I went to 2 demonstration classes and 1 hands on class. I thoroughly enjoyed them all. I highly recommend them. The chefs talk about the history and the culture of the food, the city and it's inhabitants while cooking. I learned a lot and laughed a lot. Also, of course, enjoyed the food as you eat what was prepared in... More

I was very disappointed with my experience. I signed up on their website for what it said was a hands-on cooking class. I was so looking forward to trying my hand at cooking gumbo, jambalaya, etc. What I got was a long New Orleans history lesson and a cooking demonstration. It was not at all hands-on. When I asked to... More

I am a foodie and definitely wanted to have a cooking experience in New Orleans. We just took the basic demonstration class and it went far beyond my expectations. The demonstrator was fun, informative, and talked about the history of the people and the cooking. The food was excellent! And, I even made one of the dishes when I got... More

It was interesting to learn the history of the recipes cooked and to learn the chefs personal association with them. The setting was casual, relaxing and professional. There was plenty to sample. I thoroughly enjoyed my morning at the cooking school.

Took a class and was so surprised. The instructor is down to earth and explained every details. Really enjoy the experience. Everyone sits at round tables and you get to try everything that was made.Don't miss the chance if you enjoy cooking.
