Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating as they travel the globe.
New Orleans chef John Besh knows a thing or ten about cooking Gulf Coast seafood, and he's acutely aware that the fundamental elements of his beloved cuisine are in jeopardy.
He told Eatocracy,"I'm not sure what the impact on New Orleans cuisine will be, but I'm worried about it. We have the only indigenous urban cuisine in America, and we have this cuisine because of these coastal communities that are so close to New Orleans. They can feed us these incredible products from the oysters to the shrimp to the great finfish of the Gulf of Mexico."
