Foodways is the intersection of culture, history, and tradition in food. For Jessica's first lesson, our host heads to cajun country in Rayne Louisiana to learn more about the origins of cajun cuisine with Chef Isaac Toups, owner of Toups Meatery in New Orleans. Chef Toups, a recent Top Chef contestant, is focused on offering what he calls contemporary cajun at his restaurant, but at home, the chef is all about traditional cajun favorites such as gumbo, crab boils, and wild game. But food is only part of the cajun lifesyle as Jessica learns.
