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 edition of Louisiana Eats! we raise a glass to American Craft Beer Week with brewers, bar owners, and innovators in the microbrewing industry.
We were lucky enough to snag craft beer pioneer Steve Hindy of Brooklyn Brewery for a conversation about the history of craft beer and where it’s going next.
We’ll also visit a local breweries when we speak with William McGee of Tin Roof Brewing Company in Baton Rouge and Kirk Coco at NOLA Brewing Company. And we top it off with a chat at The Avenue Pub with Polly Watts about her predictions for craft brewing in Louisiana.
