ReMARKable Palate #206: The Soul of New Orleans
I recently spent a whirlwind few days in New Orleans at the national conference for the US Personal Chef Association, where I spoke with two of that city’s most beloved food people, Chef Frank Brigtsen of Brigtsen’s and Charlie’s, and Miss Leah Chase, owner of Dooky Chase and considered by most to be the Queen of Creole Cooking in Louisiana, especially as she calls it, “Creole de Couleur”. Chef Frank was instrumental in bringing the conference to New Orleans and both he and Miss Leah care deeply about the recovery of the city and the love they have for the people they feed. They gave me a peek into what it means to live and love in New Orleans.
