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.

I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start cooking creole/cajun food. Richardo was informative and fun. Small class so it was personal.

Kevin was an excellent teacher. The food was amazing especially the shrimp and corn brisque. I was happy to get tips on making my pralines right. Kudos to Kevin. He was funny, informative and held the audience captive. I and #39;ll recommend this class to anyone visiting New Orleans.
