Food was delicious and Pat was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We can't wait to try the recipes when we get home. Only reason I gave it 3 stars was because I wasn't able to sit with my 10 and 14 yo sons. I was disappointed...More

I had no intentions of going into this place, but the sweet smell lured me in. The pralines were fresh and the best I've ever had. The staff was friendly and engaging.

My brother and I attended a Friday morning hands-on class. Excellent instructor, small group(8 people), good camaraderie with classmates, and great food. Instruction was clear and detailed.

Chef Michael did a wonderful presentation. Beyond the cooking class it was very informative on New Orleans history. I have attended three classes now and will go again.
