ENHANCE THE NEW ORLEANS JAZZ AND HERITAGE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE WITH THE MOST DELICIOUS FOOD IT HAS TO OFFER

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is known best for its fantastic music lineups. However, the festival also has some of the best food vendors in the entire country. Most of the dishes are different from what people consider the norm of festival food, and with over 70 food vendors every year, there is something to make anyone’s mouth water.

Crawfish Bread

Panorama Foods provides its services at Jazz Fest and specializes in its world-famous crawfish bread. It is the perfect grab-and-go snack for those craving delicious crawfish. The spicy and saucy crawfish tails with melted cheese are grilled to perfection on freshly baked bread.

Pheasant, Quail, and Andouille Gumbo

Prejean’s Restaurant’s booth is the place to go if someone is in the mood for a hearty bowl of unique gumbo. Its gumbo is not the norm for a Louisiana meal, made of pheasant, quail, and andouille sausage, but it is a Jazz Fest delicacy.

Fried Pork Chop Sandwich

Ms. Linda’s Catering offers Jazz Fest one of the most satisfying sandwiches ever, a bone-in-fried pork chop sandwich with a slathering of mayo between two slices of toasted bread. A bone-in sandwich might scare some people off, but don’t let it get in the way of a delicious Jazz Fest classic.

Trout Baquet

The Trout Baquet, provided by Lil’ Dizzy’s, is on the fancier side of Jazz Fest food. The dish consists of a large portion of pan-fried trout and a buttered heap of lump Louisiana crabmeat. It is garnished with lemon to add flavor and has a side of buttered crunchy french bread.

Pecan Catfish Meunière

Gallagher’s Grill hits Jazz Fest with Pecan Catfish Meunière, a flavorful dish that is yet another example of upscale food at Jazz Fest. It consists of freshly fried catfish topped with a decadent Meunière sauce and garnished with sweet pecan crumbles.

The Jazz Fest Experience

There is nothing like the tradition of Jazz Fest. Its fantastic music selection and lineups are second to none, and the experience is only enhanced when paired with these amazing treats and delicacies.
