I've attended many cooking classes before, and style can vary wildly. The class we attended was an observation, including dinner & drinks. The chef was great. She was funny, very knowledgeable about New Orleans cooking, and was quick to share tips and tricks for making these recipes at home. The class moved at a good pace---something was always going on,... More

I brought my sister and her friends here for her bachelorette party. It was a great experience, the instructor was a hilarious woman, saucy, sassy and all of the above. We really enjoyed learning about the history of New Orleans, the culture and the history of its food. She demo'ed three dishes, a shrimp and artichoke soup (which I promptly... More

Didn't know what to expect but it was a real cool experience! Chef Austin was a great instructor. Had some good drinks, actually made some awesome gourmet food for brunch. The gift shop is pretty cool too!

I highly recommend this class, Chef Austin was superb (very knowledgable). We learned, we cooked, we drank and we created an excellent gourmet meal ourselves that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a great time!

What a great morning cooking brunch and then sitting down to enjoy it. Our chef Sarah helped make the experience fun and provided interesting historical facts about both the dishes we were making and the area. Go hungry!

Michael our chef was an excellent teacher with good communication skills. He weaved the history of Louisiana and New Orleans into the story of the food he was preparing. All served up with a good portion of humour. On our session we made Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines. The samples of the food were tasty and good lunch sized portions. The... More

This 2.5 hour experience was a good mix of hands on cooking, time for socializing with our group, and learning about the culinary history of the area and the ingredients we were using. Came hungry and left full. Chef Austin was full of energy and passion for the culinary arts. He made sure we all had a great time and... More

* I appreciated the history of New Orleans cooking; however the first hour was a history lecture before any culinary discussion or cooking began. Our class ran over by nearly an hour after the scheduled finish time, entirely due to the lecturing. I learned a lot about Creole culture. * We were given printed recipes which is very handy, however... More

Took class not knowing what to expect. Turned out to be very informative and entertaining . Class is taught in a similar setup of a tv cooking show. Very good teacher and the food was also very good and very easy. You'll be cooking like a New Orleans native, no matter where you live.

First of all, I am now able to properly make delicious pralines thanks to the New Orleans School of Cooking. I've yet to make gumbo and jambalaya from scratch, but will muster up the courage and get to those soon... I attended the 10:00 AM "Demonstration Class" with a couple of friends on March 17, 2015 and was blown away... More
