Creole Italian Manale’s Style

On this week’s show, we’ll explore the immense influence that Italian
foodways had on the development of New Orleans cuisine. We’ll time travel
through the years of the family-operated Uptown gem, Pascal’s Manale. This
history, which is now immortalized in Poppy’s new book, The Pascal’s Manale
Cookbook, focuses on two Sicilian immigrant families, the Manales and the
Radostas, forebearers of today’s Defelice clan, who continue the Manale
tradition today. Three generations of family share their stories with us.
