I think this cooking class and Laura Plantation were the highlight of our trip. Our cook was funny, entertaining, and she could cook! She made it look easy! She also shared lots of New Orleans and Louisiana history and the history of food in LA.

Our chef was funny, engaged, knowledgeable and passionate about Acadian culture and it’s Cajun cooking. We had a blast! Food was delicious.

Not only do you learn how to prepare gumbo, jumbolaya and pralines you get to eat them. On top of this our chef Pat was educational as well as tremendously entertaining. It was a great experience and not expensive.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

It was certainly one of our favorites activities, in New Orleans, too. Dining in New Orleans is always a treat and it was fun to learn how to prepare some classic dishes. I think you will find a beverage you will enjoy.
