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.
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.
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 !!
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.
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!!
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.
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!
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.
The class was awesome. The instructor was very entertaining and the food was delicious. Would highly highly recommend.
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.
Greg was a great tour guide. He grew up in New Orleans and therefore had a number of interesting stories. Visiting the 9 ward was educational, learning more about what has happened since Katrina. Also a good tour of the French Quarter and Garden homes.
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!
Loved the cooking class! Top activity if the trip! Highly recommend it to everyone! The cook was amazingly awesome!
Great fun. A wonderful way to enjoy both the food of New Orleans and learn some of the history of the city. Our instructor Pat was wonderfully knowledgeable and entertaining.
This was a blast. The demonstration area is perfect viewing from anywhere in the room. The chef was experienced and entertaining. The food was wonderful. I would do it again tomorrow!

This was the best! Our cook, Anne, was a former tour guide and her expertise in history and cooking made for an excellent class. The amount of food we got to sample was a full lunch! We truly enjoyed every minute of the experience!
This is a great way to spend a few hours. The cook/speaker was great and the food was fantastic.
