This was a real fun experience with our friends. Well worth doing while in the area. You watch and learn how to cook New Orleans favorite dishes and then you get them served to you. Arrive on time or you will miss out on the biscuits provided. Coffee, lemonade, and ice tea are served during your session. You will be... More

I have been to the cooking school several times and enjoyed the demonstration classes. But this time I took hands on class while I was in the city. And it was one of my best moments of New Orleans. First our host Ed provided great history lessons and stories about New Orleans cuisine. Second I enjoyed our cooking community (group... More

We attended an afternoon demo class, along with about 25 other people. We were seated at tables of 8, with a good view of the elevated demo counter (there was a mirror above it so you could see everything the instructor did. Our instructor was Kevin Belton, who also hosts a cooking show on PBS. Very funny and entertaining! He... More

There were five couples in our class and each of us had a work station with all the measured ingredients, stove and utensils. We cooked under the direction of a chef who kept us laughing and having fun. At the end of the class, we got to eat what we had prepared. It was fun cooking with my husband, but... More

For starters, the body marys were great. During out class we cooked gumbo (really good), bbq shrimp and grits (other worldly), banana foster crepes (good), and pralines (tasty according to those who like that sort of thing). My wife and I are not big cooks but we had no problem keeping up. We learned a lot and cannot wait to... More

SEATING We left hotel quite early to get a good seat (as there are many bad seats) but they call seating by the order you bought tickets!? Who came up w/THAT idea? Round tables for a cooking class? Hmmm. Shouldn't we all be FACING the presenter? I'm not there to socialize w/my neighbor. I'm here to LEARN how to COOK.... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
