What: Catfish almondine
Where: Food Area I
Why: Fried catfish is a staple across the South, but add almonds in a gleaming, buttery, lemony sauce and you’ve turned it into a Creole classic. This longtime standby from Stuf Hapn Event Catering is another example of a Jazz Fest dish that would feel right at home at a nice neighborhood restaurant.
