About This Event
Wilfredo “Will” Avelar serves as chef de cuisine at Meril, Chef Emeril Lagasse’s fourth restaurant in New Orleans. Born in New Orleans, Will spent his childhood in Costa Rica, where his passion for food was cultivated by the many unique flavors and ingredients around him.
With more than 10 years of experience under his belt in Emeril’s restaurants, Will is no stranger to the Lagasse-style of hospitality. From line cook, butcher and saucier at Emeril’s Delmonico, to sous chef at NOLA Restaurant and, most recently, executive sous chef at Emeril’s Delmonico, Avelar has experienced nearly every aspect of back-of-house operations for all three of Emeril’s New Orleans outposts.
