New Orleans Jazz Fest and Crawfish Talk
Today is the last day of Jazz Fest 2014, and I did not go this year. Just too much on my plate, I guess.
As I mentioned last week, Jazz Fest is the preeminent spring fun-in-the-sun event in the south, and Jazz Fest features the best festival food on the planet… in addition to the awesome music. It’s fun!
If, like me, you find that you can’t go to Jazz Fest this year either, don’t fret. You can listen to Jazz Fest online as it broadcasted live on WWOZ. And while you are chilling to the smooth sounds coming to you from the Big Easy, get in the kitchen and make one of these classic Jazz Fest dishes. If you can’t get crawfish, no problem. For most recipes you can substitute crawfish with shrimp.
