  • Harriet was an excellent chef and kept us laughing

  • Great class loved it

  • Our chef, Ann, made this a hilarious couple of hours. She's one of a kind. A good cook, a fabulous raconteur who cooked, joked, told us some history, shared stories. She made the time fly by. Would definitely recommend this tour.

  • Great experience , we got to know Louisiana history through its food, and the teacher Pat was an amazing talker . We really enjoyed this time . Recommended to people of any age if you like cooking and food.

  • Enjoyed The Cooking class. The food was great!

  • We sat and watched the cook prepare food. She was funny and very entertaining. All the food was great and we were supplied recipes

  • The food is great and the instructors are fun characters. They demonstrated how to make local dishes and provided printed recipes. At the end, you get to sample all the wonderful food. I highly recommend attending a cooking class or two!.

  • Had so much fun and the food was amazing! Learned so much about New Orleans food and heritage too!

  • This was wonderful! The food was great and our teacher was extremely personable. A few of the attendees myself included agreed that if she had her own TV show, we'd watch it! You get to learn a lot about New Orleans history during the demo, too, so it's not just all about food. I highly recommend this experience for anyone traveling to or near the French Quarter.

  • This class was very entertaining. I thought attendants would be actually cooking, however you're watching the instructor cook while speaking about the origin and flavors of the meal. Other than that, it was a great class!
