On this edition of the NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we welcome returning guest, Pepper Bowen of the Culinaria Center, part of the National Food and Beverage Foundation. This time around, we discuss kitchens in New Orleans that supported activists during the Civil Rights Movement as well as other topics, including African-American women selling pralines in Congo Square prior to the Civil War and more. We also touch on some news including the passing of Mr. Okra, Tales of the Cocktail, French Quarter Festival, the James Beard Awards, and more.
Join us as we explore the world of drink and food in New Orleans and beyond! Each week, we present news and discussion on issues that affect the food and drink scene, the hospitality industry, and more. Often recorded on location, in and around the New Orleans area, we bring you exciting guests, events, and subjects. With our in-depth interviews and features on themes ranging from seasonal drinks to social issues in the service industry, we cover a unique range of topics and conversations from the culinary, beverage, and cultural landscape. We present a perspective that is inspired locally but takes a world view. Of course, since we’re here in the Crescent City, we also talk music, art, history, and much, much more. The NOLADrinks Show can be found by podcast and locally in NOLA on radio. Please also visit NOLADrinks.com and use #NOLADrinks on social media to connect with us. Cheers, You All!
