Off the charts! Our chef was amazing, the food the best we had our entire 2 day stay and the history and knowledge incredible. Well worth it. Best way to start our NOLA stay.There is not parking a cross from the school so you will need to do paid parking down the road by and bring cash the credit card machine didn't work and it doesn't except change. 22.00 for 2 hours

It wasn't quite what I expected, I was looking for a hands on cooking experience. However, it was excellent! Brandon was very knowledgeable, VERY interesting and kept things light and humorous. I would definitely recommend and would go back for additional classes.

We had so much fun. This is much more than a cooking class. The chef gave us an in-depth look at the history of New Orleans and how events led to the foods and cooking styles used today. Very well organized.
