MACY’S RETURNS: Emeril Lagasse and Martha Stewart shared cooking duties last weekend as they helped Macy’s, where both sell products, open two stores in the New Orleans area. Lagasse whipped up corn chowder and Stewart focused on a vat of shrimp — tossing in some Cajun spices. Tommy Hilfiger also flew in for the occasion. Terry Lundgren, Macy Inc.’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, used the event to acknowledge the hardship endured by the city after Hurricane Katrina. The Macy’s at Esplanade Mall underwent a top-to-bottom renovation, and the retailer opened at Lakeside Shopping Center, replacing its space in a downtown New Orleans shopping mall that remains closed.

“No one has seen more pain and adversity than this American city,” Lundgren said. “I think the people here are a great example of how to get through difficult times. Three years ago we promised we’d be back and here we are — back with a vengeance with two new stores.”

The Macy’s event drew 750 guests and raised $250,000 for the city’s performing arts high school.
