This is always an interesting, fun and delicious experience. Kids and teens are not likely to enjoy it, however.

Our chef "Pat" was very knowledgeable. We were given the history of how food came to New Orleans. Although it did seem to go on a tad too long. Once she got cooking, it was great. She answered all questions without skipping a beat. I would definitely do this again.

Chef Mark was entertaining and enlightening. I would not think to pair fruit and pork with seafood stuffing. He was helpful with proper knife handling skills -as well flambe'. The food was the best I'd ever tasted - Kate Somers

A great way to learn history of the town and its food! Great demonstration of techniques and ingredients. Chef was fun and knowledgeable. We got plenty to eat! We attended the class with Jambalaya, Gumbo, Bread-pudding and Pralines. Also enjoyed the local beer. My husband even enjoyed it and loved learning the history of the town.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
