On Louisiana Eats! NOLA food icon Poppy Tooker takes us into Louisiana's wide open fields, deep waters, bustling markets, and busy kitchens. Poppy's people are carrying on the traditions of Louisiana's wholly local but universally celebrated food, from farm to table, and sometimes barroom! Poppy roams the State to find the folks whose inspiration and innovation are taking the abundant wealth of Louisiana's food culture into the future. Let's eat!
As 2013 comes to an end we're looking back at some of our favorite interviews from the past year on Louisiana Eats!. We spoke with the team from Bayou Teche Brewingduring Carnival season to find out what they'd been brewing for the holiday and how they celebrate Mardi Gras Day in Acadiana. And as the festival season continued, we hung out with Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes to find out what fuels them in the studio and on the road.
But it wasn't all fun and games this past year. We also spoke with many business leaders in the Louisiana food community to find out how they are expanding the local industry. Tess Mongahan dropped by to discuss a new business in New Orleans and Drew Ramsey joined us to talk about rebuilding a longstanding favorite in Louisiana.
