[MUSIC] I'd like you to meet a claimed New Orleans chef, Susan [UNKNOWN]. [NOISE] Hi. [APPLAUSE] Chef Susan Spicer, she's a chef I've looked up to for a long time. And her restaurant Bayona is one of the best restaurants in the city and it's one of my personal favorites. New Orleans is a food town that's steeped in tradition, but it's also constantly evolving. And that evolution has led to the food truck. Believe it or not, I own a food truck but unfortunately we couldn't get the proper license so it's the biggest paperweight ever in the world. You'll be working as teams to create a menu for your truck and you'll be feeding some very special diners. The hardworking volunteers of Habitat for Humanity who are continuing to rebuild the city from the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. My house was under six feet of water for about three weeks, but I have to say the most amazing thing throughout all of this, was the volunteer efforts. We would never have made the progress that we did in New Orleans if it hadn't been for the actual physical Labors of all our fellow citizens. We were so happy to see a food truck. Yes. We were happy to see any kind of truck with food because we had nothing, absolutely nothing. Katrina took everything I had, really. You gotta now I was 83 years old then and people say. You should quite, I don't know. [LAUGH] The pope quit. [LAUGH] But I have to keep going cuz there's a lot of work to do in this city.
