Great family experience.

Great experience. Chef Eric was entertaining. He gave us a lot of history behind the food in NO. Intertwined with the history of his family and of the actual city, it made for a wonderful experience. The food was wonderful. The entire group got together, made some really tasty food, and had a great evening. The free flow of wine/beer definitely helped (!). Cannot recommend this enough. A great way to get kids into cooking too. Our daughter learnt a few knife skills, how to handle a pan, etc. Was very proud of her achievements. She took pictures and proudly shared it with all her friends, and with grandparents. 2 caveats: not for vegetarians by any stretch. All the food has animal products (lard, pork, etc). Also, the food is not very healthy - an ungodly amount of fat goes into making these dishes. I am sure that this exactly how NO cooking is.. but cannot imagine that people eat so much fat at home. Tastes great, though!

We had a wonderful time at the cooking class, the Chef was amazing and took the time to make everyone feel comfortable. The people attending was great assortment of people from diverse backgrounds, from Oregon, Washington, Kansas and Pennsylvania. We all got along swimmingly and enjoyed each other’s company. I would recommend this class to everyone if you want an exciting evening learning about the history of NEw Orléans and the food that makes it famous. The food was so good after we cooked it that we had to give compliments to the Chef, which was ourselves🤣

Chef Molly was very versatile, knowledgeable and personable. We learned a lot and the food was amazing! Waaayyyy more than you can eat! Definitely adding the Pecan Rice and Fish Almondine into our rotation! I was always intimidated to cook, but she taught us how simple and delicious it can be!
