Give your trip to New Orleans a culinary edge with a lively cooking demonstration class featuring some delectable Creole classics! Head to the New Orleans School of Cooking and get to know an expert local chef. Hear the history of Louisiana’s soulful cuisine, including the melting pot of cultural influence that distinguishes Cajun and Creole dishes. 

Watch as your guest chef prepares famous dishes such as gumbo, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffée, learn traditional techniques—such as the importance of a good roux—and the variety of unique spices that give classic Louisiana fare its distinctive flavor. Enjoy local anecdotes, storytelling, and interesting facts from your chef—and if you want to know the (slight) difference between Cajun and Creole food, just ask!

After each live cooking demonstration, indulge in hearty samples paired with tasty local beer, iced tea or coffee. Leave with a better understanding of food and some recipes to take home and perfect on your own!
