Visited New Orleans for my birthday, and definitely wanted to take a cajun/creole cooking class while in town. Landed on Crescent City Cooks, largely because we could pick the menu (being the first to sign up). We chose crawfish etouffee, andouille and chicken gumbo and...More
On a recent trip to NO, we thought it would be fun to do a hands on cooking class. We chose Crescent City Cooks in part because we were able to choose the menu (since we were the first to sign up). We chose to...More
On my last day in New Orleans I took the demonstration cooking class at Crescent City Cooks. They made seafood gumbo, crawfish etoufee, bananas foster, and pralines. Picked up great tips when making these dishes. We had full plates to consume and the food was...More
We took a hands on cooking class that was so much fun and so informative! I've made Gumbo for years, but they showed us great tips on how to improve the flavor and they showed us great chopping techniques to use as well. They are...More

Such a great time. We went to a hands on class, made 2 different roux, and finally have an understanding of how to properly cook. Our chief instructor was FANTASTIC and knowledgeable about n

Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.

It is not a cooking school you would attend to be a chef. They offer two types of classes: One is a demonstration class where they demonstrate the preparation of several dishes with a lot of pointers on ways to do it. It also has local culture entwined with it and you get to eat what was prepared at the end. I have made gumbo for years but picked up a variety of pointers from the class. It was in the $26-28 per person range and we spent 2-3 hours there. The meal was: File' seafood gumbo, Chicken Fricassee, Bananas foster, and we even had a Praline. Recipes were provided, class/dinner was fabulous.
They also offer a hands on class that is longer and of course cost more. Depending on how much time you have, either would be a great addition to your New Orleans visit.
