Great stop on are NOLA vacation. Second time to the class different approach than last time. Food was great would have liked a bit more history on the famous dishes.
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.
Chef Kevin is highly knowledgeable and entertaining!! We had a great time and cant wait to try his recipes at home and watch his tv show.
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!
I loved this cooking class . The food was fabulous , the beer was perfect . I would do it again in a heartbeat .
I highly recommend this class.
The food was amazing and the beer is awesome .
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.
We totally enjoyed it. The instructor was very knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. The food was delicious.
Fantastic class, the teacher was great. She was clear on the instructions and welcomed questions. She was also hilarious! Well worth doing
Harriet and her assistants provided a fun, relaxed, informative, delicious two hours of cooking in NOLA!
What a great way to spend an afternoon in New Orleans!!
Learned so much about making delicious gumbo and jambalaya and having the right beer go with dinner!!
I loved learning more about the culture and history of New Orleans and Louisiana.
My husband is coming next time!
This was one of the highlights to my vacation! The chef was well spoken, explained everything well and was a good speaker overall. He answered everyone's questions and the food was wonderful! The samples were more like a meal, my husband and I went from 2-4p and ate so much we never had dinner. It was unlimited craft beer My husband loved that! and very good tea. Don't miss this tour, even my husband who was reluctant to go, enjoyed it! probably the beer...
This was a wonderful experience. In addition to learning how to make and use roux properly, we learned a lot about the historical influences in New Orleans cuisine. Our chef, Brandon, was knowledgeable and amusing. I can't wait to make Gumbo and Jambalaya. This class came at the beginning of a 2 week vacation, visiting multiple cities and taking a number of tours. The cooking class kept coming up in our conversation throughout the trip. I recommend this course to everyone.
My husband and I loved the New Orleans Cooking Class. It's in the heart of the French Quarter, the food was delish, we met nice people, and the cooking instructor was awesome!

Amazing way to spend a couple hours, we learned about the local culture and how the NOLA food culture took way to the area. The chef was more than cooking instructor she made the time spent very enjoyable, then afterwards enjoyed the fruits of the class, awesome meal made easy. Can hardly wait to try at home.
Best value in town
You get a great direction on how to cook the dishes with a lot of New Orleans history explaining the cuisine background. You get to taste everything that is cooked during the class and take the recipes home. I highly recommend it!
very fun way to spend a few hours, meet some great people and eat some wonderful food

The cooking class was very interesting and very well organized. The chef was very knowledgeable and not only gave us information regarding the ingredients of the dishes he was preparing but also a lot of interesting background facts about the culture and origin of the food. We enjoyed generous portions of the delicious food after the class and the free beer to go with it.
Patthe teacher is brilliant, funny and a great teacher.
A history lesson is included for free.
Instructor was interesting and kept the class moving without interruption. He was informative and pleasant as well.
Omg what an amazing, interesting, entertaining morning....and we learnt some cooking skills too!!! I booked this class to learn to cook jambalaya but loved the gumbo too.A very professional setup with the perfect mix of entertainment and tutoring...and of course you can buy everything you'll need in the store afterwards...a thoroughly enjoyable experience
Kevin Belton was our chef and he was fabulous. Very entertaining and informative
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
had a great and informative time look forwarding to doing again with my sisters
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.
