Well you won't see again that it exploded stop this did that the food group of people who have fought fought them via. It believe my wife and what you that my wife called via that she said do you have anymore those food clubs coming out. As at the food club. Personally but you know the food club they used to be. A chain of supermarkets that was headquartered in mobile I think ending their house brand. You know how all supermarkets him just like a generic right in a coordinates and there's anyway their name one is food club I'd do remember and and who'll. Wouldn't wanna be part of food club anyway. I. On. Oh I'm I'm I'm. I'll started to a news on that your limited who interrupted. I'm really. Well with. We never know. I'm still here I'm sure a lot you know Europe you're curious.

If it hurt it sure but oh well it did that depended on who you asked some people thought so and some people it. They're sure they used to but it is ultimately Barry. We feel like you might have to some really expects to be drink or. Only yell back he well you know it is you know trying to trade so. Clark eight I assume you're showing up a little early to they agree to all of your many fans here at the club.

You get to meet him tonight because he is going to be here celebrating his anniversary with his wife which is roughly in the east doing it with the a bomb and in shaken kind of table for that when.

Oftentimes when I'm trying trying to remember something it's harder than if you just let it sit there and jump out of its own accord at a walking. Aha fate in question for you you have a question for me drinks drinks weren't getting good monetize these days. A good mind other than boys and the oysters. For the and I think any good bartender should be able to do that for yeah. Liberal leanings it and not well it helps him and I'll name 00 you've been to a few and you win not happy than that it wasn't that didn't have that takes me. Back at home you know if you were genuinely interested in this. I have a book. Called trader vick's. Cookery. Injuring Corey. Okay and what this was it it was a cookbook really of the dishes that were served at trader vick's which was the originators. Although there's some dispute about this that is another. Restaurant called done the beach Comair. But it was one or the other of those two Kazaa were very similar to one another and they started to an almost Tiki drinks and all of the Polynesian food in and this was a big big deal in the late forties until the seventies I guess when it kind of petered out. But. When they were ears still around. Date excuse me excuse chances it will bug bit arena. For Beatles yeah. And today. He has this cookbook out not have a copy in fact he was on my show with me a long time 25 years ago so I will give you. He is and he invented that drink yet presented him my ties so he is the ultimate authority on that. I will. I will get it and write it down and dignity than you could do yourself I'd I'm sure it's aren't only can make Andrea. You'll get at the way that traders X would have done. Like which which is greatly cities they were founded because it was Bergeron. I'm trying to remember whose first name is Suze. But his his his real name is Bergeron which may be they. He's a cajun so that San Francisco all the way. His first location was and San Francisco and they had one up until just recently and fraud that might still. Well his creation is well aria. It wasn't just one drink it was like a whole array of everything that went with all the food all the wind it was an amazing thing I went to law. I went to the belly high that was the local copy you trader ethics okay. I went there with. With this girl. It was her senior prom. Night which date. Delightfully unlucky these girls she's well but anyway. We we went on our we went on the honeymoon. On skis on the auto sales match moving pretty quick. We will we went to. The valley high as each. And we set down in a friend of mine had recommended to me something called the Tiki bowl. There's too little bowl and is it a bull that sat right in the middle. Of the of the of the table. And it had school or isn't it more than two long straw eyes. Long straws like about two feet long. And and you would just share it with the person you'll win that you'd just suck it up on straw. So I said this is what I've been told this is very. And and so she's game so. They brought I weeks I think it was eighteen at the time. Which was legal drinking age yes she was not she is like sixties. Or seventies. Here comes to people and I take a sip on them thinking as I was serious trigger point anyway. That this really east. She says it is really like cattle anti today that week and then the next thing you know it was all gone. And she said to Chase Utley went to her eyes cheese's mr. something wrong. And I said. No. Everything. Will be fine. A couple of minutes it. I head wound I Wanda drinking the whole thing because she was telling me this that she was drinking it at all. And I eat drink the whole. And mentally if you have an effective though like on three stooges of the the iron and pain coming down it. But a but and it was I don't remember anything at the hole. Pablo and reduce it if and it was and there was an interest in anything what do over the worst part of it is that it was dry if she drills vote no way she jovial right now allies drove everything which was stupid. Really or. So but anyway every time I think of those places I think of that drink okay never had one cents. It's the food show in its be top exports and you we've loved to talk review but food polished Telus would say eating. What's eating you and what are you eating these days to 606368. But first please this. Hello it's the food show. On 105 point three FM HD to stop its forest were coming to light today. From imposed on those where the staff is having supper. This is something. I keep thinking of might be a good story one of these days as this go around from restaurant to restaurant find out which restaurants do good. Special menus for for their staff you know just but all restaurants do that they they focus just one deal. And that's and the staff comes in and sits down and and that and eats well I'd love my observation one common denominator. Via what's the cost only that's for sure. It's an also. An item that. He's seen more than you might imagine is fried chicken my my wife and daughter and I went to gala tours were launch. On Saturday couple weeks ago. And the the waiter or a must've been one of the cooks in the accent does a platter of the fried chicken that they were serving the staff that they all its not on an annual gala to allow the did you get it yes board but I was. It was real good houses in order to other places where you vapors. Ole I would not put it in my top five vote fraud best fried chicken but it was good it was hot today at at a French policy right okay I'll read that one okay. Well will will do so a program is sponsored by Mickey moat goes from us. Mickey moto is has a lot of things going on. That our major. Attractions at least in my mind but you might I think about it for example. They. Are open seven days a week and they do delivery. Through while it. Pretty much the whole city walk and even if you are as safe working in a hospital let's say you know on the eighth floor. They'll bring a Tia you know they they they deliver all over the place. You know a lot of this is sushi so it travels reasonably well. But at their menu goes on to include a whole lot of other dishes among which I would say the single best. Is the collection of hot appetizers. They do some things here than I've never seen anywhere else any other kind harassment. And give it a try Sunday in good if you especially if you one of those people who. Go to. Sushi bars and it's all yet as sushi this is a place where they they really do have a lot more going on just sushi. It's Mickey moto they were on Carrollton avenue about a block and a half. Lakeside.

