Sample oyster recipes from more than 60 chefs using bivalves harvested by more than 30 growers around the country. They’ll be demos and workshops, live music, football tailgating and special events in the courtyard. In Lagniappe’s comprehensive guide, we offer interviews with the stars, chef biographies, a festival map and schedule and a feature about an innovative new recycling program that aims to fortify Alabama’s threatened natural oyster reefs.
