Fans of Cajun food will be thrilled to discover fun activities with a cooking class that they can join in on with the tradition of down-home Southern meals at the New Orleans School of Cooking. This wonderful cooking class has been helping guests make delicious meals since the 1980s. Visitors will learn to create tasty delights that are a perfect Louisana attraction for couples. Geared toward learning the basics, this two-hour open class introduces you to quintessential Louisiana cooking.

Depending on the day you go for the class, you'll master favorites such as gumbo, shrimp creole, jambalaya, and bread pudding. Certain days provide different food items so go multiple times to learn new meals, or use the menu to decide which day you would like to learn what food you want to cook. Of course, every lesson includes a scrumptious praline recipe and demonstration. And, you'll be able to dine on everything that is cooked while sipping on Abita beer, iced tea, lemonade, water, and coffee. 

Your teacher will toss in some fun culinary facts and also history, as its a school located in an early 1800s molasses warehouse in the middle of the beautiful French Quarter. After class, you can shop in the adjacent Louisiana General Store to stock up on goodies. The Louisana General Store is full of locally sourced products that are used by the New Orleans School of Cooking chefs! The General Store carries a line of different Cajun and Creole ingredients, spices, cookware, cookbooks, and gift baskets.
