Actor John Goodman takes Michelle Miller on a trip to New Orleans to experience the gastronomic options of the city and sharing thoughts of his adopted hometown. Rebecca Jarvis investigates the history of gin. Meanwhile, Faith Salie weighs in on the geometry of pasta.

Also on the broadcast, Serena Altschul reports on high-end yogurt, Erin Moriarty looks into the business of food expiration dates, Tracy Smith reports on the amount of food wasted on a regular basis, Anna Werner focuses on the Southern treat Goo Goo Clusters, and Bill Geist attempts to eat a 72-ounce steak at a restaurant in Amarillo, Texas.
