We were a group of 10 friends in NOLA for the weekend, and wanted to experience some authentic New Orleans cooking...and we certainly did at the New Orleans School of Cooking! Harriett was not only an extraordinary chef, but a comedian on top of it....More

We had a great time learning about Louisiana cooking. The food was delicious and the chef was entertaining. The Abita beer was nice, too.

I went to a cooking demo, and, although I will probably never make the things we learned to make (crab/corn bisque, shrimp creole, pralines, and bananas foster), the time spent watching was thoroughly enjoyable. Luckily, my name was not too far down on the list...More

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

Which Cooking Demonstration? (8 Replies)
Would you go to New Orleans School of Cooking or Crescent City Cooks? We are just about equal distance from either of these.

Okay, Tuesday night . same scenario. We're watching CNN and there is a faint knock on the door again. 3champ jumps up and runs over to the door and opens it, again no one.

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
