My husband and I recommend this activity. We enjoyed watching and learning how to make some iconic New Orleans food while hearing the history of New Orleans. Eating the food was even better--gumbo, jambalaya, and pralines.

My husband and I decided to spend an afternoon at the New Orleans School of Cooking expecting to learn a few recipes and taste some good food. We did, but what we also weren't expecting was a comedy show by two southern ladies! They were a hoot and we laughed and laughed (which is a great ab workout and a... More

This was an enjoyable, entertaining attraction in the French Quarter. As an added bonus, you get to eat the delicious food after watching the cooking demonstration. The room is small enough so that everyone has a good view of the process. A facininating history of the area is also included. I definitely recommend this if you are in the area.... More

Chef Mark was the best. All of the food was great. I highly recommend. The corn and crab bisque was the best.

Great to learn techniques. Good instruction. Recipes are provided, but if you don't pay attention you'll miss important instructions. (I retyped my recipe when I got home so I wouldn't forget.) They serve the tastings with beer - nice!

Ok. Wasn't sure about a demo. Thought it would be boring. WRONG! The biscuits, honey, molasses and butter were ready and waiting. Coffee was brewed and plenty of sweet tea on hand. Anne, the instructor, Nawlins native and kindergarten teacher turned tour guide and cooking Instructor, was a real entertainer, reveling us with great stories about the area, her family,... More

Wonderful Experience. Chef was knowledgable, witty and funny. Atmosphere is fun and enjoyed the social interaction and of course the meal and BEER! A must do while in NOLA and the price is affordable as well.

We had a large group in for a special cooking night at the Riverview Room with the New Orleans School of Cooking with Chef Kevin and what a phenomenal experience! I cannot say enough about how fantastic Chef Kevin was with our group - provided enough direction and personality to our sassy group! We had 6 stations set up and... More

This is less of a cooking school in the sense that you actually participate in the cooking than watching a great cook cook a few New Orleans dishes and entertain. You will sample the dishes your host (the cook) prepares. My partner and I very much enjoyed the red beans, biscuits, and pralines. It may leave you hungry. Very affordable... More

We took part in the morning cooking class lend by Anne. She was a former teacher and tour guide so we received an in-depth history lesson of LA and NO. She also shared about her life growing up and the traditional family foods. The food recipes demonstrated made for a filling lunch and excellent two and half hour experience. Good... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
