Fun, educational, and of course a tasteful class!! Chef Toya was a blast and her tips have already been put to use in our home. Everyone was super nice and I would attend one of these classes again in a heartbeat!!
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?
I absolutely loved this experience. Miss Pat knows her history! I especially loved the way she introduced the history to the preparations of the gumbo, jambalaya and pralines. She was entertaining, funny, and classy. The food that she prepared was just delicious! The gumbo tasted even better with the local beer, which was also served. There was not a bad seat in the room as they had very large mirrors to display every move she made during the preparation. She kindly answered questions from us. After the food had been shared with all, she came down to meet us and engage in further lively conversations.
This was well worth the time to attend! I learned so much from Miss Pat and can't wait to try the recipes she taught us to make.
Love New Orleans Cooking Class!
it was a lot of fun. The chef was delightful and funny. The food was excellent, the best I had in New Orleans. I highly recommend it.
I took my husband and believe me cooking school is not his thing. He really enjoyed the experience. We came in late and were not made to feel embarrassed at all. The Instructor was not only entertaining the History lessons we received while the food was cooking were so informational. My Husband found her to be very interesting as he is a History buff. So glad we went, ya'll must go !!
A well organized class. The chef told entertaining stories about the settlers of New Orleans and the foods enjoyed in the city. The food prepared was very tasty and the variety of beverages was great. Everyone could view the food preparation clearly. This class was fairly priced. A great way to spend a few hours. Reserve in advance to insure you get in to the class.
Our class was led by Pat and she was excellent. She provided history and interesting facts not only on the dishes that she was making, but also about the cultural history of the area. She had a great sense of humor and seemed to enjoy her job. We really enjoyed learning about how the dishes evolved and how the different foreign cultures that came to the area influenced the popular cuisines in LA. Pat also shared important tips that I knew would be important in re-creating the dishes. I was so confident when I got home that I made jambalaya the next day and it was amazing. I appreciated that there was not too much emphasis on the products that the business sells that are used in the dishes. The meal we were served along with the beer was satisfying and delicious. I highly recommend this experience. A very well spent sum of money!!
The instructor was knowledge, funny and entertaining. It was a wonderful experience and to be able to sample such large portions of the food was an exciting surprise. Great class and I would recommend it to anyone. A highlight of our trip. We also took the food tour which was excellent.
We loved it! Big Kevin was great and funny and the food he made was delicious. Within a few days of returning home I had made the jambalaya and the pralines using and experimenting with his recipes. Highly recommended for anybody looking to learn more about New Orleans cuisine.
It was a rainy afternoon in New Orleans, but our afternoon at New Orleans Cooking School was fun. We enjoyed Chef Kevin. It was a delicious early supper.
Excellent cooking class. Not just because you learnt some tips and trics, but mostly because of the chef hosting this class. He was just hillarious funny and knowledgable. Just amazing. Recommend it to everyone, and if I go back to New Orleans, I'll go there again for the fun factor. And the lunch we watch him prepare was also really good.
The class was awesome. The instructor was very entertaining and the food was delicious. Would highly highly recommend.
We have taken this cooking class on two previous visits to New Orleans. This time we brought my brother and his girlfriend. We all loved it! Kevin teaches us something new each time we go, even though we've been making cajun food at home for years. He can take a room full of people and, by the end of class, have spoken personally to each person and made all of us feel that we are special and welcome to his class. And the food! Delicious! As he says, eating is fine, but eating in the company of good people is even better!
Loved the cooking class! Top activity if the trip! Highly recommend it to everyone! The cook was amazingly awesome!
I loved the class. I just wish it was more hands on than instructive and demonstrations. Kevin the instructor was wonderful, he is knowledgeable and entertaining!
I loved this class. Chief Harriet gave the cooking demonstration that included some history of the dishes cooked and history of New Orleans. There was plenty to eat full portions of all food cooked, and beverages and biscuits. You go home with the recipes from the class and can buy some of the ingredients used at the store in the front of the classroom area. You receive a 3.00 credit to use in the store, if you wish. I really enjoy the whole experience.
