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.

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.

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
