Tom Ramsey is a chef, sommelier and raconteur living in Shreveport, Louisiana. (He lived in Jackson, Mississippi, for 25 years and moved shortly after this Storytellers night.) At his day job, he coordinates the Louisiana Food Prize Festival. At night he wears a cape and fights crime. Not really, but just because he currently doesn't own a cape.
