  • Alot of fun ...... food was really good ..... would recommend.

  • Pat is an amazing host with a wonderful no nonsense attitude, particularly to suggestions of healthier options! Lots of history, great tips as she cooked and the tasting was delicious. Highly recommend.

  • Donna was a fabulous guide.
    We could have spent the entire day with her telling us about her city

  • This was my third time, and hope to attend again soon.

  • Very enjoyable!

  • We enjoyed the cooking class. The chef was entertaining. In addition to showing us how to prepare three dishes which my wife enjoyed, he was able to explain the historical context behind how the dishes were developed over time which I enjoyed. We were served gumbo, jambalaya, and pecan pie enough food that we decided not to go for dinner after, as originally planned. A fun way to spend an afternoon in New Orleans.

  • We attended the afternoon New Orleans Scool of Cooking class. Our chef Ed was excellent. He gave great tips, slipped in many history facts about New Orleans, and showed the group how to cook the three dishes. Best of all, we got to eat the results. We even got seconds! The class made me appreciate regional dishes and the history behind them. Plus the price was right.

  • We booked 3 different tours in New Orleans and I loved them all. The cooking class was my favorite. While learning how to make gumbo, jambalaya and pralines, you also get to enjoy eating the food while enjoying beverages which even include beer. All for the price of the cooking class. It was wonderful.

  • The chef taught us a lot of where the New Orleans food and recipes came from. He gave us recipes and we watched him make it...with clear explanations. We also got to eat what he made. We made gumbo, jambaylai, and pralines.
    I highly recommend this class. They gave us water, tea and beer to drink.

  • Harriet was an excellent chef and kept us laughing
