Fat Tuesday is next week, and to help you get even fatter, America's preeminent one-named chef just dropped a ton of his favorite Mardi Gras recipes. Emeril's roster of New Orleans-inspired dishes (currently live on Pinterest) covers all the essentials: the man's got jambalaya, muffaletta, gumbo, king cake donuts, and classic NOLA cocktails like the Hurricane. Better pack it all in before Lent, when you make the noble sacrifice to give up kale and multi-vitamins.
