Next Door Chef New Orleans
Roux On Canal
Siobhan is a New Orleans transplant from the east coast who credits her grandmother, Haboo, with fostering her love for food and cooking. While Siobhan is confident in the kitchen, she would be the first to admit that her grilling skills could use some work. She hopes to master the grill and to make her grandmother proud with her newly acquired cooking flair.
We partnered Siobhan with Chef Nina Compton who showed Siobhan how the right type of salt can make all the difference. Siobhan’s home was turned into a restaurant so that she could show her new found skills to her closest family and friends. Her amazing transformation was made even more special when a surprise visitor appeared.Watch Video
