Entertaining and educational classes are held daily at the New Orleans School of Cooking located in the heart of the French Quarter. Located in a renovated molasses warehouse, the General Store is there for purchasing Cajun and Creole cookbooks, spices, kitchen supplies, etc.
Well known chefs run the classes in either demonstration or hands-on styles. No one fails this class. The final exam is to eat an abundance of local dishes washed down with a local amber beer. Various menus are offered and are listed on the website calendar so you can pick and choose. Once home, you can easily duplicate what you learned from jambalaya to gumbo to pralines to pecan pie.New Orleans School of Cooking 524 St. Louis St. New Orleans, LA 70130 (504) 525-2665, (800) 237-4841 Lunch Classes: 10:00am to 12:30pm Price: $27 per person ($3 discount coupons are available on website) www.neworleanschoolofcooking.com
