The New Orleans Roadfood Festival, which has become FOODFEST: America's Hometown Eats, will kick off this year on Friday night, March 28, with a unique, limited-attendance party.
The evening is titled "America's Hometown SWEETS." Its goal is to honor the nation's best chocolates, cookies, candies, cakes, pies, donuts, cupcakes, fritters, and fudges.
In the adventuresome spirit of the weekend's FOODFEST, it will bring the best sweets from all over the country to New Orleans (and, of course, include local greats,too!), giving guests an unprecedented opportunity to sample, compare, and contrast regional taste in all those things that ring the chimes of a sweet tooth.
Included among the goodies will be Royers Round Top Pies, Moonshine cake from Virginia, Whoopie pies from Maine, the city's best pralines, smores, and plenty of beverages like egg creams, and cofee cabinets.
The (non-edible) highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Roadfood Blue Plate Award to a chef who has made a unique contribution to America's regional food.
