Casa Pelican Es Su Casa If You're A Foodie at Heart

Casa Pelican

So the saying goes, you can’t talk about New Orleans without talking about the food. But for some people, talking’s not enough – some people have to make it. Karen Duncan is one such individual, a chef who came by Louisiana cuisine at her restaurant in Toronto. Her adopted home is Algiers Point, where she owns the bed & breakfast, Casa Pelican. NolaVie’s David Benedetto sits down with Karen to hear more of her story. 

On this week’s show, we’re capturing portraits in sound of several superstar chefs in Louisiana and beyond.

Commercial kitchens are the workplaces (and playgrounds) of some of the most inventive people around and they have some of the best soundtracks on the planet.

When your dinner reservation is still just a pencil mark in a ledger, long before the candles are lit, before the linen table cloths are smoothed and the cutlery is placed just so, your favorite restaurants are suffused with great music. Rock 'n' roll, gut-bucket blues, country, funk, ska, and jazz make the food taste better because the chefs are listening. And their musical taste is just as refined as any other.
