My pal Poppy Tooker gives a short and sweet overview of a few places that visitors and locals should check out or renew their acquaintance with in our city, many of them right here in the French Quarter. That alone makes Poppy an original and an authentic voice for the city and its culture since she is not afraid of embracing the Quarter and its delights and yet I know she won’t say it unless she means it. Brava Poppy. Moveable Feast On Location with Poppy Tooker in New Orleans – FineCooking.com.
French Quarter block by block favorite Poppy Tooker did a great show on seafood recently; Gerard Maras (a giant among chefs in our city) shares his boiling technique, Tenney Flynn who is still the best seafood chef in the Quarter, talked about fish handling, and finally Poppy and her guests discussed the ecological issues facing the harvesting community. Seafood is something Poppy knows a great deal about-she is a fisherwoman herself and one of the best champions of fishing families in Louisiana and across North America.
Can you remember to mark “listen to Louisiana Eats” to your Saturday calendar? I’d recommend it.
