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!
Every holiday has its own of traditions, and New Year's Day is no exception. On this week's Louisiana Eats! we'll hear about a bowl of hoppin' john made with the freshest ingredients, the superstitions behind black-eyed peas, and a roasted cabbage beyond your wildest dreams.
Southern food purveyor John Martin Taylor joins us to talk about reviving traditional foods in South Carolina; Adrian Miller shares more secrets about Soul Food; and Chef John Currence talks about his new book: Pickles, Pigs, and Whiskey. Plus, we'll hear about a collaboration between the Red Stick Farmer's Market and the Star Hill Church in Baton Rouge.
