Chase, Leah

SUMMARY

"Leah Chase . . . the Queen of Creole Cuisine . . . is one of the hottest chefs in town." -The National Culinary Review"While reading the cookbook, I could not only 'hear' Leah talking to me about her food, heritage and family, but I could smell and taste the flavor from the great recipes and the great food that has made Dooky Chase's my favorite restaurant." -Joe Cahn, executive director, New Orleans School of CookingAs the owner and chef extraordinaire of the popular Dooky Chase's Restaurant in New Orleans, Leah Chase has distinguished herself as a community and civic leader through her dedicated involvement with numerous charities and organizations. The preeminent chef in the Dooky Chase kitchen, Mrs. Chase has established a reputation as one of the best purveyors of Creole cuisine in the nation.Leah Chase started out at the age of eighteen working in a laundry in the French Quarter, but soon found a job at the Colonial Restaurant on Charter Street. It was the first time she had ever seen the inside of a restaurant. In 1946, she married Dooky Chase, Jr., and shortly after entered his family's restaurant business, which would grow into the present day Dooky Chase's. Her husband's mother was running the restaurant, and as Leah says, "Black people had no other place to go, so she had a captive audience." Over the years, as Leah's expertise and popularity grew, she was able to exert more influence upon the cuisine and atmosphere at Dooky Chase's. She successfully grafted her country roots, both in ethics and food, to the black Creole tradition of the city, and soon the restaurant became a reflection of Leah herself, and of the black community as a whole.Chase, Leah is the author of 'Dooky Chase Cookbook' with ISBN 9780882896618 and ISBN 088289661X.
