Treme In A Hot Skillet

Lolis Eric Elie walks us through his New Orleans neighborhood, the TV show "Treme," and the wonderful cuisine of NOLA.

The TV series "Treme" on HBO portrays life in New Orleans, which is heavily flavored by the unique local cuisine.  A companion book, called Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans, lays out New Orleans recipes from a number of chefs, from Crispy Kale to Sweet Potato Turnovers.     Staff writer, story editor and book author Lolis Eric Elie joins us to talk about the appeal of the city, the neighborhood, the series... and the food.  Oh, the food.

HBO series and New Orleans cuisine come together in Treme.
