Hero Profile » About Poppy Tooker
Poppy Tooker is priceless. Simple as that. She is single-handedly saving the Calas, a long-lost street sweet from New Orleans. And, frankly, she's doing the world a big favor - you must make these! Poppy also shares her cooking expertise at the New Orleans Cooking Experience, a wonderful place to learn about food and the warm, wonderful New Orleans culture. Recently Bobby Flay challenged Poppy to a Gumbo throwdown. Seriously. What was he thinking? Also, the New Orleans "Times-Picayune" recently named Poppy one of the heroes of Katrina for her role in supporting and fund-raising for both the restaurants of New Orleans and the food suppliers and fishers.
