Mandela Wire

Macquet.jpgNelson Mandela died yesterday, and it turns out that chef Dominique Macquet, of Dominique's on Magazine in New Orleans, was "asked to prepare Mandela's first meal out of prison when he was under house arrest." Said Macquet: "I only found out when the food went to the table, which was an unbelievable moment in my career to see a man who was put in jail for 27 years for a belief that was correct." Apparently it was a shrimp louie dish. [WWLTV]
