New Orleans School of Cooking


Sit back and watch some of the most talented chefs in New Orleans whip up classic dishes that celebrate the colorful legacy of Creole cooking. Enjoy an in-depth cooking demonstration, grab some silverware to taste the results, and go home with recipes so you can recreate your experience at home.

Head to the New Orleans School of Cooking to meet your instructor, a professionally trained chef ready to show you how to whip up Cajun and Creole dishes like yam and crab bisque, shrimp étouffée, and spicy jambalaya. While daily menu items change based on seasonality, you might find out the secrets behind really good red beans and rice, uncover the secrets to cooking crawfish, or watch the fiery preparation of a sweet tooth-satisfying bananas foster.

At the end of your fun-filled demonstration, pull up a chair and enjoy the meal your chef has prepared. Pair each bite with a refreshing glass of iced tea or locally brewed Abita beer, and don't forget to grab copies of the recipes you've tried so you can make each of these delightful New Orleans creations in your own kitchen.
