My sister and I attended your morning class my first time her third time, Pat was a delight and her knowledge of history was amazing and very entertaining. The food was amazing if this had been served in my home I would have licked the bowl. Hope to be back next year M Kilian

It was such a lot of fun learning to cook pralines, corn and crab bisque, and Chicken Etouffe. The chef was amusing and kept us laughing through his demonstration. Don't eat lunch before you go to an afternoon class because you will be served up a large amount of food, along with beer, water, and iced tea.

Phenomenal! The class and Chef instructor was great. Learned a lot and can't wait to prepare gumbo and jambalaya back in Indiana. Food, atmosphere, and history of New Orleans cooking was interesting and enjoyable.
