Kevin kept us in stitches while cooking a fine meal. It is so entertaining as you sit in a restaurant setting viewing every phase of the cooking. You get the written recipes to take with you. We had shrimp/artichoke soup, crawfish etouffee, pralines, and a truly fabulous decadent bread pudding. Also served is Abita beer, water, iced tea, and lemonade.... More

We attended a class to learn how to cook gumbo, jambalaya and pralines. In the end you eat them for lunch. The teacher was fun and the food was awesome, definetly the best jambalaya I ate in New Orleans! A great deal ($28)! Highly recommended activity!!!

Group of 20 could not have had more fun eating, drinking and bantering with each other. Chef Michael set the tone and we all had a great experience learning the local dishes and participating in the preparation and enjoyment of a great meal. Staff was awesome and we highly recommend to anyone looking to do something out of the ordinary... More

Just got finished with a demonstration class at the New Orleans school of cooking. Harriet was our instructor and she kept us laughing all 2 1/2 hours. We learned to make jambalaya, gumbo, pralines, and bread pudding. Of course we got to taste it all and it was delicious! I would highly recommend this experience for adults.

Really enjoyed both the food, cooking tips, and fun banter of the chef. We had great seating due to early reservation. Their pralines are delicious and available in the shop. Great group activity. Come hungry!

Kevin not only taught us about cajun and creole cooking, but entertained us along the way. The food he cooked as part of the demonstration was very good and flavorful. It was a fun way to spend the morning

My husband and I attended one of the demos at the New Orleans School of Cooking today. It was one of the best attractions we have ever attended! Not only did we learn some new recipes and eat some great food, we also learned some wonderful history about the food and the area. Michael did our demo today and he... More

Loved being able to learn some local recipes. The chef was delightful and I even got to lick the bowl full of pecans, brown sugar and cream.

Almost didn't do this because 'hands on' class wasn't available at our time and didn't want to just sit through a demonstration. But I'm so glad I did- it made me a fan of Cajun Creole cooking. Other places around (I.e. Daisy Dukes) do not do this style of cooking justice. There was no seafood used (unlike most Gumbo/ Jambalaya... More
