What a fantastic treat this was. I was so excited about the trip before I arrived and it lived up to my high expectations. Had an awesome experience and Chicqui was a fantastic demonstrator. Am now planning my own Loiusanna dinner party serving what I witnessed being made.

Our Chef, Chiquie Collier, was absolutely wonderful and entertaining. Our large group of family members always thought we had the BEST recipe for Barbque Shrimp, and wow, were we wrong! Hers are the best we've ever tasted. The whole meal was one of our best dining experiences in New Orleans, and all of the tips and tricks she showed us were amazing. We'll talk about this experience for a long time!

This was absolutely wonderful! The chef was very informative and the meal was absolutely delicious! I learned a new way to make bread pudding the one we had for dessert was even better than my mother's and that is saying something! and the best way to make a caramel sauce. The chef was willing to answer any and all questions, including recommendations for places to eat. Seriously, the meal was even better than the one we had at T Commander's Palace - book this tour!
