Meet the Chef: Pableaux Johnson

We were fortunate to have New Orleans-based photographer and writer, Pableaux Johnson, visit our test kitchen. Pableaux not only writes about and documents food- he also cooks! Currently on his traveling Red Beans Road Show tour, Pableaux captures the essence of New Orleans food and culture. Below, you'll hear our in-person interview with him.

PeachDish and Pableaux have partnered to bring you a Louisiana classic to your own kitchen; Pableaux Johnson's Red Beans & Rice, featured as a meal kit available year-round!
