Instead of the usual recipe cover shot, readers of the July/August issue will see a picture of Emeril Lagasse and Stewart, marking the first time in the magazine's five years that people, not food, have graced the cover.
The move marks a further development in the relationship between Lagasse and Stewart, whose company in February bought the rights to Lagasse's franchise of cookbooks, television shows and kitchen products from him.
Lagasse will be a regular columnist in Everyday Food. His "Kick It Up - Everyday with Emeril" column will focus on easy, innovative recipes. His first column includes recipes for ribs, macaroni salad and Caribbean chicken.
