Learn the History of New Orleans from Ann

Ann was a great story teller about New Orleans and its history. Plus she cooked some good gumbo, shrimp creole, pralines and bananas foster. Well worth the time.

We did the demo class. It was fun. Harriet was entertaining and hilarious. It's a nice mix of entertainment, eating and learning. If you are a serious cook dying to lean new techniques, this is not the place to go. Even so, it was a fun morning

We bought the morning cooking class/demo which turned into a real delight. We arrived a little late and missed the beignets and coffee, but soon pitchers of Abiti beer were passed around. The "show" was a blast with the instructor-cum-stand-up-comic keeping up entertained. Through three courses and then praline dessert, all the prep work was done and we awaited a... More

The 3-1/2 hours class just flew by. Austin was a great instructor and our meal turned out perfect. I like the hands on because you will remember what you made so you can recreate it at home. I also spent a lot of money in the store because I felt so inspired after we were done. I highly recommend this... More

What a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. Our demonstration chef was "Big Kev" and not only was he a terrific cook and teacher but he was also very funny and entertaining. He cooked Gumbo, Jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. We were served biscuits(scones) and lemonade and coffee prior to the lesson. We had a beautiful lunch, with... More

Our chef was Toya Boudy and she was amazing! She needs to have her own cooking show. She was fun and informative and very approachable. We had several ladies from our conference who attended this class and I learned so much about what I was doing wrong when attempting to make a roux! Chef Toya's food was delish, too. Her... More

Our lovely hostess was hilarious, knowledgable, a true local, and certainly knows how to make a mean gumbo! We took the short 2-4pm course on gumbo, jambalaya and praline making. We got just enough history to understand all the influences that make up these traditional recipes, along with a step by step guide printed out and her demonstrating the key... More
