New Orleans School of Cooking
Fans of Cajun food will be thrilled to discover they can join in the tradition of down-home Southern meals at the New Orleans School of Cooking, where visitors will learn to create tasty Louisiana delights. Geared toward learning the basics, this two and half hour open class introduces you to quintessential Louisiana cooking. You'll master favorites such as gumbo, shrimp creole and bread pudding. 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 history, as befits a school located in an early 1800s molasses warehouse, as well as fun culinary facts. After class, you can shop in the adjacent Louisiana General Store to stock up on goodies. It's easy to add a little 'bam' to your repertoire and return home ready to amaze and entertain your dinner guests.
