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?
