Relaxed and Enjoyable Experience - This was well worth the money for the great experience. Very relaxed atmosphere and good conversation with the group and of course, Chef Cindi. I learned a great deal about the history of the local foods from her, and the personal attention she gave you while you were making your dishes was spot on. Plus you get to keep your apron and the recipes for your dishes.

Best Experience In New Orleans - We had such an amazing time with Chef Joe. His approach to cooking and enjoying a meal is so refreshing. We got to meet our small group and bonded over all our cooking experiences; good and disastrous. 😆 I would highly recommend

Best thing on our trip - The class was so informative and hands on. The chef teacher Lynn was great. She gave such great directions and cues for getting everything just right. I highly recommend having a class taught by her. The food was amazing. It is something you can do at home. All the direction and recipes were given to you at the end.

Review for cooking class - The experience was pretty great! My pops and I had a great time leaning 3 courses. The instruction and support was excellent. We would only suggest that if any staff have colds or a cough, they don’t engage or teach as they could spread germs. And that’s scary. I’d also suggest that there is a calm way to get all participants attention and voices are not raised at any point. There are some cool facilitator tools that could be used. Thanks for the learning and the stories.
