The Italians came to America with very few possessions, but it was not long before they were "making good" in Louisiana. Joe Maselli introduces us to these Italian truck farmers, citrus importers, grocers, restaurateurs and ultimately, entrepreneurs of Louisiana's food industry. Chef Folse joins Phyllis Fresina, of Fresina's Pasta Company, as she demonstrates how to make a simple, authentic Italian dish. Bobby Lonero and the New Orleans Express entertain the audience with traditional Italian favorites.
