   The occasion?  The fifth annual New Orleans Food Festival held June 30-31.
   _"The Originator"_
   Although several state restaurant groups currently sponsor similar spectacles, the Louisiana Assn claims to be the originator of the food festival concept.  It ran the first feast in '68, held outdoors at Jackson Square and Pirate's Alley in the city's French Quarter.  Expectations that year were for 3,000 participants--12,000 came.
