To Ignatious With Love: A Culinary Tribute To: A Confederacy Of Dunces – Louisiana Eats – It’s New Orleans

John Kennedy Toole’s novel A Confederacy of Dunces is internationally revered for having captured the essence and eccentricity of New Orleans – and for introducing readers to its larger-than-life protagonist, Ignatius J. Reilly. On this week’s show, we take a culinary look between the pages of the book that, 37 years ago, was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. We begin with Spud McConnell, well known for his portrayal of Ignatius on stage.
