This was a great introduction for us to the culinary side of NOLA. The teacher was superb actually a retired grade school teacher and made her presentation with a mixture of humor, New Orleans history, and excellent food for tasting. One couple had attended several classes over a week, because the menu was different in the mornings and afternoons, and on the different days. Luckily we took the course on our first day in New Orleans, which gave us a better understanding of restaurant offerings for the remainder of our trip.

I absolutely love Cajun and creole cooking and researched for a long while which cooking class to book onto, I am so so glad I chose this class at the New Orleans School of Cooking right in the heart of the French Quarter. I had a 10am class and on the agenda was gumbo, jambalaya, banana foster and of course the diabetic hell of pralines! It was AMAZING. My chef that morning was Anne, a 74 year old local with a lifetime of stories to tell you and plenty from the year prior to her. She knew so much about the city and its history, perhaps partly due to her being a teacher earlier in life, she filled us all in our belly's and minds it was fantastic. Like being in grandmas kitchen. I cannot recommend this enough!

While this is not hands on cooking class the Chef is both greatly knowledgeable and entertaining. We ate the food he made for lunch and it was wonderful. The recipes we took home will be fun to make and relive the memory of a great New Orleans experience.
