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. We ll also visit Manale s oyster bar for a once in a lifetime shucking experience with celebrity oyster shucker "Uptown T" Thomas Stewart and speak with Loyola University history professor Justin Nystrom about how Sicilian Americans shaped New Orleans food culture.
