The NOLADrinks Show – September 23, 2022

Written by on September 23, 2022

On this week’s The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we are at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum discussing their new exhibit, “The First Settlement: Filipinos in Louisiana.” It tells the story of the first permanent Filipino and Asian settlement in the US, located in St. Bernard Parish, called St. Malo. We also discuss another important area, Manila Village, located on an island in Barataria Bay. We speak extensively about the culinary and cultural history of the Filipino community in Southeast Louisiana. Our guests are Jessica Melendez-Bayuga, president of the Philippine-American Women’s Association of Louisiana, Chef Cristina Quckenbush of Milkfish, and Brent Rosen, president of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum.
