Pete Evans goes on a road trip across Lake Pontchartrain for a farm-fresh-feast Louisiana style.
On this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking, Pete Evans goes on a road trip across Lake Pontchartrain for a farm-fresh-feast Louisiana style and discovers that there is more to New Orleans than Mardi Gras. Who better to take us there than radio host/story teller Poppy Tooker and acclaimed New Orleans chef Susan Spicer. On their way they stop by local purveyors to pick up the ingredients for the night's big feast. First stop on the road trip, Farmhouse Dairy Co. where Pete picks up fresh ricotta made from goat's milk. Next stop is Bartlett Farm where the chefs pick local vegetables, farm fresh eggs and locally raised chickens. After an adventurous day on the road, it is time to eat! On the menu tonight, Stuffed Eggs with Prosciutto, Charred Fritters and Roasted Beets with Whipped Goat Ricotta, a delicious Spicy Chicken Dish with great local fruits, and a Louisiana dessert...Creole Cream Cheese. All for a pop-up party of 18 or so friends, family, fans, and more than a handful of local purveyors. A great way to spend the day!
