On this week's Louisiana Eats! we'll go Down on the Batture with Professor Oliver Houck. He'll explain the ecology of this small sliver of land, the bounty of foodstuffs found there, and the opportunities it provides for fringe living.
Every year thousands descend on the New Orleans Fairgrounds, but few know about the course's hidden plot of land that fed families years ago. Louis Broussard recollects about his time at this secret garden. Then we'll hear how a North Carolina farmer uses her investigative journalism background as a vantage point for her new career as a cattle farmer.
