JazzFest, New Orleans – finally!


It’s been a year since the last JazzFest in New Orleans. Or, in other words, since my last Gumbo. To be exact, it’s not just a Gumbo. It’s a Pheasant, Quail and Andouille Gumbo. I know there are many vegetarians reading this blog, but for those of you who like fine and delicate meat, this dish is perfect. It will also be my first dish of the day. The first one of a very, very long list.
