Come in and relax, Get acquainted with your classmates and begin your New orleans fantasy cooking experience. Enjoy creating your Cajun and Creole menu when you don your aprons and begin learning new recipes, cooking great dishes and then enjoy the fruits of your labor. Each student is taught professional techniques, the secrets of seasonings and the preparation of selected recipes while learning the history of Louisiana's world-famous cuisine.
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 dine.
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.
