The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Lots of fun and good food

Crishelle was pleasant and helpful when we inquired about classes and when we returned to register. She greeted us like old friends when we arrived for the class and Chef Michael entertained and instructed us well. Food was delicious and overall a great way to spend the morning in NoLa.

Outstanding Cooking Experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Tough we have been here before for the demo cooking school, we wanted to try something different and unique and did the hands on cooking experience. Other than doing the prep work, you do all the cooking of a three course meal. We chose a menu of Crawfish Pie, Seafood Gumbo and Bananas Foster Crepes. Cindy was our outstanding instructor along with 2 fine assistants. She guided us through each of the dishes ensuring everything was done correctly and improvised when needed. You were given recipes for each of the dishes and also had a good selection of drinks to enjoy during the cooking process including Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas, and Abita. At the conclusion of each dish you had ample time to enjoy the fruit of your effort. At no time did we feel like we were being rushed. Looking forward to returning to try my hand with other courses.

Highlight of the Trip
Oct 2021
A friend and I recently attended a Hands-On cooking class with Chef Eric and his assistant Whitney. We had the best time and it was one of my favorite New Orleans experiences to date. Chef Eric was a master in sharing his technical knowledge as well as the history of the foods we we were preparing. Everything we needed was at our fingertips and the hospitality was unmatched. We loved everything we cooked and ate, and got to take home a few things from the store at the end of the class. I would 100% recommend this class to anyone. I look forward to a future trip when I can take another class. This is great for people of any age, and fun for a couple of group of friends. Do not hesitate to book an experience at New Orleans School of Cooking!

My wife ‘dragged’ me to the school and I am glad she did. Quite possibly my favorite experience in New Orleans. Highly recommended!

A memorable visit
Oct 2021
I feel bad for not remembering our instructors name, but he was very friendly and broke down all of the instructions in an easy way. I was only in town for three days, and I'm glad I spent part of one here.

Wish we had done this sooner
Oct 2021
We really enjoyed the class and I now have the confidence to make a few classics such a s gumbo and jambalaya. My husband rarely ever cooks but there he was having a great time. We both wish we had taken a class sooner and since we usually head down to NO once a year we will make it an annual thing to do when we are there.

Great time!!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Loved this experience! We had Chef Ricardo and we had an exceptional time. I like to do cooking classes everywhere I travel and this was just a relaxed and lovely set up. We all had to be vaccinated or have a negative test, so we could take masks off. However, Ricardo kept his on, stayed professional and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend this activity.
