Daisy Martinez to Emeril Show: Too Ethnic?

BlogHer Spotlight

Chef Daisy Martinez was invited to be a guest on an episode of Emeril Legasse's cooking show featuring tamales. And she could bring four friends. Daisy writes about what happened when the producers started questioning her choice of guests:
