We went to a morning demonstration class and loved it. Our chef gave us a brief history lesson followed by delicious food. We thought we would only get a sample but it was a full lunch!!

This is a great experience. The perfect way to learn about the local unique cuisine and be able to take home the knowledge to enjoy the flavors long after you leave the city.

This class was such a good time! And deal!! You get a 3 or 4 course meal (they seem like smaller portions, but trust me, they know what they're doing. It is crazy filling stuff!), recipes, generation-old cooking tips, not to mention some serious entertainment!...More

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

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
