I am a repeat at this school and find it a great way to combine my love of history, food/cooking and entertainment. Both times the classes have been terrific!

Top notch demonstration on classic dishes including tips that only can come from experience. The recipes are nice but the three pages of notes are invaluable. Enjoyed the history of the cuisine and savored the generous sampling portions. Can’t wait to take another class!

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the New Orleans School of Cooking! Six friends, mostly novices, under the direction of Chef Federico, actually produced a wonderful meal, and had so much fun! I highly recommend checking this out on your next trip to NOLA!

We throughly enjoyed the demo class. The food was absolutely delicious, and we now feel confident in our ability to tackle these recipes. The pralines made here tasted a thousand times better than those I tasted in the praline stores. I would definitely do it...More

The cook was very entertaining and had some helpful hints. I also took the class on Tuesday December 5 and had a different teacher. He was also awesome and very informative. I would take the class again in a heartbeat.

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port

I've seen young children there. You can call the School directly to inquire and also to find out the menu for any given day (ie, your child might have a preference for chicken versus seafood dish). For pricing, again... More
