Thanks for the great lessons Sarah and Joe! We enjoyed the food and all of the details required to get there. The Bananas Foster was "over the top" good.

Excellent cooking experience. Learned how to cook gumbo, shrimp etouffee, crab bisque, and pralines. Biggest treat we learned how to make roux properly. I highly recommend talking a class. they offer 2 classes daily and cover about 6 to 8 separate meals.

She was concise, hilarious and very informative of NOLA history, food and techniques. Will recommend to anybody who wants to get out of the afternoon heat, do something different and learn about the food NOLA is all about.

Pat did a wonderful job with the history part of the presentation! The demo was excellent, and the food was even better! We will definitely be back with other family members and friends.

My ten year old daughter and I have taken the class for the last three years. It's fun. She learns a lot and it's a great way to get her to try new things.

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
