  1. Keeping in mind I live in New Orleans, I cannot relate with one of the professor’s assumptions: “Food belongs to women”. Down here, our chefs are comprised of males and females of all different colors and who come from many places. I don’t see anything in the article about Asian cuisine, Hispanic cuisine, Caribbean cuisine. Jazzfest is going on this weekend and next weekend here in New Orleans. If the author were able to attend some year (or even THIS year!) and see the variety of foods and where and who they come from, I believe she may see that many of her culinary assertions have already come to life. In a community that embraces LGBTQ+, her culinary vision is already happening. We simply call it New Orleans food. I do love how Professor Elias is exploring new horizons up North.

  2. I find it entertaining that everything is politicized. Let’s talk how terrible it is that our grandmothers cooked most of the time. It probably should have been both grandparents equally? But then, we’d find some other topic to incorporate into a cooking class or event.
