What a highlight to our NOLA experience! Two couples in our group in a full class of participants. Instructor Pat entertained us with history of people, food and humor as she effortlessly prepared gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and pralines. Delicious! Would do this again!

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

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.

The class I attended the celebrity chef did the cooking. He used onions in the preparation. There may be a class where you cook. In which case you could leave out onions. Mike
