Really enjoyed our class and the folks we were seated with. We liked hearing the historical side of the local food. Excited to prepare the gumbo for my family at home! No more Zateran's for me. We will probably do this again our next visit....More

Loved the cooking session. Diane was very personable and friendly. She also gave inside tips on cooking. I really enjoyed this class as it was my first time there. I will definitely be back.

Good fun! I thought it was a bit weird that the chef wasn't cooking to the recipes he gave us. He basically said the recipes were bad, and that he was going to cook his way. We had a great time though.

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

It was certainly one of our favorites activities, in New Orleans, too. Dining in New Orleans is always a treat and it was fun to learn how to prepare some classic dishes. I think you will find a beverage you will enjoy.

The next couple of days were spent walking, walking and more walking! Around every corner is something special; an amazing street musician (a violinist and guitarist that were out of this world!), a bookstore so packed with interesting books that you could barely squeeze by them, a delicious snack of pralines (New Orleans School of Cooking had the best ones in my opinion - nice and thin and the chocolate ones were to die for!), or another balcony with iron work worthy of an art gallery and...More

pat, a beautiful TR. So glad to hear you had such a great time! We saw Manson with his Boa (he was bathing the boa in the fountain at Latrobe Park! I think the boa was more interested in the rats that hide underneath it!) Sorry you missed Uncle Sam, but Pork Chop and his friends are cool. We were joking about tourists coming for the first time and saying "wow, I didn't know New Orleans had a beach!" Granted, I've never seen the Mississippi so low! Ann came into Michael's class to tell us a...More
