America’s Top Food Festivals

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Cheap travel options, including cheap airplane tickets, discount hotel rooms, discount travel deals, and cheap vacation packages have made travel affordable to the masses. When trying to settle on a destination, you should consider checking out some of America’s top food festivals.

Food festivals offer a chance to explore a new place and indulge in some fantastic food. Anthony Anderson, a guest judge on “Iron Chef” has enjoyed the following food festivals:

• New Orleans Wine and Food Experience is where participants can sample dishes from dozens of restaurants promoting their food at the convention center. Crawfish, shrimp, and other seafood from local waters stood out.

• World Championship Steak Cook-off at the Magnolia Blossom Festival in Magnolia, Arkansas is held every May and is where you can sample and learn how to cook a good steak from many of the dozens of vendors. Learn their searing process, including a reverse sear: smoking the meat first and then searing it.

• Huckleberry Festival in Trout Creek, Montana, held this year August 8th through the 10th, includes jam, jelly, and dessert competitions, as well as a guaranteed to be messy pie eating contest. Mornings commence with huckleberry pancake breakfasts in the Fire Hall, as well as a parade and a Huckleberry Hound dog agility competition.

• Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival in Fernandina Beach, Florida is a May event where you can have shrimp any way you can think of, including fried, grilled and broiled. During the festival participants celebrate the area’s marauding heritage with a pirate battle. Shrimp dishes came on kabobs with strawberries, shrimp gumbo, shrimp pie, low country boil with shrimp, as well as many other varieties.

• Texas Crab Festival in Crystal Beach, Texas is a Mother’s Day weekend celebration timed for the soft shell crab season. Crab is prepared in many different ways including a crab guacamole dish, a garlic, butter and crab rice with crab meatballs wrapped in bacon, and a crab pie, as well as a gumbo cook-off.

• Ribfest is a Chicago tradition held in June where 50,000 pounds of pork are consumed in a single weekend. There is nothing at the festival but endless meat and smokers lined down the street.

• Blue Ridge BBQ Festival can be found in June in Tyron, N.C. There you will find plenty of smoking pits as well as people cooking duck confit with bacon.

• L.A. Taco Festival in Boyle Heights, California, is an annual event scheduled on August 16th this year that attracts some of the top purveyors in East Los Angeles and supports a charity that finds housing for homeless young people. Musical entertainment is provided and while tacos are available for only a couple of dollars, a $45 premium all you can eat ticket includes VIP seating and tequila tasting.

• Long Grove Strawberry Festival in Long Grove, Illinois is an early summer fruit fest. Dishes range from simple ones to others that had strawberry ravioli with tasty cream sauce. An unbelievably tender steak sandwich was offered that came with strawberry salsa.

• Rockwood Ice Cream Festival in Wilmington, Delaware is where ice cream lovers can find scores of flavors, vendors, dairies, and restaurants. There is nothing simple about ice cream at this festival. One of the more decadent presentations was a homemade caramel corn version with bacon on top of a sundae.
