What a wonderful activity for people of all ages. Our chef was Ben what an awesome young man. He made our experience at the New Orleans School of Cooking so enjoyable with his stories and his true passion for cooking New Orleans style. Our menu consisted of Corn & Crab Bisque, Chicken Étouffée and Pralines. This should be on your bucket list of things to do it was a great experience!

Our chef was Pat, she was very knowledgeable and began with an overview of the history of food in New Orleans. Then the real fun began, she demonstrated gumbo, jambalaya, and pralines. She had a wonderful style and great interaction with her students. The best part, of course, was eating the meal she prepared. I am hoping that my wife and I will be able to replicate her meal when we get home.

Chef Kevin was one of the most entertaining people I have ever seen. Funny, instructive, and of course the many delicious New Orleans treats just enhanced the experience (gumbo, red beans on rice, pecan pie, and pralines).

We had a great time while at the New Orleans School of cooking. It was a great way to spend a morning, eating food and getting a New Orleans history lesson. As an added bonus, we had pitchers of beer on the table.

I was part of the demonstration class one evening while touring New Orleans with the Road Scholar program. The class lasted a few hours and was lots of fun and informative. The demonstration was easy to follow and our Chef Pat was a good entertainer and engaged the group. During our demonstration Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, Shrimp Creole, bananas foster and pralines were all made. The food was very good and filling. This was a great activity while in New Orleans and showcases the food, history and culture of this wonderful city. There is also a shop located with the school that sells a number of cooking items and also their pralines at a fairly reasonable price. Don't miss this activity, especially if you enjoy food and cooking!
