We are the only Cooking School that does small, intimate hands-on classes in the French Quarter. Classes are more like a dinner party with friends. Our class size ranges from 2 people to 10. (For parties of 8 or more, a 20% gratuity is added.) Larger groups, up to 40 people, are welcome, too.

You’ll begin the class by learning the best kept secrets for authentic New Orleans cooking. We begin by discovering the importance of the Cajun Holy Trinity, and start cutting and prepping to make the best New Orleans cuisine you’ve ever tasted.
Once the Cajun Holy Trinity is all chopped, we will take a break and get our first glass of wine. Mise en place (everything in its place), we start the Dark Roux for the gumbo. After the gumbo, we start the light Roux for the Shrimp Etouffee. After properly plating your meal, it's time to dine.
The last part of the class, (and possibly your favorite) will include teaching you how to make Bananas Foster. Yum! We’ll show you a fool-proof way to make this dessert that is sure to impress your friends and family.
