The Life And Legacy Of Leah Chase – Louisiana Eats – It’s New Orleans

This week, we mark the passing of New Orleans icon, and our dear friend, Leah Chase, who died Saturday, June 1 at the age of 96. We spend the hour honoring Leah’s talent and achievements and the legacy she leaves behind.

We begin with one of our favorite Louisiana Eats moments: a special day we spent with Leah in 2012, when then-Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s office kicked off Carnival season at Gallier Hall with king cake and a lovely surprise for Leah.
