Jilly Lagasse‘s passion for food was apparent from a very early age. Recognizing her natural talent in the kitchen, her father gifted her with a set of Chef’s Whites and allowed her to start helping in the Pastry and Dessert Department in one of his restaurants. This led to her assisting him on book tours and cooking events, and even working alongside him on his Emeril’s Creole Christmas cookbook. Jilly currently lives in New Orleans and travels back to London every chance she can. An apron is always packed and on hand for cooking in anyone’s kitchen she can along the way.
