The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation presents the incomparable Patti Austin in an intimate evening of song at NOCCA on May 18. Austin is known as a sophisticated vocalist whose style is steeped in jazz.
We came, we ate, we Jazz Fest-Ed! Closing out the last day of the festival was the sounds of The Neville Brothers, Bo Dollis and the Wild Magnolias and Rockin Dopsie, Jr. and the Zydeco Twisters. We ate our last bite of crawfish strudel, alligator pie, oyster bisque and mango freeze.
Whether you're serving plain old chicken or making a crawfish étouffée, try fancifying the rice below your favorite main course. Or, think about substituting your favorite stuffing (crabs? turkey? pork chops?) with this rice dressing recipe.
We thought we'd be getting rain, but aside from a little sprinkle (and misters all around the festival), the Jazz Fest was saved for another day from the Jazz Fest curse (the curse: it rains at least one day of the festival).
