Emeril John Lagasse (born October 15, 1959) is an American celebrity chef, restaurateur, television personality, and cookbook author. A regional James Beard Award winner, he is perhaps most notable for his Food Network shows Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril as well as catch phrases such as “Kick it up a notch!” and “BAM!”.

He appears in "The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire" at The Drunken Clam to overemphasize the onomatopoeia for sex by using his catchphrase.
