Highly recommend this class, great chef, great venue, great food!
Our group of 6 attended the cooking class and enjoyed every minute of it. Along with the cooking demonstration we were enthralled by the stories and history of New Orleans. Our chef Harriet was wonderful, she explained all the recipes (Jambalaya, gumbo, pralines, and bread budding) as well as kept us entertained with stories of New Orleans. The food was excellent and there was lots to go around. I would highly recommend this tour

What a great way to enjoy your food!!!, This was a special Birthday gift for my husband. He could not stop laughing. Chef Ken and his team were fantastic!!!. The information given about the food, cooking guide and shopping was well worth the monies spend for the class.
We had a fantastic time ,the food was very tasty ,the classes were great and the chef " Rock ". He was very entertaining and the food came out easy and delish .Great idea to do something different in NOLA. I would recommended it. We did the early class , we got an early start and that was a good idea.
A great way to spend a few hours with great laughs, food and local beer. You get recipes and also a great way to sample a lot of local food. Generous helpings and a great way to learn more about New Orleans. Catered from non seafood lovers :)
This was by far the very best and most informative 2 1/2 hours of fun, yummy food and information about New Orleans.
A fun filled two hours with information about local food and history! The food was good and the shop on the premises was filled with Spices etc to take home! Very worthwhile and highly recommended time! Enjoy!
Kevin was great, entertaining, knowledgeable, and kept the pace going. Fun !
This is a great way to spend a couple hours....and the lunch following was delicious. Harriet is a super entertainer..both her cooking and her presentation is well worth the time and money. This was a highlight of our trip to New Orleans.
We had Kevin as our teacher and he has a personality that is as big as he is! What a great teacher! We watched him make gumbo, red beans and rice, pralines and pecan pie. We started out with biscuits where we sampled various syrups on them. We had iced tea, coffee, lemonade, water and my favorite Abita Amber! All the seats in the room are great due to the great cooking station with the mirror. Kevin bantered with the audience and took the time to answer ALL of our questions! His sense of humor is terrific! We ate the gumbo first. It was delicious! Better than the gumbo we had at Coop's. The red beans and rice were likewise terrific and we were served cornbread with them. The pecan pie was made in small tart shells and the pralines were to die for. We were given copies of all of the recipes. It was a FUN experience and a must do for a trip to NOLA.
Enjoyed the cooking class and the food, the recipes did not quite match up with the way the food was actually prepared - make sure that you take a pen so that you can write down any changes to the recipe.
What a fun class! You'll get to learn to make gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. The food was absolutely delicious - in fact, I think it was the beys gumbo I had while I was in New Orleans! And then the store is a cook's dream - I couldn't resist buying some spices so I could make these dishes at home :)
Not only great food and recipes, but also fantastic entertainment.
We had a fabulous cooking class taught by Kevin. He had a great personality and kept us very enthralled. We learned a lot!
Great! Great! Great! Chef Kevin was informative, funny and very interesting. We learned a lot about New Orleans cooking and some tips about cooking in general. Highlight of our trip.
Awesome!! I learned a lot about New Orleans cuisine and the food was sooooo good! Include this activity as part of your stay in New Orleans!!! Great!!!
Excellent class, excellent instructor who was knowledgeable and entertaining! Would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn New Orlean's classics.
Enterttaing, informative and delicious. Ann, the cook/chef even had a non-cook up helpimg her-me. What ablast, You get a lot for the money here. Strongly recommend this to all viisitors to NOLA-cooks and non-cooks, Bob Lockman Feb 7,2014
My wife had visited the School of Cooking over ten years ago and said we would have a great time. Our cruise was leaving Sunday afternoon, so I made a reservation a month prior to attend the class Sunday morning. What a great way to spend 2-3 hours.
Our chef host, Pat, had done all of the prep before we arrived so we could not only watch her cook but enjoy the food at the end. She prepared pralines, gumbo and jambalaya. The class was packed at maybe eight tables of eight each. Pat was no stop stories about Cajun, creole and New Orleans history, interspersed in commentary about cooking the dishes.
When the food was prepared, it was divided up among the class and served with pitchers of cold beer and other soft drinks. I could not believe that the demonstration and meal was only $29 per person.
Not to be missed!
