The husband and I were looking for something to do our last day in New Orleans after our cruise. Found a flyer as well as the reviews on Trip Advisor. Was a fun class, and we learned a great deal about the area and the food. Would definitely recommend.

They have two types of classes: one for participation, the other, which we attended, we watched and ate the results. they have menues of what foods they are preparing so you may choose your... More

If you're looking for a great "hands on" cooking experience this one is for you. After a brief orientation you're introduced to your cooking station that has everything set up for your creole cooking class. Ours had us preparing crawfish pie, veal des Allemands, bayou ratatouille, and pecan pie with whipped cream. After preparing these fantastic dishes, you enjoy a... More

Three of us signed up for the hands-on class with Chef Austin. We had a fantastic night and met some great new friends. We had attended the Barbershop Harmony mid-winter convention and were happy to meet 2 other barbershop singers on the course. We laughed, sang, taught a "tag" cooked and ate our own gourmet creation. Definitely a highlight of... More

My husband and I were in town for a convention and only had a few days for sightseeing. I read wonderful reviews of the New Orleans School of Cooking, although most of them were for the demonstration classes. Our only available time was when they offered the hands-on class. It sounded like fun, though more expensive. Well, it was the... More

My wife and I attended the cooking demonstration with Sandra. Sandra is a treasure. She blended her love of cooking with a history of New Orleans. As we watched her cook and listened to her stories we learned how the food of New Orleans evolved. As soon as she finished a dish, staff plated it and we got to taste... More

So I was in New Orleans for work. As a team building experience our work hired the school to host us for an event. It was so fun that I took my wife there as a date. If your looking for something fun, out of the normal dinner and drinks, do this for sure. It's awesome... Worth every penny. I'll... More

We had such a great time listening to Anne share her stories and some history of New Orleans food. We watched the presentation of gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. The gumbo was by far my favorite dish from the experience. I am definitely going to make it when we get home.
