Chef Mark was great! We took the hands on cooking class and absolutely loved it!!! We will actually probably do this class again with different recipes. I’ve already made the gumbo and cheese grits again at home with the recipes we used in class. Yum.

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
