Jack was very informative about the history of Cajun and Creole cuisine along with all the different influences over the years. He was very passionate about New Orleans and especially the music, believing food and music to be a great partnership.

Tasteless Tour
Richard_L

The advertisement of the shrimp picture is misleading. No doubt the shrimp picture is used to entice people to take the tour as if that is the kind of quality of food tasting one is going to have however, the sample food tasting on the tour is nothing of the quality of the food that the French Quarter has and offers. The French Quarter has far more superior tasting food than the tour provides and offers. Most of the food tasting on the tour was not fully eaten by the participants on the tour. Not enough food tasting was given there was more talking about history than food tasting. The value of the food on the tour was possibly less than $10.00 For future participants there should be more food tasting and better quality of food.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is an easy walk through the french quarter. Laurent was amazing and really the highlit of the tour filling the trip with stories and history as well as discussing the cuisine of New Orleans. All the food we had was very good examples of that type of food which are all part of the culinary history of New Orleans. Boudin, ettoufee, bread pudding, muffuleta, etc. The portions were plentiful with no one going away hungry. The three hours went by very quickly and enjoyably for our family. Two thumbs up!

Our guide, Susan, was great! She took us to some great restaurants and shared the history of New Orleans and their great food. It is a great way to start out the trip, especially if you are new to New Orleans. Susan also made recommendations on other restaurants and bars to check out. Had dinner at a couple of her recommendations, Saint John and Muriel’s Jackson Square, and they were fabulous. Really great food! Also stopped in at a couple of her bar recommendations, The Spotted Cat Music Club on Frenchmen, that had great drinks and live music. And a little hole in the wall Cuban bar, Manolito, that had great food and the best fresh Pina Coladas we’ve ever had. Thanks Susan! Miss New Orleans already. Great people. Great Food. Great City!

Laurent was amazing! What a wonderful and unexpected surprise having an actual French chef conduct a French Quarter Food Walking Tour. I truly appreciated that it was a small group so we had a very special experience. Laurent was upbeat and informative. It was so personal that it really felt like he knew us and hadn't done this before. The food tastings were exceptional and we were able to eat just enough to be satisfied while also getting a taste of the rich culinary history of the city. It couldn't have been a better experience. Fantastique!
