We learned a lot and had fun. Started off with the traditional cat fish po' boy and boudin balls. My kids loved these. Our guide Donnean was teaching us all about New Orleans as we walked from place to place. Next up was delicious andouille and shrimp pizza with caramelized onions. At our third stop we had an amazing eggplant bread, fried and covered with a creamy crab sauce. My eight-year-old was a bit skeptical of that, but my ten-year-old thought it was wonderful. At the last stop the cupcakes, red velvet cake and smoothies were a huge hit. There were local stories to go with each dish and only a total of five of us on the tour along with our hostess, who is full or energy and a delight. It is not too far from place to place, but nice to get in some walking to have time to digest and see the neighborhood. It is very low key, far from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. These are not super-fancy restaurants so I was comfortable having children present. It was a great success.

The tour was excellent. Our guide Donnean was engaging and enthusiastic. We learned a lot about the History of New Orleans as well as her experiences during the Katrina flooding. The food was delicious and filling! [we didn’t go hungry]

Donnean did a fantastic job introducing the best of New Orleans food, history, and my favorite.. her personal stories being a true local of the area. It was the BEST and most tasty part of my experience in NO and I already have friends that have taken her tour and 100% agree. It’s a must do!

Donnean is a real champion of New Orleans food and culture. A fantastic communicator brought every story to life and delivered a fun, friendly and informative tour that had us all laughing and learning and eating some seriously tasty food. Myself and my wife have done x3 food tours now in different country's and they never ever disappoint.
