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.
My friends and I had a wonderful time. Would recommend this class to anyone, young or old, visiting New Orleans.
Such a great class to sit in on and the food was delicious!!! Loved it!
It was really great experience and time with Mr. Kevin. We had fun and good time.
