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.

On this week's show we'll hear about the growing urge to eat local. Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko talk about their new book and how they practice its ideologies on their farm. Plus Dickie Brennan discusses the initiatives he's taken to source duck locally for restaurants in the New Orleans area.
