Cake & Dip – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Who doesn’t like cake? Or pie. Or brunch. Or dip.

It’s one thing to enjoy eating all of these items. It’s a whole other thing to make them. Every day.

Chaya Conrad and her staff of up to 16 employees open the doors every morning at 7 am at Bywater Bakery and every single day there’s a full range of breakfast, lunch, and fresh cakes ready to be enjoyed.

Robert Wolf makes 4 different flavors of all-natural sour cream dip, under the brand name, Dip Me Snacks. You can find Dip Me Snacks dips in stores across Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.

On this edition of Out to Lunch, Peter Ricchiuti manages to tear Chaya and Robert away from the bakery and the dip production line to sit down and have lunch with him. Unless you’re in the food business yourself, it might be hard to imagine just how difficult it is to get away from work for something that seems as simple to most of us as lunch.
