Great value for the money. Cooking lesson, food tasting, NOLA history, local beer and fantastic chefs with personality to spare.
Excellent! We were so impressed with the history lesson! Great sense of humor..Food was fantastic! Thank you!
Both my husband and I enjoyed this class. Pat was a wonderful teacher of New Orleans food and history. One of the highlights of our trip. Go, you won't regret it.
Great experience ,, well worth giving it a try,, you get to eat local foods in a restaurant atmosphere. There is also hands on cooking classes as well
Brandon was our chef extraordinaire, sharing not only authentic gumbo, jambalaya and pralines but also a wealth of culture and history. Exceptional value. Don't miss cooking school of New Orleans.
Great time and great food. Pat made is absolutely wonderful. Would highly recommend it for anyone visiting New Orleans.
This class was so much fun! Chef Michael gave us a full history lesson as well as wonderful cooking tips! The food was amazing! The best gumbo I had the whole trip!
We attended the New Orleans Cooking class last week. It was so entertaining and the food was SO good. I highly recommend it.
We had a fun, educational, entertaining and delicious 2 hours. Had Gumbo, Jambolya and Pralines. Highly recommended .
I hope I spelled his name correctly. My favorite experience in NOLA and also my best meal! It was entertaining, informative and funny. If ever in NOLA again would take the hands on class. Well worth the price many times over.
This experience was worth every minute. Chef Matt was amazing and informational and the food and service were memorable.....Can't wait to get home and try these new recipes and spices on my friends and family.
My husband and I attended this cooking demonstration great information great food can't wait to take another class when we come back
What a wonderful experience! Anne was an outstanding host and cook and provided excellent history about New Orleans! Food was outstanding! One of the best experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class. Don't miss this one!
We learned so much from this demonstration about Creole and Cajun cooking. First lesson, how to make a roux and the uses of various roux. Excellent. We got to see how Gumbo, Jambalaya, and Pralines are made, and then we got to sample them. I also bought a lot of cooking stuff at their store. A great experience and well worth the cost.
Harriet was our chef, and she was amazing. She provided us with the New Orleans' rich history on their food and culture. She taught the class with such passion that you wanted more. She was funny and interjected tales of her own family. We just loved her!
The presentation was excellent and enjoyable. The information about food and New Orleans history was a fun learning bonus. The food was wonderful and he made it look easy. We will see if I can do it myself. :)
We had fun while we watched and a wonderful meal. I will make gumbo at home. The shop had a great variety of cookbooks and products. Plus chocolate pralines. YUM!
One of our favorite activities in New Orleans! We had Julie and she was so funny and knowledgable. This is enough food for a big lunch and it is all delicious!
This was one of our favorite tours during our visit to New Orleans. Pat was our instructor and she was fantastic! They had a mirror above her cooking station so you could see exactly what she was cooking. She had a great personality and sense of humor and answered a lot of questions as she explained the history of New Orleans cooking. The chicken and sausage gumbo was my favorite dish and was delicious! The Jambalaya was very good and not sticky or clumpy at all. The pralines and banana foster were a great ending to the class. I also really enjoyed the lemonade and beer that was served. I wasn't a huge fan of the hard biscuits served in the beginning of the class though. I highly recommend this tour as you'll get a few good laughs, knowledge of some great history, and some amazing food!
