The talented cooking school staff provide an informative, funny, interactive experience as they demonstrate how to make some of New Orleans' most famous food dishes... and... More

Tom was our host chef. we learned how to make Corn and Crab Bisque, Shrimp Creole, Pralines and Bananas Foster. It was an awesome experience - 2 1/2 hours of learning, tasting, and listening to fantastic history of New Orleans and Louisana cooking - highly recommend this when in New Orleans

The food was terrific but it was the two hour history lesson from Chef Sandra that was the highlight for me!!! She was witty and informative and this, combined with some awesome food, that will have me signing up again next time I'm in New Orleans

We had a great time - 25 of us went to see a cooking demonstration here. Our chef, Anne, was perfect. Her food was amazing, but it was her attitude that was the best. She told us stories about New Orleans and the history of food. She was like a creole grandma with an attitude. She was friendly and down... More

Class was excellent! Also got a history lesson about the food and the culture that it came from. One of the best gumbos I have ever had! Hate that we missed the red beans & rice class!

This place was a blast! We had such a great time with Anne! She gave us a great, and at times, hilarious lesson on how New Orleans grew to be. She cooked us great food gumbo, jambalaya and pralines - which filled us! The beer was local and a nice touch too. This experience is for even the novice of... More

WE LOVED this. I have been to other cooking demonstrations where they serve tastes. This was GREAT. The food was all excellent and served in good quantities, not just tastes. (Which was good since we hadn't even managed breakfast by 2pm when it started!) Michael made gumbo, jambalaya and pralines. He was great with history and stories. The food was... More

We took a demonstration cooking class with Big Kevin. None of us really like to cook, so this was a first for us. Kevin was very witty and kept us laughing throughout. In addition to the recipes & info on the dishes he was creating, he gave us wonderful tips that are useful in everyday cooking. He cooked a full... More
