This cooking school experience was fantastic, and exceeded my expectations. What a super day! Chef Bond is warm, friendly and a great teacher, who is clearly passionate and enthusiastic about his NOLA cuisine and roots. His helper Stacey is a bubbly funny character, who adds so much to the day. You learn everything, the history, cooking techniques, knife skills, roux... More

Lovely house, great welcome from Chef Bond and Stacy. Started off getting the bread pudding underway, sliced a mountain of garlic, prepared the roux for the gumbo, got the crawfish étouffée together... then we got to eat what we'd made, and very nice it was too, thanks to our mentors. Do book, you will not be disappointed but i) make... More

This was just the best day in NOLA. We made bread pudding, gumbo, and crawfish etouffee. So very good,and Chef Bond, Stacy and Troy were just so much fun. The food was exquisite. It was great going to the West Bank and seeing a warm home. Also, great tips on technique. I'm looking forward to receiving the recipes by email!... More

Chef Bond and his team treated us like family, teaching us about the history of the amazing New Orleans cuisine in the Sauces class. It was a great mix of food, history and fun. I want to return to do another one of his classes- we loved every dish!

The class was fun with good food! Also learned some new skills and yummy recipes. It's an easy ferry ride from the French quarter and 2 block walk from ferry. Nice neighborhood, adorable house.

I have previously done demonstration cooking class in the French Quarter. When my son and his wife said they wanted to taking a cooking class during their visit, I immediately said "OK, as long as it's a hands-on class". Good choice. The 5 of us (my wife and other son were with us also) took the ferry from the end... More

My friend and I loved this 'hands on' class. We are both longtime cooks, but learned tips on making a proper roux, the difference between Cajun and Creole cooking, and made dishes that we will make again at home. The gumbo was especially good. I'll definitely take the sauce class when I'm back in town.

My wife and I attending a cooking session about 2 months ago and we had a great time. The relaxed and cordial atmosphere only added to the great food we learned how to cook. They were very accommodating and friendly, and the chef did well at explaining every step so we understood the "what" and "why" for future use. We... More

We had such a wonderful time and learned so much in the process! My only regret is that we didn't have time to take more classes. I can't wait for him to send me our recipes so we can try this at home! Pam B

A great afternoon/evening for me and my 12 year old daughter. The trip on the ferry was easy and took us to an area worlds away from the touristy French Quarter. The school is in a charming 150 year old house in the Algiers Point area. We found Chef Bond and his assistant, Stacey, to be welcoming, friendly, and very... More

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
