In his blog, Mustard Sandwiches, he shares anecdotes about his motion picture and film production experiences. In 1969, Leggio designed the casting system for the Louisiana State Employment Service that some twenty other states have emulated and adopted. He won a Louisiana State Science Foundation project in 1969 that received national acclaim and resulted in the formation of the Louisiana Film Commission.

Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde...: Life Stories About Food

(Contributor)

These stories come from the unique and festive Louisiana monologue event about the universal passion for food. Fifty original essays by chefs, restaurant owners, business owners, waiters, and more are accompanied by fun photographs of monologue subjects, such as beloved restaurants, memorable pies, and food-loving family members. It all started with Café Du Monde, the place you always go for comfort food.
