Signed up for a 'hands on cooking class' and made gumbo, shrimp & grits, pralines and bananas foster crepes. Probably the most fun I've had taking a class. Chef Mark was a hoot, patiently explaining why ingredients were added when and telling great stories. 4 hours flew by, I really wanted to stay longer. I highly recommend it!

We had a really good time learning about Louisiana's history and traditional recipes of jambalaya, gumbo, bread pudding and pralines. Tom was very entertaining and the time flew by. Great gift shop and the food was really good. Highly recommend.

We decided to watch a cooking demonstration about cooking Jambalaya, Gumbo and Pralines and can't wait to get home to try it. Our instructor, Harriet, was a kick in the pants. She's one of those people that everyone would like to know. She mixed in some history of New Orleans cooking along with personal stories that were always humorous. Afterwards... More

We went to a Saturday morning demonstration class. Tom was the Chef. Fresh-baked biscuits with molasses were on the table when we arrived. Tom was very knowledgable and fun. He walked us through the recipes, being careful to explain what he was doing and why. He even walked us through making a roux! He talked a lot about New Orleans... More

My husband and I tried to walk-in to an afternoon demonstration class and it was full, so we made reservations for the following AM. We were the first to arrive but one of the last ones to be seated. They let registrants into the demonstration classroom in the order of when they registered. I thought for sure we would be... More

This is well worth the money... I have done the "Demonstration" class... Good deal, you get a great meal and show for the Price. This time I did the "Hands On" Class which is well worth the extra money! It is 3 hours of history, instruction, friendship, good meal and a show!

We felt privileged to be part of the New Orleans School of Cooking demonstration class. For a very reasonable price we where treated to entertaining Harriet who cooked 4 Louisiana dishes. Crab Bisque, Shrimp Creole, Pecan Pralines and Banana Foster's. Upon entering the demonstration room our tables had biscuits and syrup. I instantly regretted eating breakfast before coming to this...

I had a demonstration class included in my escorted tour. I had higher expectations. I would loved more a hands-on option I think. Our group was seated on big round tables for 8 or so persons. One bottle of wine was included for every table. I understand that they don't want drunk people. But now 3 ladies took everything and... More

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.
