Had I known about this, I would have yearned to go. Maybe it'll get repeated next year.
Roadfood.com and the Louisiana Culinary Trails are bringing sixteen of the state's best restaurant cooks to the French Quarter, setting them loose to make their signature dishes for visitors to enjoy. Festival fun takes place in a milieu that evokes the adventure of Louisiana culinary trails and includes strolling brass bands and soloists, panel discussions and ad hoc debates about the nation's outstanding Roadfood, and the camaraderie of like-minded foodies from around the nation and the world.
You could travel for miles and weeks throughout Louisiana and you'd still never discover all the great eats visitors will find in one weekend along 4 city blocks in the heart of the French Quarter! Here is an opportunity for locals as well as travelers to sample fare that is exotic indeed to appetites from Minnesota or California, and to discover exquisite specialties little-known even to Louisianians.
