The Inspiration Behind the Princess and the Frog

We’re never too old to enjoy a good princess movie, especially when it’s getting amazing reviews and features a plucky heroine who aspires to open a restaurant as part of her happily ever after. Making it a true must-see, the Princess and the Frog is set in our beloved New Orleans and is inspired by some of the real life notables of Crescent City, namely Leah Chase. Leah is the famed 86-year old chef and co-owner of Dooky Chase who famously cooked up fried chicken with Julia Child. We have yet to eat at Dooky Chase, but we plan on it next time we’re in town.
