It was certainly one of our favorites activities, in New Orleans, too. Dining in New Orleans is always a treat and it was fun to learn how to prepare some classic dishes. I think you will find a beverage you will enjoy.

The class I attended the celebrity chef did the cooking. He used onions in the preparation. There may be a class where you cook. In which case you could leave out onions. Mike
