I brought my sister and her friends here for her bachelorette party. It was a great experience, the instructor was a hilarious woman, saucy, sassy and all of the above. We really enjoyed learning about the history of New Orleans, the culture and the history of its food. She demo'ed three dishes, a shrimp and artichoke soup (which I promptly came home and made again), crawfish étouffée and pralines. Everything was delicious informative and fun. People definitely came back up for seconds and the local beer was delicious! A must do if you're in town, you won't regret it!

Didn't know what to expect but it was a real cool experience! Chef Austin was a great instructor. Had some good drinks, actually made some awesome gourmet food for brunch. The gift shop is pretty cool too!

I highly recommend this class, Chef Austin was superb (very knowledgable). We learned, we cooked, we drank and we created an excellent gourmet meal ourselves that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a great time!

What a great morning cooking brunch and then sitting down to enjoy it. Our chef Sarah helped make the experience fun and provided interesting historical facts about both the dishes we were making and the area. Go hungry!

Michael our chef was an excellent teacher with good communication skills. He weaved the history of Louisiana and New Orleans into the story of the food he was preparing. All served up with a good portion of humour. On our session we made Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines. The samples of the food were tasty and good lunch sized portions. The food was served with a choice of beer, lemonade, water and iced tea. The connected shop sold all you might need to replicate the dishes including spices and file. If we return to Nola we would go again to a different session. We will be trying out the recipes when we get home.
