This is definitely a must do when you come to New Orleans! Not only was the food amazing but learning where it comes from was such an enjoyable and fun experience. If you appreciate the history of food you will not be disappointed.

There are four of us and my youngest is 15 so he isn't old enough to do the "hands on" class. Can he still stay in the room and watch the rest of us?

Chef provided an individual serving for a celiac customer at my class on Tues. just let them know.
I have a group of 13 and we would like to take a cooking class at 2pm on January 7th but the online reservation tool only allows booking up to 9 people. How do I book for everyone at the same time? Is there a phone number I can call to speak with someone? Thank you
