And they are always full so if you wanna go their I would get a reservation. And this is not a little neighborhood place this is not rocky and Carlos it's not the burden of basic neighborhood restaurant food that is dominated saint Bernard parish forever this is upscale little bit they're buying and really fine finish.

Some of the dishes are famous and one's creations like there was is Rockefeller. Some of them -- brand new dishes that they just dreamed up than some of -- kind of in between. But whatever it is I think you'll like it. And you'll also I think like the daily cocktail special deal that they which they sell for 25 cents ago which is not that. What he can't make it today because I -- it's a turning on a dime and they do close to lose you'd have to get a move on. Pick another day and do it sometime before the holidays can really rolling -- then they start -- that house. It's like they always have -- busy busy place this senator of New Orleans dining since 1840.

Which is -- tragedy. 41 thing -- can not really go to lunch if you're on the busy from noon to three years that but wipes out launch. But yesterday. The finished the show. And I just put all my stuff away and spud command to his follow orders maybe it's oh lead in the him. And he just took over an idea and walked three blocks away from the radio station to Luke.

How stations or a little bit like Germans they had they -- German names often times a lot of German -- qualities that their food. But don't column Germans because they're very very French and proud to be. So. Anyway. They do that they actually do have those little bit in German food on the menu it's an interesting place and I expected to walk in. And find of pretty empty dining room this place has caught fire. And literally. The place was full. At 315. In the afternoon. Well I've waited he would just a couple of minutes -- the table.

But there workable it was always really good that was for Christmas in New -- and -- each and nobody ever seen that before. Doing. Yeah it was at -- I remember it being one of the best Mexican restaurants around. It in -- old -- yeah. Oh while the original place was. And it was. It. But in the right. The call.

At that by. 260. 636 its food show here and once gave the wrong 26018. At -- -- I'm having a great. I think -- comment on hey I'm. A gunman who called in about an hour ago about it dish. With a big bouquet don't. He -- I had just turned my radio on and I really didn't hear most of but he added. Well what he did was he went to Ruth's Chris Steak House and it was a side dish probably a seasonal. Side issue was made with sweet potatoes and it was topped. With eight crunchy mix that the only identifiable. Ingredient. For sure. Was the currency news ground up pecans. On top of it. And it was run under the broiler or into the oven and then it got a little crusty on top and he said it was just great. -- think he wanted to know what the liquid was that refused. And if you wanted to know what you know how to make that basically I've got the tellem the most important thing and that these. The the best way to find -- recipes go to the restaurant and say hey how do you make this leave enough most of whom will tell you. Yeah I think that. But I think it just can't let out my mom used as eloquent and -- did and it -- -- camera camera. Well that -- that's possible. So you know -- the batter and you know. Very everything. Along with them marshmallow on top baking baking it in the happen. Yeah so that's almost a different deal entirely. If he said it actually had a crunchy crust on top. And I don't think you get that with Karo syrup but with sugar you would. -- happen not right yeah. Right and the mixture of maybe -- -- And yeah well it's a good idea anyway.

And then a block away on the corner of -- -- in common which is to literally across the street from share. -- -- foray which I think it's just great. It's but four years old nut well known. It seemed news. It is everybody but the people who fill it up every night certainly know about it. And just great great food there and what about tomorrow. Sunday brunch if it were me and I went there I would walk or knows is I think -- knows that that's brunch in the city. It's really nice but is on the places.

And the old place they they renovated it shortly after the hurricane is really needed it then and they have some flood damage to. And that of very good job but it looks basically the same as it did before which is home and not very straightforward guy kind of place. -- after the hurricane of all the restaurants that people kept asking me about the fate of I heard by more questions about that when than any of the rest on -- More than commanders in all these other -- were taking a long time to get back open so people really love it. It's a straightforward thing everybody gets the same. Ordered. You can get other things if you want which -- start off with a huge pile the onion rings. Thin slice real good he can't stop beating them and get wedge salad with the blue cheese dressing like. And the only to get there really is that Tebow. -- T bone there's its just that's the state that they. Became famous for they do hopefully some strips and revise but I think the Tebow. And -- and you know some potatoes and rotten and their yards and you'll eat too much and we go way over Europe fat intake for that day but that's a once. -- I don't think they take them you can try not sure if they do -- for a birthday how many people.

