This demo class was so much fun. I left wanting to come back another time. The food was wonderful, the staff amazing and Chef Brandon was a gem. He taught us all about the history of all the dishes and the ingredients.

Had a fun time while learning some history of the New Orleans style food. Of course you get to eat everything that is being cooked. Highly recommend this, for the price it is a great deal.
