Doc Soup Sundays: A Sunday morning Doc Soup spin-off featuring the world's best art, culture and design docs.

Take a trip to sunny New Orleans and gorge yourself on delicious southern cooking with the legendary restaurateur Ella Brennan, a true visionary in the world of American fine dining. Brennan revolutionized creole cuisine and put the Big Easy on the map, launching the careers of celebrity chefs like Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse in the process. A pioneer for women in the industry, she entered a business dominated by men and turned it on its head, masterminding world-famous dishes and establishing two iconic restaurants: Brennan's and Commander's Place. Learn more about this inspirational woman and feast your eyes on the most celebrated food New Orleans has to offer.

Director Leslie Iwerks will participate in a post-screening Skype Q&A.

Southern Accent, one of Toronto's most popular southern food establishments, will sell their famous cornbread before the film and are offering a special deal for all Doc Soup Sundays patrons from April 16–30. More info here.
