A delightful conversation with the first family of bread in New Orleans: Sandy Whann and son William, and daughter Katie from Leidenheimer Bakery, celebrating 125 years in business. And Cheez Wiz, and crackers like Ritz and Saltines, plus a discussion of Maple St. Cafe.
Peter Caire called in to talk Christmas gifts, and our regular Thursday visitor, Nicole Dorignac told us about fun gifts right off the supermarket shelves. Also the Boston Tea party, turkey basters, roast goose, and chocolate-covered insects.
National Cupcake Day prompted a gosh-darned inspiring chat with Mignon Francois, proud N'Awlins girl, and cupcake entrepreneur. She owns the Cupcake Collection in Nashville and New Orleans. Mignon was a tough act to follow, but our own friend-of-the-show Gunther Preuss held his own with tales of Christmas traditions from his native Germany. Also molasses, the Eiffel Tower, and Jules Verne restaurant there.
In today's episode, I chat with Tori Loomis all about life as a chef & how empowering it can be to get to know your food up close and personal. Tori is a chef and Louisiana native.
