Love this place. This was my husband & my third time there. Besides the fact that it's great value $24 per person (you can get a $3 discount if you book on line which makes it only $21 for a meal and beer. The demonstration is very informative but the best part is Kevin's humor. This time we had the... More

We did the gumbo, jambalaya and pralines demonstration class. Our chef was funny, informative and added her personal touch to the recipes. Food was very good to! Overall a great experience, a fun way to get a global view of some new orleans classic and a great way to spend an afternoon. We did the class with our baby (4... More

Firstly, this is one of the best value venues I have ever attended. It had great atmosphere and Julie was fun and informative. She ensured that everyone at the table met each other. The recipes were available and there was some audience participation. You get to try the dishes cooked and it is a a big meal. Beer and biscuits... More

This was a great experience, learning a lot of history along with cooking. Can't wait to make pralines! Everything was so tasty!

Attended the class a while back. Great fun for budding cooks. Demonstration was entertaining and educational. You got to taste all the recipes cooked and received a copy to take home. Looking for a fun meal? Take the class and let the good food roll.

It was one ,if not the one of our best "things to do" when visiting New Orleans and we did everything. Kevin was fun from start to finish, food was excellent (and beverages). He is a class act. He autographed his cookbook for my wife and we looked through it on our flight home, ready to get our diploma when... More

I attended The New Orleans School of Cooking on November 16th and I am STILL thinking about it!!! Harriet, our instructor; taught us how to make jambalaya, gumbo, bread pudding, and pralines with so much fun and energy! She gave us an insight to her history in New Orleans as well as a history lesson about the city. I went... More

The meal preparation etc. was excellent, but we were expecting a little more local input from the chef during the demonstration. I gather he was new (possibly first time), so we probably would have enjoyed one of the more experienced chefs more (after reading previous reviews).

I love to learn while travelling and some things you just can't learn by reading a travel guide. The class was not hands on, but it was well set up for everyone in the room to see the instructor and the cook top, so we all felt that we took away some kitchen skills. While the three delicious dishes were... More

My husband and I went to the demonstration class and had a great time. Lots of good food and laughs. We had Big Kevin as our instructor. He was fantastic. Great food and fun. They send you on your way with delicious recipes to replicate at home. Highly recommend.
