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

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.

Iconic Culinary Legends

Jun 20, 2020

What does it take to make a name for yourself in the restaurant business? You need nerves of steel, the heart of a hero, and maybe you have to be a little bit crazy. This week we’re visiting with chefs and restauranteurs who are legends in the business.

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.

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!
