We had a great time endless drinks, food was great our chef got too excited with the garlic , but nethertheless we had seconds. Generous portions , our chef did seem a bit self indulgent but no serious complaints.

Very entertaining instructor and good info on making a roux. However he doesn't know much more about cooking or recipes. Gumbo tasted more like garlic sauce than what gumbo should taste like. Try Crescent City Cooks if you want good food. I've done both and will definitely go back to Crescent City cooks next visit.

We went to class last Friday demonstrated by Ann. We thoroughly enjoyed her stories. She also gave a little history lesson about how New Orleans cuisine came about. The food itself was terrific as well. I believe they always demo the same recipes (jambalaya, gumbo, and pralines). There was more than enough to go around and even seconds and thirds... More

I was surprised by the amount of history that I learned about Louisiana. This was a great class, with a great teacher. You don't actually cook, but you do get to eat. They also give you the recipes, to all the meals cooked in front of you. Very nice class but it's very hard to find with a GPS. So... More

If you want to savor good authentic very very rich New Orleans cuisine, try a cooking class--not inexpensive and not for those on a diet--but enjoyable and enhanced by Sarah's knowledge of facts about Cajun, Creole cooking and the history of the area. The staff was nice and appreciates a gratuity; they prepare all of the ingredients and clean up... More

Is there any possible place better to learn Cajun/Creole cooking? After taking in the cooking demonstration (complete with discount coupon) and learning the background to the food we can say no. The portions and beer distribution were generous. Participants get to take home recipes of all items cooked and are given a discount for class packs
