NEW ORLEANS -- Emeril Lagasse has a new cookbook and new season of TV's "Top Chef" premiering in a week, but what really got the chef talking was boudin and beer.

Lagasse says chefs from across the country are heading to New Orleans this week to serve up some of their favorite dishes using or inspired by boudin -- a pork and rice sausage common in Louisiana cuisine.

Chefs from San Francisco and elsewhere will be joined Friday by more than two dozen chefs from New Orleans for Lagasse's "Boudin and Beer" street party with live music and Louisiana-brewed Abita beer.

The event kicks off a two-day celebration of Louisiana food and culture with all proceeds going to the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the charity the chef founded in 2002.
