So Much Fun

Loved the class, loved the people, and still make the recipes. Great shopping at the store too. Buy the Hunter's Game Rub. You will use it for everything.

You get to watch a renowned chef prepare real Cajun dishes and then you get to eat them! I wasn't shy about the eating part of the program. You will also receive the recipes, which I came home and prepared. All three dishes were perfect, gumbo, jambalaya and pralines.

Definitely not what I was expecting, sitting watching someone cooking, but it really was great. Jambalaya and Gumbo was being taught the day we went, and OMG it was far better than any food I tasted anywhere else in NO. And to sit there watching them cook, with commentary on the history of the food, of NO, and of them... More

This is a great, fun and educational experience. Attending a class at the school is just one of the many things to do in NO and a must! You get not only an education about the food but the local culture and history as well. The food served is SO good too! Keep in mind you actually are not cooking,... More

My husband and I were perusing the little kitchen shop in front of Cookin' Cajun, when we just happened to run across this little cooking school. To our good fortune we discovered that after the morning classes conclude, they transform themselves into a cafe which serves a limited menu of Cajun fare. I'm here to tell you, although this food...

Even if you already know how to make a gumbo or a jambalaya, you’re going to love taking a class at ‘Cajun Cookin.’ You go for the food, the fun, and the people. The day I was there, teacher Karin and manager Sandra traded banter, told funny stories, and shared Katrina hurricane horror stories while cooking. Sandra told us of... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
