With the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina upon us, many network news broadcasters and their affiliates across the country are reporting live from New Orleans, Louisiana this weekend. This morning on the Today show, weather anchor Al Roker was joined by 92 year old award-winning chef Leah Chase, “the doyenne” of the landmark restaurant Dooky Chase and her grandson Edgar “Dooky” Chase IIII. According to Al Roker, Leah’s restaurant was shut down 10 years ago due to flooding and was closed for two years. It has since rebounded and is thriving! Leah’s grandson Edgar shared the secret to making delicious Shrimp Clemenceau on the Today show this morning, which he described as shrimp sauteed in butter with garlic and peas. Delicious!
According to Edgar “Dooky” Chase IIII to make shrimp Clemenceau, you’ll need shrimp, butter, garlic, peas, mushrooms, potatoes, white wine, and a few other ingredients. In the video Leah also dished on the soft shell crabs, fried chicken, and grilled red fish that her grandson prepared. ** I’m not sure if the Today show will have the recipe on their website, but if you have any questions about this segment, the recipe or the Today show itself, please contact the Today show directly at Today.com.
