Good Eggs New Orleans is connecting farmers, value-added products, and consumers together in a single system. On this week's Louisiana Eats! we'll speak with leaders of the organization's local branch to hear how their work helps reduce farm waste and keeps money circulating locally.

We'll also turn to Chef Ryan Hughes for cooking tips about bottarga: a cured strip of roe sacks used for finishing salads, pastas and  pizzas.

And to celebrate Chinese New Year we'll speak with Andra Ang, a journalist who spent years in Beijing documenting China's cultural changes as it emerged as a global superpower. Her memoir, To the People, Food is Heaven, chronicles her time abroad and the importance of food in the everyone rituals of its citizens.
