New Orleans Food Scene Shows the Katrina Recovery

Hosted by

Turtle soup, pecan pie and shrimp po-boys are synonymous with New Orleans, which has always been famous for food.  But Katrina drove some beloved institutions quite literally under water.  Ten years later, the restaurant scene has not just recovered, it’s better than ever, according to Kim Severson, food correspondent for the New York Times.  We also hear from Tia Moore Henry, who was studying to be a nurse before Katrina, and now runs Café Dauphine in the Lower 9th Ward.
