FoodFest brings together chefs and cooks from all over the United States in order to celebrate regional, hometown eats. This weekend-long festival highlights the delicious, informal fare found in local cafes and city neighborhoods, seafood shacks, barbecue joints, food trucks, and casual bistros.
During this event, cooks from all over the country head to New Orleans to dish up their regional delicacies. At FoodFest, you can find anything and everything from New England clam chowder to Houston tamales to Memphis barbecue to Kentucky sweet tea and mint juleps. It’s all about great American classics, cooked and served by chefs that not only love food, but love what it says about our culture and upbringing.
Bring your appetite!
