Got to participate in some hands-on cooking southern style for the morning. Our instructor and chef Sarah took us through the paces as our teams of 2 made a number of dishes including a yummy crab bisque and bananas foster. Once completed we all sat down to enjoy our work. Was great fun. Highly recommend it, if u enjoy cooking.

After a week of fabulous eating in New Orleans, we finished our vacation by learning the techniques and methods to bring that culinary experience home. Our instructor, Sarah, was an experienced New Orleans restaurant chef who brought her love of cooking to our class. Everything was very well done - aprons for everyone to take home, beer and wine, all... More

I don't cook or watch cooking shows and expected to "suffer" through the experience with my wife. I was in for a very pleasant surprise! Chef Michael made the class entertaining, informative, and fun! We were there with a group of 12 and it was a blast! I would definitely do it again. Big thanks to Chief Michael! Lee B.... More

I attended a demonstration class last week -- it was well worth the time & effort. Chef Saundra, whose expertise as both Chef and Storyteller, ensured we all learned a lot and had a great time doing so.

Watched and learned how to make Gumbo, Jambalaya, and pralines. Was very affordable and got to eat each one along with lemonade, ice tea, or abita beer! Shopped the store for supplies afterwards. Would recommend for something different to do!

We stopped in this shop while sightseeing in the French Quarter. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and they had plenty of free samples. We sampled pralines at numerous places while in NOLA, and these were my favorite of all of them. Ended up buying a dozen and ate them all before we ever left to go home!

My husband and I attended a demonstration class here on 9/9/14 and we were impressed! I had my doubts before attending, as I thought it would be boring, but I was totally wrong--it was so much fun! The 2 1/2 hr. class began with a lesson on the history of cooking in New Orleans, which, of course, includes the history... More

We joined Sandra for a morning class to make shrimp and asparagus soup, crawfish étouffée, pralines, and bread pudding. Other than he rude, hungover people who showed up late to class, the experience was the best in New Orleans. Sandra took us trough the history of he people in New Orleans as it relates to the various food found here.... More

I hate cooking! BUT, this was such a great experience! We had a teacher called Harriet. She showed us how to make gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. I have never had this much fun in a kitchen before. She was great and you got to eat what is made in the class. There's ice tea and beer to boot!... More
