Overview

Leah Chase: Listen, I Say Like This CD by Carol Allen, Leah Chase

"Leah Chase is a superlative chef who knows her trade, and a wonderful human being."
--Los Angeles Sentinel

"Leah Chase . . . The Queen of Creole Cuisine . . . is one of the hottest chefs in town."
--National Culinary Review

An African American woman raised in rural Louisiana, Leah Chase defied conventional expectations by transforming a local sandwich shop into a world-renowned restaurant. Her role at the helm of New Orleans' Dooky Chase's restaurant has garnered her recognition, not only as a culinary extraordinaire, but also as a nationally respected patron of the arts and a community leader.

Born in 1923, the esteemed chef is a living legend far beyond the boundaries of the city. From politics to art, Chase is a woman who speaks her mind. Her tremendous personal strength and deep religious faith have carried her through the sudden loss of her daughter and a bombing during the Civil Rights era. Narrated by Chase herself, this biography invites listeners to share in the personal events that have shaped her life.

Leah Chase biographer and prize-winning cook Carol Allen has enjoyed a career as an educator and school administrator in Louisiana and Nebraska and as a university professor in South Carolina.
