Louisiana Eats: The Call Of The Wild

Feb 20, 2021

Here in Louisiana, we have more than our fair share of delectable heritage foods. Many of them are harvested from the wild. On this week's show, we go Down on the Batture with Tulane University

environmental professor Oliver Houck. He explains the ecology of this small sliver of land, the bounty of foodstuffs found there, and the opportunities it provides for fringe living.


On this week's Louisiana Eats! we speak with Taylor Mathis about his escapades around the Southeast in search of the best tailgate parties on College Game Day. We'll also hear from Bill Heavey, who spent a year eating foraged food and writing about it in his new book It's Only Slow Food Until You Try to Eat It.
