New Orleans Flavor: How Creole/Cajun Cooking inspired a nation.What is it about New Orleans food that makes people fall in love? Some of the best food in the world comes from New Orleans and the French Quarter. We'll spend an hour today exploring The French Quarter's food, people, history, culture, jazz, pizazz and love.
My heart is in Nola. I'm a die-hard-Saints fan, rain or shine, I talk about that city like I've lived there my whole life. Whenever I have ever walked down the streets in the French Quarter it felt like I was home. Even as a tourist I never got lost. It just seemed like I knew where everything was and I automatically knew where not to go. I never could explain that and that's the only city that has ever done that to me. If I had an opportunity to work and live in the French Quarter, I believe I would do everything in my power to make it happen. It's the food, the people, the architecture, the soul of the French Quarter that draws me in. People have said they were eaten alive there. New Orleans never chewed me up and spit me out. I felt embraced and comforted. I felt like I belonged there. It felt like home.
World Footprints traveled to New Orleans for our annual broadcast at French Quarter Festival. We streamed live from the heart of the Quarter at Jackson Square in the Tableau restaurant--Dickie Brennan's latest gem. Each year we bring you something new and this year was no exception. We took a deep dive into the city's African-American history, New Orleans role in World War II, the history of voodoo, culinary arts and the performing arts. We had an amazing year and we thought it appropriate to end 2014 in The Big Easy. Join us for the world's largest music brunch and let the good times roll.

Listen in to the audio of our children's book which is a metaphor of a real life story of love, friendship, perseverance and everlasting bonds. Juba Kali narrates and Denise Thompson stars as Tori the caterpillar/butterfly.
The video entitled, “French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl” is an animation for the first book collaboration between Cary and Gretchen. The (as-of-yet) unreleased DVD also features Allie Moffet as Lebeau, the Corgi, from the Lower 9th Ward, Steven Wilson who holds the role of Kendall, the mighty owl from the Pacific North West, who guides these friends, and Juba Kali who performed magnificently as the narrator. A heartwarming story loved by children and adults…
Our guest, following the audio, will be Ms. Denise Thompson and she will share the tale of her thoughts and feelings on bringing the character of Tori to life. Denise is an accomplished actress, salon owner and hair artist, wonderful mother and all around talented woman with a glowing heart and inspirational philosopher on the beauty of daily life. We have extended invites to Allie, Steven, Juba, and Caroline (The book’s illustrator) to call in and join the conversation. You won't want to miss this show.

World Footprints returned to New Orleans for our 7th annual French Quarter Festival 2-hour broadcast. This year we set up at Tableau Restaurant, Dickie Brennan's newest culinary gem in Jackson Square. This second hour of our FQF broadcast explores the unique history of New Orleans with two prominent professors from the University of New Orleans.
The diverse heritages of the people of New Orleans makes this city very unique, interesting and alive with traditions that are not found in any other city in the country. New Orleans is a place where Africans intermingled with Native Americans and european settlers ultimately creating a sustainable culture that distinguishes New Orleans today. Dr. MaryMiitchell, History Professor at UNO, joins us to discuss the African contributions to New Orleans and the dynamics that slavery played in the development and culture of this city.
Most people don’t equate compassion and beauty when they think of Voodoo, but Voodoo historian, Professor Martha Ward, says that is what she discovered when she first began researching the practice. Prof. Ward is a Professor Emeritus at UNO and author of the book, Voodoo Queen: The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau, the only academic account of the famous New Orelans voodoo priestess and her daughter, Marie Laveau II. Professor Ward offers a Voodoo history lesson and her belief that Hollywood and media have incorrectly racialized and stigmatized Voodoo.
Enjoy our FQF hour one discussion of New Orleans art and history.
