Today on The Food Show, Mary Ann and Tom talk about their excursion this weekend to the south shore on Saturday, where they visited the St. Joseph’s alter that was stunning at Irene’s in the French Quarter.  They enjoyed an italian dinner in the courtyard and the evening was magical.    Sunday, a quick trip to the Oyster Festival in Amite, which was not quite what they thought it would be, then had lunch at the Jacmel Inn https://www.jacmelinn.com/copy-of-culinary-team.  One of Tom’s famous quotes is ” any restaurant can have a bad day” and she is leaving it at that.

In the 3 o’clock hour, Mary Ann talks with Emma Fick, author of Border Crossings.    An illustrated travelogue that brilliantly captures artist and illustrator Emma Fick’s epic train journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway—from Beijing through Mongolia to Moscow—including more than 200 watercolor illustrations and handwritten text that includes cultural and historical information
