In 2005, as part of our "Sweet Home New Orleans" field trip, we celebrated a handful of Tabasco Guardians of the Tradition, honoring them with awards. Two months later, Katrina hit. Businesses were ruined, their owners displaced. Over the past nine months, SFA member Sara Roahen has followed up with these folks, capturing their stories through oral history. They are stories that, thankfully, were not lost to the storm. They are stories of New Orleans' rich culinary traditions and the people who continue to keep them alive. Read interviews from Hansen's Sno-Bliz, Roman Chewing Candy Co., the Vietnamese Farmers' Market, Brocato's and more right here.
