Nell Nolan: WWOZ Groove Gala, Retreat Center John Folse

“Music Heals the Soul” was on the deep teal, celebratory handkerchiefs guests received when they entered the doors of Tableau and Le Petit Theatre. They flocked as “Soul”-mates from 18 states to the Vieux Carré premises for WWOZ’s Groove Gala, a sold-out success chaired by Bruce Wainer (joined by wife Ellie) to benefit their favorite radio station. It was conceived as a multi-level party with music provided by Doreen Ketchens in the courtyard, complete with festival chairs, and by Al “Lil Fats” Jackson and Meschiya Lake inside the restaurant. And that was just the beginning.

Chef John Folse’s ‘Simply Sensational, Super-Moist’ Fruitcake

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The fruitcake may have originated in ancient Egypt or the Roman Empire. The confection was, and still is, widely loved in England, where it was originally called plum cake, and was served at weddings and other celebrations. How the fruitcake made it to Louisiana is hard to determine. Nevertheless, fruitcake is commonplace on the Christmas table in Bayou Country.
