We live in a mobile world. People often move from place to place finding fulfillment in their new homes while brining some of the best things from their old ones with them. When a horrible hurricane hit the Gulf Coast, Joel and Herb Tassin (Tahs-ann) decided to leave their beloved New Orleans for good and move to Nashville. Among the treasures they brought with them was the ability to create wonderful, New Orleans-style food. Rob Wilds recently met these brothers at their restaurant, Voodoo Gumbo, for food like you'd find in the French Quarter.
