Got a chance to hang with Jane and Michael
Stern, authors of the original and classic Roadfood.
Calvin Trillin whetted my appetite, but the Stern's gave me the
inspiration to seek out and appreciate Roadfood.
The Louisiana Roadfood Festival ran along
Royal Street in New Orleans' French Quarter. The focus was
on all of Louisiana - a great chance to taste specialties from
all over the state - alligator sausage, meat pies, flavored sno
balls, gumbos, jambalayas. It's all good.
Saturday night - a crawfish boil out in the
bayous. Vats of shrimp and crawfish, a whole hog smoked
and dressed, corn, potatoes, jambalaya and great cajun dance
Word is the festival will be back in 2010.
