Using food as a way to understand the world is something your parents probably never studied in college, but it’s has become a popular discipline in the past decade. Each year, professor Meryl Rosofsky brings students from NYU’s food studies program to New Orleans for a week-long cultural immersion. We join them at Dooky Chase to hear if their preconceptions of New Orleans are being shed.

We’ll also visit the Steamboat Warehouse in St. Landry Parish, take a cooking class with Kyan Douglas, and make leftovers with Scott Gold and his enormous jar of kimchi.

The other day, I walked through our adoption room at the LA/SPCA. I counted two Dobermans, four Chihuahuas, one Cocker Spaniel, one Yorkie, one Siamese cat and one ragdoll kitty.

Most shelters post pictures of adoptables on their websites. Some will even alert you if you are looking for a pet of a specific breed, size or age.
