Very informative and entertaining! Anne made the two hours fun as well as filling the presentation with some history about how this special food evolved and came to be what it is today. Must do activity while in the Big Easy.

The class I attended the celebrity chef did the cooking. He used onions in the preparation. There may be a class where you cook. In which case you could leave out onions. Mike
