New Orleans Food Demo - Gumbo, Jambalaya, and Pralines

47 reviews
Duration2-2.5 Hrs.
Welcome to The New Orleans School of Cooking where food, fun and folklore are all on the menu! Our entertaining cooking...
I brought my Mom to New Orleans for her Birthday . I planned this cooking class for us as something fun to do while we were there. To our and everyone else’s surprise we were randomly seated with 4 other birthday celebrations. Needless to say it was a party! I felt we lucked out because we had Harriet a 70 something year old firecracker who’s instruction was plain, simple and FUNNY! She after teaching for 2 hours stayed after to speak to everyone individually and signed her cookbook with a personalized note of well wishes. She is full of knowledge and wisdom. The experience for me was that of having one of the elders teach you the special way to add that secret ingredient to make the family recipe turn out just right. Both Mom and I enjoyed this immensely, I recommend it to all. We choose the .. Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines class.
It was very good and enjoyed education along with the cooking!
We loved the class and especially Chef Brandon!!! Very entertaining and answered all questions!! Would highly recommend this class to friends

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 ship! Thank you Julie and Ernest!
