Food

Ian McNulty

Café Porche & Snowbar is a small, low key Central City spot with good Creole flavors and a modern feel. People come for breakfast meetings, roll in for brunch or head over from the CBD for lunch. Kids stop by after school for snowballs from a stand built like a pint-sized fairy cottage trimmed in gingerbread and stocked with nectar.

On this week's show, we're celebrating the 4th of July holiday by savoring the remarkable diversity that shapes America's food culture.

A Carla Hall 4th of July

Jul 3, 2020

This week, Francis spends the hour with the irrepressible Carla Hall. Carla is a chef, author of Carla Hall's Soul Food, a judge on Netflix’s new series Crazy Delicious, a motivational speaker, and a restaurateur, but at her very core she is still a cook.

Old family recipes endure in New Orleans, and one has carried on for generations from the old Barrow’s Shady Inn to the modern Barrow‘s Catfish. These days, it’s also part of an encouraging success story amid the coronavirus crisis.

As in cities worldwide, the streets of New Orleans have come alive this spring with protests, marches, and rallies for racial justice. The Crescent City has long been a hotbed for activism and played an important role in civil rights era organizing that helped put an end to Jim Crow. This week, we take a look at the legacy of the segregated South through stories about the intersections of food, race, and labor over the past century.
