New Orleanians don't have many local opportunities to try Filipino cooking. But after a chef staged a pop-up to showcase the jungly fusion of flavors from her homeland, the concept quickly blossomed into a full-fledged restaurant in the Marigny.

Many people within the culinary scene of New Orleans are not originally from here. Leah Chase calls them "foreigners." We'll hear from several of those "foreigners" on this week's Louisiana Eats!

Writer Julia Reed joins us to talk about her early years in the Mississippi Delta, her travels around the world, and her home in the Crescent City. We'll also hear about a new program coming to New Orleans called Good Eggs, which connects people together online so they can source their food locally.

Buying In Bulk? There's An App For That

Buying in bulk saves you money, but not always time... It's hard to tear yourself away from those bins!

The Green Project's Christal White talks purchasing food in bulk on this week's Green Minute.

With the cost of makin’ groceries steadily increasing every day, maybe it’s time for us to revisit buying in bulk.

I’m not suggesting that we all run out to the big box warehouse store for 20 dozen eggs and some snow tires, but rather hit up your local farmer’s markets, food co-ops and grocery stores for beans, rice, pastas, olive oil, maple syrup, honey, flours, soaps, nuts, granolas and even tofu. To find the best local selection, there’s a free app simply called Bulk.

Click here to listen to this week's show.

In honor of Father's Day we're chatting with the boys on this week's Louisiana Eats!.

Chocolatier Tariq Hanna joins us to discuss what inspires his work at Sucré and how cakes have brought him to the White House. Then we'll hear how Jay Bentley, a very masculine chef from Montana, imports the flavors of New Orleans to Big Sky country.

We'll also be joined by Ian McNulty, who tells us which town in Louisiana has the most mouthwatering balls — boudin balls, that is. And we round out the show with a discussion about the "chill" attitude of Louisianians from culinary heavyweight David Chang.
