Louisiana Eats: A Chef's Journey With Cancer

Jan 13, 2018

Chef Carl Schaubhut is a culinary dynamo. The New Orleans native behind Bacobar on the Northshore and DTB in Uptown is known for his innovative menus that marry regional and international flavors. "To say that food was part of life is a literal explanation, Carl told Louisiana Eats host Poppy Tooker. "I mean, it is life. It's every day."

In part one of our interview, Carl shares stories from his electrifying culinary career, from a childhood tugging at his grandparents' aprons in the kitchen to becoming executive chef at Café Adelaide in the French Quarter.

In part two, Carl talks about his cancer diagnosis and recurrence, the opening of Bacobar and DTB, and how maintaining a positive attitude has helped him in all aspects of his life.
