The cooking school was excellent. I have always been intimidated about making roux but not anymore.

This was my second time taking the Cooking Class and we loved every second of it. The food was delicious. The stories were hilarious, and my girls still talk about Kevin as if he is a good friend. Definitely would go again and again!

Everyone going to NOLA should do this. Informative, entertaining and a bargain. Lunch was included for the 10:00 class

AMAZING!! The only hiccup was that my husband and I were some how reserved for the wrong date July 1st instead of July 5th. We were still able to participate - it was just a bit stressful until they were able to confirm seating for us.

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience...cooking demonstration was full of cooking tips, history of the region and the region's food, and comedy! We enjoyed sharing our table with other guests, the food was delicious...and also the beer!

This is a great way to spend an afternoon in New Orleans. The chef is most entertaining, creative, funny, and there is a lot to learn. The food is fun to eat and what better way to get to know the culture there?
