The 2009 Louisiana RoadFood Festival – www.LouisianaRoadFoodFestival.com
Louisiana’s Legendary Roadside Eats in the Heart of New Orleans
A weekend to celebrate and savor the delicious diversity of Louisiana food
Saturday & Sunday, April 4-5, 2009
300-600 Royal St., New Orleans
Relish fabled glories of the Louisiana table, including:
- The world's longest po-boy
- Bayou boudin sausage
- Cane River meat pies
- Catfish and hushpuppies
- Gateau sirop and bourbon bread pudding
- Jambalaya, crawfish pie, file gumbo
- and much, much more!
Roadfood.com and the Louisiana Office of Tourism and Tabasco 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.
Admission is free; proceeds from food and beverage sales go to participating restaurants, including New Orleans' own Cafe Reconcile, which provides at-risk kids the opportunity to learn the food service business.
Host Hotel: The Monteleone Hotel