You know it's coming up. And we were just mentioning a few items that in terms of festivals here's one that I. Not forgotten about who wasn't on my mind what's today. The best chefs of Louisiana. That's the name of the event they have been doing it downtown in the warehouse district for years but they they are moving it as in fact they did move an already use last year. It was at the Lakefront airport. Which is a great place to have it is for one thing you have practically unlimited parking over there it's axis you can really get the easily I guess it's like you could fly in there you could you could take a blip that there. Would you believe this. Once I actually drove the Goodyear blimp you did they let me do it while note you know they had to be Kris. Isn't saying that could get into it thinking out. That anyway getting back to Lakefront airport this is gonna be on a Tuesday. April 11 you see that's that they chefs are off Mondays and Tuesday that's why they are doing it. And and this is attended by lots and lots shifts all of whom are looking forward to may be winning one of these distinctions that they give out. And they honor. The chefs that have been with us for years and years and years they under the brand new ships who'd just been making a splash. And they also and show off some of the guys that have been in it for long enough to be convincing but maybe. It's that they haven't been there long enough for something like that but. Anyway it's a fund racer it's and that the chefs themselves come in and cook all the food so you can best believe that it is seriously good food. And the price is a heck of a deal to hundred bucks. And that's that goes on all night and they have. A band. The American culinary federation is the go largest professional chefs a source association around that's that connection. And the event itself is on April 11 when he seventeen nets at Tuesday night. At the Lakefront airport. And so hope to see there I will be there. Most of the time they have me down on this and MC. And then every now and then they give me a different job so I'll be around doing something. But look to see you in that hundred dollars which isn't much for the kind of food that they're gonna serve view. Will help veterans around you with nonprofit organizations that help out veterans you know how many there are communal harmony.

