In this episode from the “Our Food Heritage” series of “A Taste of Louisiana” from April 7, 2007, Chef John Folse focuses on the English influence on Louisiana cuisine. First, he recounts the history of England’s colonization of the Florida Parishes, along with Libby Dart, a local historian from St. Francisville. In the kitchen, Chef Folse prepares Shepherd’s Pie and talks with Sue Bye and Libby Dart. Next, he goes foraging for wild edibles with Jane Dunn and cooks up an omelet. Back in the studio kitchen, Chef Folse makes Beet Marmalade and continues talking with his guests. Throughout the show, Dudley Smith and Smithfield Fair entertain the audience with live music.
