Best Food We Had In New Orleans

about 5 years ago
This truly was an awesome experience. Our instructor Ms. Pat was great, she gave an excellent and entertaining history of New Orleans food, then she explained everything in detail as she was cooking. The food was excellent and the best gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines that we had while we were in New Orleans (we went to several restaurants while there but this was by far the best). Would definitely recommend this to everyone visiting New Orleans.

Fun cooking demo in NOLA

about 2 years ago
The cooking demonstration was fun and informative. The history of the area and how the different cultures added to the food choices in the area helps one feel more connected to the NOLA food experiences. I esp. appreciated the roux demonstration. Hate to admit I’ve undercooked mine in the past for fear of burning it ????

Amazing Experience!

Pat, our chef for the experience was delightful. She was entertaining and gave great history of the area. She was conversational and it wasn't like she was following a script. The food was delicious and she made us all confident that we could make the recipes at home! The best part of our New Orleans trip!

Chef Rene was a great instructor for the demonstration cooking class. Funny, historically informative and of course his jambalaya, gumbo, bread pudding and pralines were amazing!

Overall Good Experience

about 4 years ago
History of the food that was demo was interesting. The gumbo and bread pudding were very good. Jambalaya not so much. Annoying, a few late comers for another activity walked through the demo kitchen while our chef was cooking. The class never officially ended or we didn't hear him say thanks for coming. Chef Brandon left the area and went out to the store after making the pralines. The people in the class past the plate of pralines around the room ourselves and then followed Chef Brandon to the store.

Great food with an amusing and entertaining chef. Definitely worth it. I don't like bread pudding. I LOVED their bread pudding. Sorry, I don't like cajun cooking. I LOVED the entire meal. Guess I'm a convert!

French Quarter Cooking: jambalaya, gumbo, bread pudding, pralines

about 4 years ago
Great experience, the chef was entertaining and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and you were able to have seconds! As soon as I get home I’ll be making the jambalaya and gumbo! I bought all the seasonings... just hope my luggage doesn’t weigh too much! I’d rather throw some clothes out then the seasoning! Hahahahaha!

We had Harriet as our chef/teacher for this 2.5hr course. She was engaging, funny, delightful, and answered all of our questions. Her stories were appropriate and worked with the time involved with cooking. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to New Orleans becuase it was by far the highlight of my trip! Thank you
