Bam! Lagasse's Food Blasts Into Orbit
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.
We may still be waiting for decent airline food. But for those in outer space, the wait is over. The crew on the international space station was served a feast, yesterday, from TV-chef Emeril Lagasse. Dishes included Mardi Gras Jambalaya, and mashed potatoes with bacon. NASA plans to adapt five of Lagasse's recipes for space dining. The chef had a video hook-up to ask astronauts how he could improve his recipes. Astronauts sent their compliments to the chef.
