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!
We had so much fun in this cooking class. Anne was our instructor and we found her to be very entertaining as well as informative. It was great to learn about how the different cuisines had come into New Orleans. Would definitely do this again.
Unfortunately we didn't get to cook the food ourselves. However the lady explained the origins of the food that she cooked which was very interesting.
I was apprehensive about the food as I can be picky but it all tasted really good.
No problems with accepting the voucher
We would recommend this to everyone! Had a great time and shared great food.
Beyond my expectations for this experience! Our group of six included one first time visitor to New Orleans...we ALL had a fantastic time! Although we've had jambalaya hundreds of times before, Chef Kevin's gumbo and jambalaya were superb! Informative, entertaining, and a filling meal; go see Kevin!
This class was fabulous, and the teacher was both entertaining and informational. He gave us a great history lesson of people, culture, religion, food and more. And his cooking was fabulous. There was enough "sampling" to call it a full meal, even seconds and local beer were offered. We went as a family, and our teenage son even enjoyed the class. Lots of fun for everyone! And the New Orleans School of Cooking has a great shop with unique products to bring home as gifts and souvenirs.
Sooo!! much fun and yummy too. My group lucked out with Harriett. What a hoot she is. In addition to the cooking lesson, we heard a lot of history about the origins of Creole and Cajun cooking as well as the history of New Orleans. We laughed and ate good. Cant' wait to try out my new recipes.
Fun and informative. My husband and I enjoyed the food, cooking tips and history of LA.
