Louisiana Eats

On this week's show, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of our show's debut!

We've dug through our archives for some of our favorite moments over the past decade, with an emphasis on Louisiana culture and cuisine. The first episode of Louisiana Eats broadcast on June 9, 2010. That year also marked the 125th anniversary of New Orleans’ streetcar line. We look back at our very first field piece, when we took a streetcar ride with the late, great historian Michael Mizell-Nelson.

See You In Food Court

May 30, 2020

On this week's show, Louisiana Eats looks at the place where the law intersects with food and drink. The topic's not as dry as you might expect—especially when it comes to liquor and law!

Since Ralph Brennan and Terry White reopened the venerable Brennan's Restaurant in 2014, they've initiated some new traditions, like champagne sabering in the patio and an annual turtle parade. On this week's show, we speak with general manager Chris Pendleton, who, since the coronavirus shutdown, has been demonstrating the art of sabrage in a series of funny videos posted online. One in particular, which featured him dressed up as the Easter Bunny, became a worldwide sensation.

With the state under lockdown due to Covid-19, Louisiana residents spending more time in their home kitchens than ever before. On this week's show, food columnist and Cooking Up a Storm co-author Judy Walker joins us with ideas and advice on how to make delicious meals during this pandemic, even if you're using a limited pantry.

After the coronavirus shuttered their company, QED Hospitality, the duo were able to change gears to keep employees on the payroll and meet a growing need in healthcare.
