In KEVIN BELTON’S COOKIN’ LOUISIANA, his fourth public television series with WYES-TV, Chef Belton explores the rich and multi-faceted foodways of Louisiana in a 26-part cooking expedition.

The award-winning chef will visit locations across the state for a look at the authentic food traditions of Louisiana cuisine. In his travels, the chef will seek out dishes that reflect Louisiana’s complex blending of cultures, preparing Filipinostyle Beef Tapa with Sinangag (Garlic Fried Rice), Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage Rolls and traditional Czech Kolaches. He’ll also dip into the bounty of Louisiana’s food culture with dishes that reflect its prolific fisheries, its citrus harvest and its thriving family friendly “you pick” farm experiences.

From Chicken and Dumplings, one of the Delta Delights from Northeast Louisiana, to Cracklin Cornbread from Evangeline Parish in the Cajun Heartland, , KEVIN BELTON’S COOKIN’ LOUISIANA will take viewers on a fun-filled food odyssey with the 6’9”gregarious chef.
