Louisiana Eats!

From WWNO - New Orleans Public Radio

Louisiana Eats! is a radio show for people who cook and people who love to eat well — all with a Louisiana point of view and Poppy's distinctive Louisiana voice. In each program listeners join Poppy as she meets people who produce, cook, and eat the foods we enjoy and treasure — exploring kitchens and stores, farms and waterways where favorite foods are produced and prepared. And because Louisianans love all kinds of food, Poppy wont limit herself to shrimp creole and hot sauce!More from Louisiana Eats! »
