First, learn about the basics of Louisiana cuisine from a professional chef during an entertaining demonstration, then sample classics such as jambalaya, gumbo, and pralines.

When your cooking class ends you'll have a few minutes to shop in the General Store before your tour guide arrives at the school to pick you up for the second part of your tour.

The chef had a delightful sense of humor. We left feeling very capable and enthusiastic about creating the same dishes at home. The cocktail tour guide took us to places we otherwise would have missed and offered a very comprehensive history of the places and cocktails we enjoyed. We’d do it again.
