Leah Chase is the chef at Dooky Chase's restaurant and a culinary icon in New Orleans. I interviewed her in her FEMA trailer, where she talked about the return of Dooky Chase. We also talked about Creole food, and the distinction between European Creole cuisine and the cuisine of Creoles of Color. While speaking about the evolution of Creole food, Leah pointed out that Integration exposed Blacks to European Creole cooking. Black cooks then added their knowledge and ingredients, adding to New Orleans' rich culinary tradition.
