As part of a celebration of New Orleans at the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center, UC Santa Cruz professors Lewis Watts and Eric Porter gave Katrina Anniversary lectures on the pre- and post- Katrina culture of New Orleans. The lectures were very interesting but how did they leave out the soul of New Orleans culture – THE FOOD!
AND… there wasn’t any gumbo, or red beans and rice at the reception afterwards. There were bands playing New Orleans music and second lining in Yoshi’s lobby. But again, WHERE WAS THE FOOD?
Therefore, New Orleans Bill told Board Vice Chairman Linda Parker Pennington that he would provide his New Orleans Creole Potato Salad, Crawfish Pie, and rum-sauce bread pudding to the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center future events.
