Host Poppy Tooker with JoAnn Clevenger

On this week's show, we speak with some powerful and influential women in the food industry who are getting the job done.

We begin with local treasure JoAnn Clevenger, restaurateur behind the Upperline. While she is most famous for her Uptown restaurant, JoAnn has worn many different hats over her lifetime, managing multiple businesses with pluck and determination.
Then, Jill Pratt, the first ever female General Manager of Zatarain’s, tells us stories from behind the scenes at the company, and how she adapted to an entire new food culture in New Orleans.

Finally, Popeyes President and CEO Cheryl Bachelder explains her philosophy of servant leadership in her book, Dare To Serve: How to Drive Superior Results by Serving Others.

We’re speaking with tastemakers and powerful players on this week’s Louisiana Eats!  

Poppy is the host and executive producer of the weekly show, Louisiana Eats! Food personality, culinary teacher and author, Poppy Tooker is passionate about food and the people who bring it to the table.
