didn't know if anybody knew this or not, but Chef John Folse was at MCI to talk to students about how he created cajun cuisine.

sorry for being off topic, but Ann Kearney(sp) the chef that taught Emril is opening up a resturant in WestChester hopefully by the end of the month.

We ran this back in June:

Anne Kearney has signed a lease on a space for a new restaurant in Dayton that she will call Rue Dumaine. Kearney is a Dayton native who trained and started her career in Cincinnati, then went on to own Peristyle, a celebrated restaurant in New

Orleans' French Quarter. She returned to this area several years ago and has been raising organic vegetables and selling products at local farmers markets.

The new restaurant - named for Peristyle's street - will be an American bistro using ingredients from very local to around the country. She expects the check average to be $35-$40 per person, and will be open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday, and for lunch on Friday.

Rue Dumaine will take over a space left by Chow's Asian Bistro at 1061 Centerville-Miamisburg, on Ohio 725. (It's the first exit off I-675 east of I-75). Kearney hopes to be open by Oct. 1. - Polly Campbell

We'll have to check in on her...
