Studio, at a private ceremony. Members of the public will then join Chef Lagasse and invited guests for a champagne reception catered by Joel’s Grand Cuisine, and an “Inside the Chef’s Studio” interview with Chef Lagasse, moderated by American Routes’ Dr. Nick Spitzer. This reception and interview kick off several weeks of celebration that we’re calling ART OF THE FEAST, all in honor of this one-of-a-kind culinary program for high school students.

NOCCA’s Culinary Arts program launches in August 2011. Developed in collaboration with the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the program will offer young artists the opportunity to study with leading master chefs. The program has also been supported by Johnson & Wales University, which has written the first-of-its-kind, four-year Culinary Arts curriculum for high school students.
Lead support for the Culinary Arts program has been provided by Emeril Lagasse Foundation, with generous additional support from Macy’s, Gustaf W. McIlhenny Family Foundation, Selley Foundation, Galatoire’s Foundation, and New Orleans Wine and Food Experience.
