    The cooking class was the first thing we did in New Orleans and it was one of our favorite events. The instructor, Ann, was very knowledgeable and we got to watch an amazing cook. If you get a chance to take a class here, do not pass up the opportunity. The food is amazing.

    The chef was difficult to understand and he did not engage the group. His stories about his family got tiresome. The food he prepared had little flavor.

    I took this class several years ago when visiting New Orleans and I remember it as being a highlight of my trip. Unfortunately when I went back the company seemed to have grown. It was not what I remembered. They crammed about 70 people in a room for a cooking demonstration. The crab and corn bisque was thin and oversalted. The etouffee was watered down and bland because 2 people in the group didn't like spicy food(?!). The chef was charming but spoke more about his own history than the history of the food ... giving only a passing nod to the culinary and historic influences. However, the staff is lovely and the pralines are excellent.

    I was excited to watch a real Nawlins chef cook a couple of local favorites (shrimp and artichoke soup, crawfish etouffee and praline candy), and then we were able to eat what he cooked. The chef was quite a character, and was quite a talker - sometimes getting sidetracked and long winded - this was my only reason for removing a star. I was interested to hear his stories about growing up locally and also helping on his grandparents farm. The food he made was delicious! We were also served beer and drinks. It was a bonus to be able to take the recipes home with us.

    We loved this experience. Harriet was such a good teacher, a lot of fun and very entertaining. The food (gumbo and red beans and rice) was fabulous! Highly recommend this experience.

    We really enjoyed our Monday, October 7 cooking class. The food was scrumptious and we certainly enjoyed our chef and sous chef.
