Create Showcase: Let The Good Times Roll, airing Friday, February 12 from 9-12pm, Saturday, February 13 from 10am-3pm, and Sunday, February 14 from 12-5pm on WXXI-CREATE, presents back-to-back episodes from Kevin Belton's New Orleans Celebrations and Kevin Belton’s New Orleans Kitchen.

In Kevin Belton's New Orleans Celebrations chef Kevin Belton showcases the food of New Orleans — "Festival Capital of the World" — from fried oyster po-boy sandwiches with blue cheese and buffalo sauce, to Creole brined chicken with collards and yams, to duck and andouille gumbo with potato salad. During colorful location segments, Belton chats with food vendors and mingles with festival goers at the Oyster Festival, the French Market Creole Tomato Festival, Bastille Day Fete, Satchmo Summer Fest and more. Later, in his new courtyard kitchen, Kevin puts his twist on some of his food-booth favorites, from fried green tomatoes to crawfish pies.

In Kevin Belton’s New Orleans Kitchen Kevin explores the mix of cultures that contribute to the distinctive food of New Orleans by delving into the city's diverse culinary influences, including Cuban and Vietnamese cuisine. Recipes range from fried oyster po-boy sandwiches and Creole chicken to duck and andouille gumbo. Belton also emphasizes the bounty of ingredients available in the local pantry — from coffee and seafood to citrus and more.
