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!
On this week's episode of Louisiana Eats! sommelier Molly Wismeier and mixologist Adam Seger discuss their involvement inside the wine cellar and behind the bar of Restaurant R'evolution.
Then, documentarian Ken Burns talks about the era of Prohibition in American history.
We'll also take a quick juant to Shreveport for a local delicacy and close out the program with instructions from Rita Held about cooking with an essential cocktail ingredient, Angostura bitters.