Tuesday night that's perfect that you'll get right. Q all right enjoy. The food show where we hear him voters. This thing keeps -- what I have no idea where to go next this is bill bill welcome to the Puccio. I -- very heart -- the question. A big question -- -- and make these roles that are bracelet like you can -- to -- lady roles at the polls now. And has now apparently they're all on one for Thanksgiving general. But I wanna try to become the night before too much for -- Turkey in particular going to help want to make a mark for -- large spots. Why one thought process can take on WW rushed to a lot of marked the first time -- -- -- help -- the global. What do you -- them more. Yeah that the along with the way I would do it is I would do the first rise. Overnight. In the refrigerator. Could settled just in the it'll keep on rising you'll just do so more slowly. And then the next morning just you know ball of mud and as you know the second rise happens pretty fast. Although you I would take him out first thing in the morning to you to do that. And then you shoveled in the -- another alternative is under -- -- just good to the whole thing but under the -- of a little bits of their. Just starting to get brown on the outside. And just certainly no. Put a loose fitting rap on top of it you do one a little bit here to get in and out but not a lot. And then when it's time to serve just pop them in the oven for five minutes and and and LB like right out of the -- It's part of the way I wouldn't -- more. Yeah well we all need that leave me and we. We have had some Thanksgiving where we get fifty people here scroll or realize so I know what you mean and that's that's the way I would do that. I don't -- Haven't heard yet she thought it was what started child. I can't give -- and no -- not giving -- numbers on. On it's the Saturday show because it's a different station and not only that but it don't have the Joan of -- fired up right. Only during the week out and -- it yeah all right thank you. That shall number is that's a long story of Louis welcome to the food show. Good afternoon. There -- take America off I'm going to restaurant -- tonight. I was there yesterday. All they recommendations from the first time. It's a huge menu I would start off with -- oysters one way or the other oysters draw on the half shell or they -- new dish. Can remember what they call it but it's it involves making them on the show with some bread crumbs and butter in a little bit of herb saint. And a half a dozen of them less than 24 hours ago and they were fabulous that he Horry. They also do a board of various kinda cold slice putts Hayes and and cured meats and that's that's an interest in. Our seafood they have up. That was especially. Red fish -- on that -- was very. -- -- -- only one issue I've found there that sounds a lot better than it is in its what they called the station platter or something like that. It's three different kinds of sausages on top of club. On top of Lyonnais potatoes but I don't think it's I don't pick the sausages a roller derby -- Fellows they say that they make of themselves and they probably do but just because you make it yourself doesn't make it. -- where it sure sounds great. -- a lot of good food there. Huge -- really huge lot of good daily specials and ultimately a bargain in terms of price. Right okay well thanks very much appreciate it. On place our resume in just the moment after first please that's. There's -- hello hello hello it's the food show. On the big 870 WWL. And Lucy who's -- -- over here it's Tim might think Tim welcome. Thank you. There -- with a group on. The group. The ultimate stricken government for a should be all -- story okay. First of all. Boyle. A chicken either. Drumstick or whatever you wish I use it's partially but some people technical chipped it. Secondly -- you're blowing it you can make a beard though. The -- should be -- white -- or some people use wheat flour made from looked like slug but otherwise okay. Then you put Michael -- the and it's similar to apply. He'd prefer olive oil but he any light oil won't do. Then you may -- may not have an excuse not to and then you gradually -- go from that ball. Into a ball. And go ahead and rolling out people and so it for a while it really doesn't matter roll out on it very very equally in. Oh smooth surface such four Mike go for example. Our slate. After you've got to ruled out completely. Server should be flower of course then put it into strips. Southerners generally don't. Make -- force in my experience Alabama Mississippi Malaysia. Don't make that the bill balls there -- if human human smugglers he'd roll and get away. So I if you release. Come back to Europe and two years. Our way -- but before you before you go any farther here. These dumplings you're making out of flour and water. Flour and water and tolerable. I'll look how much of. About. To trigger. A church records. OK so a how much how much show flower you starting with. I'm I just start and it's been on the mound. Dumplings -- make. Usually in her -- are trying to relate -- one of these. About one cup of flour right to Jeter goes slow oil well oil witches for and it's like 03 ounces which is. Almost. Half cup. -- -- -- Not quite knowing you know you can judge you and me most of this is my bald nobody use some measurement really truly get abusive. You can always ever should track very tolerable all the flower just get your -- into you know relatively tight ball and enrollment now. You can let its it's preferable to letting its April on this moves surface. Okay -- we got all that so you have the hot pot of all the boiling liquid. Right you remove the chicken I do at least I -- and and I cut my dumplings. Usually with a plastic knife or something like that could go in and placed them on top of this -- -- they will -- I cross -- -- it just makes me and makes it easier to deal with. -- until you fill up your you know you're desired number. And -- -- -- -- put -- -- and I'm like all right -- look at it let it go about 22 involvement. After that. No he's still rolling boil no known I don't know out reasonably well at all after you put them and you put some. Simmer okay summer. After that you let them cook. Meanwhile you Gloria I do some people don't and I own the chicken. Okay and then what I'm I'm running law. And I and I go and and all of the -- to the dumplings. And it's important just to serve them. The first day maybe the second day they're not very good effort to rated. If you know anything like that. Okay and it hit the chip OK okay well. Yes I was gonna say thank you very much well thank you medical remember issue and not formally. Who'll Nichols. Nichols remembers me and -- finally have no idea what that means. No idea what that means. Well. And -- just hung up that was strange. You know basically what he was making -- was passed. But we have no idea but the proportions of anything so.
