Any Jazz Fest goer knows what its like to miss crawfish bread. At one time you could only find it at Jazz Fest and it was one of the food booths you raced to when the gate opened at 11am. And oh my….it was soooo good cause you waited a whole year for it!
Over the years the local restaurants have put their own touch on the recipe and serve it all year round…… all good….. but just doesn’t come close. Maybe its the anticipation.
