Baskets of perfectly seasoned deep-fried chicken sizzle during lunch hour at Dooky Chase Restaurant in New Orleans, a city famous for its food. But the real magic happens early in the morning, when Leah Chase, 92, arrives to prepare the day's specials.
"I made meatloaf today. Smothered pork chops. I did oyster and artichoke soup," says Chase.
Dooky Chase is a landmark in the city's historically African-American Treme neighborhood.
