Wasn’t my favorite. Lots of taking and not much cooking. Pans were already started so we didn’t see the prep.

I bought this as an experience for my wife to have during our Mardi Gras weekend in N. O. She had a fabulous time and continues to thank me a month later.

Its more than jut a cooking class. Its a history of the food and techniques of the different areas, given by an incredibly entertaining and engaging instructor. Will do this again for sure next time there and give this place the highest possible recommendation.
