This week, Louisiana Eats continues its examination of the food industry as it deals with the affects of the coronavirus shutdown. Now that the initial shock is starting to wear off, people are asking: how do we do business when doing business as usual is out of the question? How can we adapt to this constantly changing landscape?

On this week's show, we look at the role food television plays in the lives of several chefs here in New Orleans. 

We begin with one of the youngest stars of food TV, Kaj Hecht, the recent winner of Chopped Junior. To get an understanding of how the 10-year-old New Orleans local came to be a contestant on the program, we invited Kaj and his father Michael into our studio.

On this week’s show, we bid farewell to 2016 and raise a toast to the New Year by looking back at legends and looking forward to new beginnings. 

 

First, we celebrate the life and legacy of Edgar “Dooky” Chase, who passed away this year at the age of 88. Leah Chase shares stories from their 70 years of marriage, an era marked by the civil rights movement and other transformative moments at their Treme establishment.
