Pat, the chef and host, gives a history lesson on the evolution of New Orleans and its food culture. She cooks for us while she talks and we see everything through a clever setup of mirrors on the ceiling. She is funny and witty. Afterwards, we eat the food she prepared. VERY delicious! We leave with the recipes and good... More

You get to learn and hear tips to preparing several well know dishes in a intimate setting. The great part is having a lunch enjoying them as well. Loved the shop front that has many spices, etc, as well as other kitchen items and numerous gift items. I shipped gift packs and cooking school products !!

Our sales team had a private class with Chef Toya. Such fun and great bonding. Toya was engaging and very informative. We made a crab salad appetizer, gumbo, shrimp étouffée and strawberry crepes flambées. Food was delicious and it gave us a chance to interact in a creative non-business way. Highly recommend!

Although I didn't really learn much about cooking, it was really fun and our instructor, Harriet, was a hoot! She's a short, older lady with plenty of spunk and lots of funny stories! The food was good (especially the pralines - yum) and we even had one of your dished paired with a local beer. Great experience - I'd recommend... More

To make it very clear, this review is of the New Orleans School of Cooking's retail store located on St. Peter Street. We did not attend cooking classes so are unable to speak to their courses, which by all accounts are excellent. Apologies if this confuses the matter, however this is perhaps the first sub-3 star review I have ever... More

As part of our Family Reunion in New Orleans a group of 25 relatives attended a private cooking class at the New Orleans School of Cooking which is located in the French Quarter and convenient to parking. Kevin was our chef. He did a fabulous job making all feel welcome and kept us entertained with stories relating to local cooking... More

We spent a morning learning how to cook local fare like gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. Our teacher, Toya Boudy was phenomenal and the experience was exceptional. I'd recommend this as a must do if you're visiting New Orleans.

We've taken classes twice at the New Orleans School of Cooking, each with a different menu and hosted by a different chef - we loved both experiences. Not only is this a truly affordable lunch, complete with Abita Beer, these chefs have extensive knowledge of cooking AND history, presented with a wonderful, personal touch. We've enjoyed soup, local shrimp and... More

This is a sit back and enjoy kind of experience - with the occasional food or drink put in front of you. This is a fantastic way to learn about some traditional New Orleans food, whether you're an accomplished cook or not - you'll be entertained! If you can, get Big Kevin as your chef - he's absolutely hilarious! Also... More

I have left 2 reviews for this attraction already but want to leave a more current one because it is that good. We went on a Friday morning class, Ms Pat was the instructor she was very witty and charming and the dishes that she prepared were amazing. Go online and get your coupon, even if you want to go...
