Instead of searching for the perfect restaurant, get your fill of decadent Creole cuisine with a hands-on class at the New Orleans School of Cooking. Chop, slice, simmer, and fry under the guidance of a local chef as you prepare classic New Orleanian dishes like jambalaya, seafood gumbo, crab bisque, and bananas foster. The best part? Sitting down with a small group of fellow foodies to enjoy the homemade feast with wine and beer pairings.
  • Learn to make classic Creole dishes at a top-rated New Orleans cooking school
  • Enjoy a multi-course meal along with wine and local beer
  • Take home recipes, an apron, and kitchen tips to re-create the flavor in your own kitchen
  • Group size limited to 10 for a more intimate culinary experience

It was a fun instructional experience. The Chef/teacher went step by step on each course and being a novice at cooking, I felt as if I was not. I learned how to make a killer Rioux. I would recommend the hands on cooking to all.
