New Orleans, LA –

Hi, this is Richard McCarthy with the WWNO Farmers Market Minute In New Orleans, we're still learning about tailgate culture. While no one would accuse us of lacking interest in cooking, pre-game dining tends to focus on po-boys in corner bars rather than outdoor grilling. After all, there's a reason we play football indoors during our muggy fall season. Needless to say, many are trying this football ritual on for size. If in search of ideal meats for tailgate grilling, consider Gretna Farmers Market's founding vendor Henry Amato. His Italian sausage has fueled many Tangipahoa Parish high school football games. Or Lake Des Allemande fisher Genie Fonseca. She turns her husband's hunted alligators into alligator sausage. And if the taste of the Superdome's coveted Bloody Marys are on your mind, seek out the Bloody Mary Mix of Mount Hermon's Joe Dobie. For the WWNO farmers market minute, this is Richard McCarthy.
