Creole Tomato Festival/NoLa Seafood Festival
My husband and i will be in New Orleans this weekend for our 7th visit. We usually go to JazzFest but couldn't this year and we've always wanted to experience New Orleans when there isn't something big going on. I expect the feel of the city will be very different, and we're looking forward to that.
The Zydeco Festival is what compelled us to choose this weekend and I see that these 2 food festivals are happening too. I've read somewhere that restaurants feature Creole tomatoes around this time. Does anyone have opinions about the wonderfulness of these famed tomatoes?
They are meatier than regular tomatoes, have considerably less gelatinous matter and are very flavorful.
they are good tomatoes - no doubt about it - and you'll be able to sample some great creative dishes offered by some of the best cooks in the city
the best part is they'll be fesitval sized servings/prices so you'll be able to try many items
the only tomatoes that I prefer are san marzanos and my absolute favorite, the Jersey tomato
