Our favourite memory of New Orleans. I only hope that my gumbo turns out as well when I try it at home.
My first tour in NO and Pat made it my best! As a traveling chef on a food safari, this course was everything I could have dreamt of. Pat gives an incredible history of the food as well as cooking fabulously - don't be booking lunch after this as the portions you taste are more than adequate to get you through till dinner! Great shop too.
Great fun with a really informative and entertaining lady chef (sorry can't remember name). Food delicious, will definitely try making gumbo and jambalaya ourselves. A very pleasant morning.
This was the best, Kevin is a chef and an entertainer! We have been to this before and it is just terrific. We highly recommend this when you are in New Orleans
Fun, Fun, Fun. It gave some local history, comedy and good cooking basic skills in New Orleans Cooking. Big Kevin was our instructor...6'9'' tall and weighing in at 380 lbs. He was so entertaining and the food he prepared was wonderful. We got a small helping of everything he made. Not a bad seat in the house as a mirror tilted above the cooking bar showed his hands as he worked. I will do this again.
Fantastic experience! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the cooking demo and lunch - we all received detailed recipes plus a delicious lunch of each of the traditional Creole foods prepared by our chef. Her amusing discussion of the history of New Orleans clarified many of the questions we had surrounding this most fascinating locale. We finished our visit by loading up on local food specialties sold in their shop. We're looking forward to wowing our family and friends with an authentic Creole feast!
My wife and I attended the New Orleans Cooking Class and had a fantastic experience. Sandra, our chef provided a fantastic history of New Orleans outlining the arrival of various ethnic groups bringing with them different foods and styles of cooking. All this was delivered in easy listening style whilst she was preparing pralines, gumbo and jambalaya. The food was an fantastic and I can understand one of Sandra's earliest comments that and quot;New Orleans folk love their food and quot;. It certainly easy to understand why. Overall a geat experience and I wholly recommend this activity to anyone visiting New Orleans.
Excellent, informative, fun, funny, and you'll have a great time and learn to cook a few New Orleans dishes that will make you the star of your family and community. I highly recommend the cooking class!
Wonderful opportunity to learn about the cooking styles, learn how to cook specialty dishes of NO and learn a bit of history too! Needless to say we got to taste everything that was made over the two hour period and it was all delicious!! Highly recommend.
Fantastic. But I was unimpressed by Viator not letting us know we had a firm booking until a few hours before our class. Viator also cancelled another swamp and plantation trip we booked leaving us in the lurch.
OMG!! This was one of the best experiences we have ever had. My first trip to New Orleans and I chose this class as a surprise thank you for my 2 nieces who came on the trip with me. They were totally surprised. Michael was great. He was funny , knowledgable, fully of history and most of all , he made some great food. We left stuffed to the gills. If your looking for something exciting and different, please sign up for this class or surprise someone who is going to NO and sign them up. You can't go wrong with this class. I am making one of the recipes this weekend for the family. I recommend this class to anyone and everyone.
Great class... Chef Kevin was fun and energetic.... Had a blast and food was excellent... Can't wait to go back and take another class next time we visit New Orleans!!!
Great times! Our instructor was a great narrator/historian, funny and a great cook. We enjoyed the Friday 10am menu. It was a great taste of new Orleans!
This was a totally fun cooking class. We tasted delicious food and Anne was delightful as a teacher.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our time in New Orleans. The cookery demonstration, tasting and dialogue were informative and entertaining. It was my first time tasting Gumbo and I had two bowls. Could easily have had a third. I will be attempting it this weekend! The website was easy to use and the constant reminders were timely.
A BLAST!!! Anne was our chef but much more than that. Her knowledge of the food was off the chart. Her knowledge of New Orleans History connecting the food to today is what made the entire experience one that myself and my friends from South Carolina will never forget. We have told everyone to go to this cooking class.
If you are a "foodie" this is a must on the list. The instructor was warm and funny, the experience was just like sitting at a kitchen table and having a conversation with a friend.
This class was fantastic. We watched as the food was cooked while stories were told. Quite crowded in the dining area but great way to meet people - 6-8 people per table. The food was delicious. Especially the Pecan fudge.
Harriet was witty, informative and did an excellent demo. Our best time in New Orleans!
Pat is an enthusiastic and fantastic teacher; a true ambassador or New Orleans!
I loved the class. It was fun and informative and the food they prepared was delicious. I even attempted to make the Gumbo at home with the recipe they provided. And much to my surprize, it turned out great! It's all in the roux! Thank you for such a fun and laid back class. I also purchased Joes Stuff and roasted garlic, to make my food extra delicous.
