In this episode from the “Our Food Heritage” series of “A Taste of Louisiana” from April 14, 2007, Chef John Folse focuses on the English influence on Louisiana cuisine. First, he recounts the history of Rosedown Plantation in St. Francisville, along with Mary Thompson, a descendent of the builders, and Libby Dart, a local historian. In the kitchen, Chef Folse prepares a Feliciana Summer Pudding and talks with Mary Thompson, Richard Scott, and Anne Butler. Next, he visits Butler-Greenwood Plantation in St. Francisville where Anne Butler, the seventh generation owner, and her cousin, Bob Butler, share their family recipe for Pecan Whiskey Cake. Back in the studio kitchen, Chef Folse cooks Grilled Lollipop Lamb Chops and continues talking with his guests. Throughout the show, Dudley Smith and Smithfield Fair entertain the audience with live music.
