Pat was an awesome instructor. She was entertaining and knowledgeable about the food and history of the city. I took my daughter on her 21st birthday weekend so she could enjoy a beer with her dad. I highly recommend any day!!

This class was a cool intro to NOLA cuisine. Chef Michael was a hoot! Great class interaction, rich history lesson and delicious tasties made for a 2 hours well spent! If you're visiting New Orleans and don't understand the popular food options this is a neat way to learn.
