On this week's show we're hosting a southern comedian, a southern business, and a southern chef.

Listeners may have seen Jeff Foxworthy hosting The American Baking Competition, but his connection to food runs deeper than some might expect. Jeff joins Poppy to discuss his relationship with food using his signature redneck humor.

It's been a long road of recovery for Drew Ramsey and the Hubig's Pie factory, but a year's worth of planning has found the business a new home. Drew's back to tell us the story.

Finally, Jarred Zeringue of Eat New Orleans discusses the family recipes that inspire his cooking.

The Language Of New Orleans In One Word: Gumbo

Lead in text: 
Marco Werman, the host of PRI's The World, was recently in New Orleans and filed this report on the intricate history of that most signature Louisiana dish: gumbo.
You might have heard me mention that I recently spent some time in New Orleans, as a guest of public radio station WWNO. And one of the things that struck me about the "Big Easy" is the language of the place. It's a reflection of the diversity and wild history of the city.
