Food in Post-Katrina New Orleans
“…I hope I live long enough to work this city up. This city is all about food. Sixty-one years in the kitchen has taught me a lot. We're not put on this good earth for free. You do what you have to do. For me, I guess that means I'll just keep on cooking for as long as I can.”
— Leah Chase, Dooky Chase's Restaurant, quoted in Food Arts, June 2007.
