We'd like to extend a shoutout to our French Quarter Fest broadcast sponsor: Zatarain's, which has been made in New Orleans, by and for New Orleanians, since 1889. Here are their thoughts on food, music, and festing:
If there were an official food of festival season in New Orleans, it would be jambalaya, hands down. Festivals in South Louisiana are all about music and food.
And just like every fest has a different music lineup, they all offer a different menu of culinary delights. But at just about any fest you attend, you’ll be able to get a bowl of jambalaya.
There's a reason. Jambalaya is the perfect festival food. It’s easy to make for a crowd and it’s packed with flavor, not to mention hearty enough to soak up beer and keep you dancing.
In New Orleans, festival season represents everything we are as a community: our spirit, our soul, our funk, our flavor. And when New Orleanians want to create a festival vibe at home, there’s a good chance the flavors of Zatarain’s and the sounds of WWOZ are at the center of the party.
Since 1889, Zatarain’s has been made in New Orleans by New Orleanians for New Orleanians. And WWOZ has been providing the city with a soundtrack for decades. It only makes sense that these two institutions would partner to celebrate the defining expression of New Orleans food and music: festival season.
So let’s get together and enjoy the best time of the year. Let’s get ready for great sounds and great flavors. In other words, Let’s Fest!
