Pat was very engaging as she started off teaching us a out NOLA history. we all learned so much, inmcluding the secret of how to make a perfect ROUX. I would highly recomend attending a cooking class. It was the highlight of out trip. Jayne from St Charles Illinois and Aynsley from Winnipeg Manitoba Canada f

I was going to cancel this class due to something coming up while visiting but I’m SO GLAD I DIDNT! This class felt “just like home”. From the hospitality to the smell of fresh pralines being made while waiting to enter. Take the class!

Torn was our tour guide he was awesome,He did great on explaining the history of New Orleans. This was our first to New Orleans we are from California, Torn you deserve a 5 star.

The food and ambiance were great. The gumbo and jambalaya were different from any I had before and very good. I hope I can reproduce it at home.

Chef Harriet was so funny and personable that it made it easy to learn the cooking techniques she was demonstrating. What a fun experience!
