I always enjoy talking with Chef Paul Prudhomme. I remember the first time I met him in New Orleans years ago when he weighed at least 200# more than today. I took cooking classes from him at K-Paul's about 20 years ago. Loved eating in his once NYC restaurant-can't remember the name. His spices have changed greatly and the salt has been considerably reduced thank goodness.

He still has a very good but heavy hand with seasonings The Tortilla Guy

Spice is always great, it was the heavy heavy salt, but he has reformilated, something about realizing health and our mortality I think.
