Cultural Tourism At Its Finest: Food Studies In New Orleans – Louisiana Eats – It’s New Orleans
Using food as a way to understand the world is something your parents probably never studied in college, but it’s has become a popular discipline in the past decade. Each year, professor Meryl Rosofsky brings students from NYU’s food studies program to New Orleans for a week long cultural immersion. We join them at Dooky Chase to hear if their preconceptions of New Orleans are being shed. We’ll also visit the Steamboat Warehouse in St. Landry Parish, talk quail eggs, take a cooking class with Kyan Douglas, and make leftovers with Scott Gold and his enormous jar of kimchi.
