Kevin Belton's New Orleans Celebrations

Chef Kevin Belton showcases the food of New Orleans — "Festival Capital of the World" — from fried oyster po-boy sandwiches with blue cheese and buffalo sauce, to Creole brined chicken with collards and yams, to duck and andouille gumbo with potato salad. During colorful location segments, Belton chats with food vendors and mingles with festival goers at the Oyster Festival, the French Market Creole Tomato Festival, Bastille Day Fete, Satchmo Summer Fest and more. Later, in his new courtyard kitchen, Kevin puts his twist on some of his food-booth favorites, from fried green tomatoes to crawfish pies.
