FishbowlNY reports this morning that Emeril Lagasse has shouted a final "BAM!" at the Food Network. No more notches will be kicked up after December 11, the last day of production for Emeril Live. First Molto Mario, now Emeril. Is the Food Network putting all of its eggs in Rachael Ray's basket, or will Iron Chef be the channel's secret, all-encompassing ingredient?
