In Memory of Leah Chase: Leah reminiscences about her childhood
This podcast is the last of three interviews with Leah Chase. I am revisiting this series of interviews in memory of our great New Orleans Queen of the Kitchen, whom we lost on June 1. In this conversation on Feb. 5, 2012, Leah talks about her parents and shares reminiscences about how she was raised. She explains how her experiences as a youth were very different from the way young people of today grow up. Leah also shares her thoughts about food, her life, and the way she expresses love. Leah’s distinctive food brought people together around the table and her expansive spirit touched everyone she met. We will miss her dearly. This interview took place in the kitchen at Dooky Chase Restaurant in New Orleans.
