    Booked our class by phone and Tripshock emailed my voucher very fast. I would not suggest trying to drive over here because there is no parking lot. Take an Uber or cab. We walked over from our hotel. The school is super easy to find and when you come inside you check in at the cashier stand. Our teacher, Julie was wonderful. Very funny and made you feel very welcome. It was nice to hear some of the history about some of the ingredients while she was cooking along with some of her fave places to buy them! Her helper, Ernest was very kind in passing out our dishes and cleaning them back up. It doesn't feel like you're there for 2.5 hours. It feels more like 90 mins. The time goes by fast and the food is sooooo good! My only regret is not picking up more spices as I left but thankfully they... read more

    Best thing I did in New Orleans!

    This cooking demonstration was so fun and informative, with such funny and entertaining stories from our Chef, Harriet. Who knew we were paying for a comedy show? Harriet made cooking look so easy and gave many tips to alter the written recipes to each of our own tastes. The food was amazing, and for the money, the food alone was worth it. However, you also get hilarious family stories and great recipes to take home with you. I am so glad we did this as this was the highlight of my trip.

    Came back to New Orleans to try this cooking demonstration, so glad we did!

    Best value in New Orleans! "Really" The entertainment value alone was worth the money and the food that was prepared and served topped it all. We learned more about the culture and history of New Orleans in two hours than we had in 4 previous visits to New Orleans. Pat and her staff were just incredible. You have got to try this, great fun and education. Can't what to get home and put what we learned to work. Thanks.

    The Best Ever

    The experience of Creole Cooking, was a new experience for my husband and I. Usually when I sign us up to do stuff he is usually bored sat in the corner. This was "THE BEST EVER" Chef Kevin was entertaining. Knowledgeable, Humorous. Made the Group Bond and enjoy the moment. The Food was amazing and his hints & advise did not need a pinch of salt. Well worth time and money.
