We opted for the $30 demo instead of $130 hands on. We were in a large room, big mirror so you can see what the chef is doing. Free coffee, ice tea and water. The tasting was enough to make a meal for us. Biscuits, soup, shrimp, pralines and bananas foster. Pat was like a clone of Paula Dean. We... More

We did the cooking demonstration class and had a wonderful time. The food prepared was good, along with the stories that went with the food. Our instructor was excellent. He gave a bit of his own personal background and knew a lot about the history of New Orleans and how the food came to be. The room was a nice... More

My best friend recommended this place and it was great. I did the the demo class with the corn and crab bisque, but the chicken etouffee was tasty... This is not for little children... I came with my mother and had a great time. I would recommended this as a part of visiting New Orleans.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
