14 years and 4 days from today. New Orleans and it’s people were changed forever when hurricane Katrina hit on August 29, 2005. While the raging waves took much: lives, homes, memories etched in photos, and so much more, the waters could never wash away the spirit of determination, love, art, and soul that those displaced and who could return carry with them every day. It is that spirit that is evident in every dish prepared by NOLA Creations, the Season 10 winners of the Great Food Truck Race on Food Network and the first Black team to snag the title. Today, I have the privilege to chat with Chef Darrell Johnson to learn how everything in his background, from cooking with his great grandmother to washing dishes to Katrina brought him and his wife Aunna all the way to top. We also take about the community and family they found with other contestants on the show and some amazing projects they already have in store.
