French Quarter Cooking Studio - Gumbo, Jambalaya, Bread Pudding & Pralines
The New Orleans School of Cooking is a place where food, fun, and folklore are all on the menu! The authentic cooking...
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 ????
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
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.
