On this week's Louisiana Eats! we'll hear from Professor Jim Heimann as he talks about the evolution of restaurant menus in the the 20th century and how they chart the cultural values of America. Then, documentary filmmaker Peggy Scott Laborde gets nostalgic about New Orleans' favorite food and drinks.

Plus, Dr. Gourmet returns with advice about salt, and Ian McNulty recommends a great spot just outside of Henderson, La.
