Default Stories about displaced chefs and musician

Katrina-displaced cooks help spread love of Cajun, Creole fare across nation
Quote:
After Hurricane Katrina destroyed his New Orleans home and restaurant, Crump traveled to Atlanta, then Daytona Beach, Fla. A chance encounter with a hotel guest who smelled Crump's cooking lured him to Clarksburg [WV], a town of 17,000 in a state he'd barely heard of.
I found this story about a professional jazz musician turned high school band director rather charming.

Riddle brought his family home, to the place where he grew up: Southern West Virginia.

They stopped at a Wal-Mart, to buy some necessities. They were inside 10 minutes - long enough for somebody to notice their Louisiana license plate.

"Welcome to West Virginia," said the note they found on their car. "We hope you want to stay."
