Anne, the instructor, Nawlins native and kindergarten teacher turned tour guide and cooking Instructor, was a real entertainer, reveling us with great stories about the area, her family,... More

Wonderful Experience. Chef was knowledgable, witty and funny. Atmosphere is fun and enjoyed the social interaction and of course the meal and BEER! A must do while in NOLA and the price is affordable as well.

We had a large group in for a special cooking night at the Riverview Room with the New Orleans School of Cooking with Chef Kevin and what a phenomenal experience! I cannot say enough about how fantastic Chef Kevin was with our group - provided enough direction and personality to our sassy group! We had 6 stations set up and... More

This is less of a cooking school in the sense that you actually participate in the cooking than watching a great cook cook a few New Orleans dishes and entertain. You will sample the dishes your host (the cook) prepares. My partner and I very much enjoyed the red beans, biscuits, and pralines. It may leave you hungry. Very affordable... More

We took part in the morning cooking class lend by Anne. She was a former teacher and tour guide so we received an in-depth history lesson of LA and NO. She also shared about her life growing up and the traditional family foods. The food recipes demonstrated made for a filling lunch and excellent two and half hour experience. Good... More

Harriet gave a super class about gumbo, jambalaya and bread puddin'. She is expert (former dietician) and hilariously entertaining. And we all ate her FOUR preparations. Delicious and even included beer. So much fun!

Was part of a tour group of fifty. Cooking instructor was very entertaining . Had a three course meal that qualified as there little appetizers. Walked away hungry. Would only recommend this place for fun and a small snack.

My friend and I did the demo class while in NOLA and had a great time. Where else can you get 3 hours of entertainment, local food, and beer for $32? I would recommend this to anyone going to NOLA.

Thank JodieE3

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
