This week New Orleans hosts the biggest sporting event of the year when the San Francisco 49ers come to compete against the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. The festivities have already begun in downtown New Orleans, and WWNO is keeping tabs on Super Bowl events past and present with daily segments.
Plus, make sure to tune into CBSNews Sunday Morning (8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.), February 3 before the Super Bowl coverage starts, to see WWNO's own Poppy Tooker cook up a pot of New Orleans gumbo with CBS cultural correspondent Wynton Marsalis. Marsalis and Tooker agree that gumbo is the emblematic dish of New Orleans and that in New Orleans, the best gumbo usually comes from your mama's kitchen.
Marsalis and Tooker will team up to illustrate his "Ode To Gumbo," a look at the dish that strums the heartstrings of every New Orleans native. Also, catch the full story of Poppy's fun with Wynton in the kitchen, plus her gumbo recipe secrets, on the newest edition of Louisiana Eats! airing this Saturday at 11:00 a.m., and repeating Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.
