We had a BLAST at our cooking demo. Chef Kevin ("Big Kev") kept us entertained while demonstrating how to make gumbo, jambalaya, bananas foster, and pralines--all of which we were able to enjoy once he was done cooking (with Abita beer, ice tea, and/or lemonade)! Kevin has a BIG personality and he definitely made the experience such a fun one.... More

I took the Sunday hands-on cooking class and it was great fun! I love Louisiana food so thought I'd sign up to learn some of the secrets of Southern cooking! We made crawfish pie, pecan pie, veal, ratatouille, stuffing. All was delicious. Everything was prepared so you only have to do the cooking. Stations are set up for two people.... More

So much fun! I was in a group of 3 guys & 2 girls that went, we all enjoyed it. Excellent food to sample. Recipes to write some helpful tips & notes on. Only downside -their recipes use their spice mixes. So if you want to make jumbalya at home from their recipe you need to buy their seasoning, either... More

Love this place. Whether you do the retail shop or visit the cooking school - this is worth a trip on your next New Orleans vacation. They make the creamiest, most delicious pralines in New Orleans - and it's really fun to pick up some cooking tips even while on vacation. Fun stop!

Chef Jeff lead us through a number of Louisana dishes. They would be easy to prepare at home. The Chef had many funny stories while he prepared the meal. It was fun to sit with others while eating and listen to other life experiences. A really great time!

I went to a morning cooking demonstration today. Harriet was the chef instructor. She made the most delicious food as we all watched her prepare it. She was engaging and funny as she went through each step of preparing. Corn and crab bisque, shrimp creole, bananas foster and pralines. She was very down to earth and always gave helpful hints....

This was probably my favorite part of the trip!!! We did an afternoon demo class, and it was wonderful! Chef Julie was great, we lucked out and had great company at our table to share the meal with and talk to....and the kitchen staff, AMAZING! Those gentlemen were so kind and attentive. Don't let the website fool you, when it... More
