Your Bead Dog Ate My King Cake – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans
Meredith Timberlake brings along 40 pounds of Haydel’s Bakery King Cake to share with Margo and Ray on Midnight Menu +1.
In an “only in New Orleans” way of life, Meredith works off her day-job king cake by being a cross-fit trainer and a power weight lifter.
Meredith’s +1, Cornell Landry, started out owning restaurants and cooking. When he discovered he could write children’s books Cornell left the restaurant business but didn’t entirely leave food out of his stories. Cornell is the author of the Bead Dog books, inspired by the Haydel’s Bakery bead dog, and also of local kids’ favorite, Goodnight NOLA.
Meredith tells a wide range of tales on this show including growing up around the world from Alabama to Guatanamo, and Cornell tells some wild stories about chauffering actress Faye Dunaway which he groups under the title “Driving Miss Crazy.”