Beat the heat up up putted up on high it's a food show. I'm Tom Fitzmorris were coming to live today from in the stock that was if there's anything you wanna know about this restaurant called me. And now on I'll ask mr. Joseph he's hanging around here he knows lord knows he knows. 260636. At about anything else you have on your mind if you need to help with a recipe or if you want just an idea I was thinking about that today. When whenever I come up with a new recipe. I always do it without any of the raw ingredients or anything on in my mind. It just have an idea that you know a bitch if I took some pasta and some of some kind of crunchy vegetable. And maybe a little bit root beer. If you just said make in this up the Psycho. You can use you that's where he gets a new dish idea from the you don't start with the ingredients and say OK what do we do with this garlic. Anyway if you. Have something like that that you come up with or you want here about one call me and and let's talk to 606368. That's all we do is talk about food Europe program sponsored by tree in knots. TRE NAS SE I'll tell you what that is I didn't know myself until I ask him. A Petronas is sort of like a vote on ditch. Shallow ditch that runs through the swamps in the marsh lands. In cajun country. And they the the K agents cut their own little. Little had this through goes through the wetlands there are so they can get to the places where they get the croft fiction. And the other official whatever ails they find out there. That's a trend IS. They have a painting of one of them inside the building take a look at it suddenly you'll understand a word that you'd have probably never heard of before. But more important than any of that it's how good the food is there. First time I went there I thought I would be looking at just your basic. Neighborhood style. Or or hotel skew speak hotel style. All day eatery and why's that. To some extent they had hamburgers in a couple of nicks but if you went there. With seafood on your mind. You would find that they would have like 56 different kinds of fin fish and then that's not even getting into the shrimp the oysters and crab and all that. They had all that too and they had like half dozen different ways of baking oysters and grueling oysters and that will get me every time so. Really quite a good investment of us a fix a price it's in the hotel Intercontinental. Which is a lovely establishment it's always did no good place to go. And they are there are seven days a week lunch and dinner and new with lunch specials at thirteen dollars and 95 cents all of this that through a nasty art DNA SNC. In 2606368. A program also today's sponsored by men to build seafood you know the hardest part about. Serving seafood or cooking seafood is finding the seafood. The restaurants work very hard on that he you might have picked that up from when we were talking to mr. Joseph few minutes ago. He talks about how tough that is to detract down thinks likes Beckel Troutman and crabs and crab meat. It is hard. But there's a way around it if if you live on the North Shore especially go to mended filled seafood. This is in the old part of meant to fill couple blocks off the lake front. And they indeed have their own full laying the steel facility they get fresh fission from the ship fisherman they they. They filet at the put out there they have their trips they have oysters by the quart and gallon and every other way you want them. And everything infect you need to do great seafood cook during a home cook a ring yeah look cool make up a new word for that. And mental seafood is at 20/20. Louisiana highway 59 minutes about a mile and a half north of Florida street which is kind of like the last big road around man to feel. You'll find it. And and by the way they have arrest but where they cook the platters in new do daily specials in the whole thing right in the same building medical seafood. A pop pop up the maple street cafe. Still I have not found out and have to go in there one day and ask him point blank. How long this is restaurant in there I think it's a pot it's one years now I remember with a two Brothers took it over. There were doing another restaurant in Kenner in battery rather than it was at work now so they came into. The the brought to. Oh the maple street area which is a lovely collection of shops and galleries in here cutters and all sorts of neat things. On the edge of a residential. Area. And they are diseases they are able to was to take care of it just the basic lunch. All the way up to even know romantic or very business like dinner. It's not fancy. It's not expensive. And there there's seven days a week the maple street cafe 76 point three maple street but midway. Between Broadway and Carrollton the maple street cafe. And then one more little thing try to squeeze this in calf face peace. Think about Sunday brunch this weekend think about cap based Beazer. And it's in the French market more or less it's right across the street from the French market easy to get to. And they are back after good wild being away during the during the Matt after the aftermath of Katrina it was a problem but everything is the way you remember it and better. Particularly. With Alfred that is the chef. It's.
