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.

My 2 daughters and I loved this class. Chef Toya was fabulous! Class was educational as well as entertaining. Learned several dishes and techniques that can be used to cook other food courses. We will definitely return to NOSOC when we return to New Orleans.
