Dale Degroff


On this week's Louisiana Eats! we speak with Taylor Mathis about his escapades around the Southeast in search of the best tailgate parties on College Game Day. We'll also hear from Bill Heavey, who spent a year eating foraged food and writing about it in his new book It's Only Slow Food Until You Try to Eat It.


Tales of the Cocktail has been shaking up the international cocktail scene since 2002. We'll speak with founder Ann Tuennerman for a retrospective of the annual event, and find out her plans for the future.

Then, we'll continue our spirited discussion by talking with the King of Cocktails, Dale Degroff. Dale outlines his involvement in the cocktail scene and discusses its return to popularity in the past decade.

Finally, we'll hear about a new collaboration between the Leidenheimer Baking Company and Tableau, a new restaurant in the French Quarter.

Raise your glass to the first hour-long edition of Louisiana Eats! We'll speak with cocktail experts, bar chefs, and even a Louisiana Senator to bring you all sorts of insights about your favorite drinks.
