Come in and relax, Get acquainted with your classmates and begin to take your fantasy cooking trip back over a century ago. Enjoy creating your Cajun and Creole menu when you don your aprons and begin a full day of learning and cooking.
You’ll begin the class by learning the best kept secrets for authentic New Orleans cooking. We begin by discovering the importance of the Cajun Holy Trinity, and start cutting and prepping to make the best New Orleans cuisine you’ve ever tasted.
Once the Cajun Holy Trinity is all chopped, we will take a break and get our first glass of wine. Mise en place (everything in its place), we start the Dark Roux for the gumbo. After the gumbo, we start the light Roux for the Shrimp Ettouffee.
After properly plating your meal, it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The last part of the class, (and possibly your favorite) will include teaching you how to make Bananas Foster. Yum! We’ll show you a fool-proof way to make this dessert that is sure to impress your friends and family.
Each student is shown professional techniques, the secrets of seasonings and the preparation of selected recipes while learning the history of Louisiana's world-famous cuisine. Wine, Beer and Water are included. Reservations are required. Minimum class is 2 people with a maximum of 10 people.

This is also a Hands-on class. Prepare to tantalize your taste buds. Each course is better than the last! One cold sauce and three warm sauces are prepared.
