What you'll do

You’ll begin the class by learning the best kept secrets for authentic New Orleans cooking. After welcoming you and other guests into our home style kitchen, we will fill your glasses with wine, beer, soda or tea. You will discover the legendary Cajun Holy Trinity and the Holy Pope. We will then start cutting and prepping the vegetables in our spotless, clean kitchen and proceed to make the best New Orleans cuisine you’ve ever tasted.

Once the Cajun Holy Trinity and Pope is all chopped. Mise en place (everything in its place), we start the Dark Roux for the gumbo. After the gumbo, we start the light Roux for the Shrimp Etouffee.

After properly plating your meal, it's time to dine.

The last part of the class, (and possibly your favorite) will include teaching you how to make Bananas Foster. Yum! We’ll show you a fool-proof way to make this dessert that is sure to impress your friends and family.

So fun! History, cuisine, culinary skills, tips to add flavor. Very personable. Great recommendations for places to try in New Orleans. I recommend doing this class the first day here instead of the the last day like I did. I guess I need to come back now!

This was by far the best part of my trip to NOLA. The chefs are deeply knowledgeable and really break down how to cook the food with care. This was a gift from my wife and I think any person would deeply benefit from this class!

I call NOLA my second home so when I'm not here I wanted to take a little of NOLA back with me to Massachusetts. I couldn't think of a better thing than learning how to cook the classics. I took the Roux class with Chef Connor. He was so fantastic; he even taught me a self-proclaimed foodie and home cook some new tips and techniques. Beyond that, the food was amazing (Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo, Shrimp Etouffee, Bananas’ Foster). Connor was personable and immediately made me and the other guests feel right at home. I can't wait to take another class.

This was such a fun experience! I am so glad I stumbled upon it on Airbnb. Decided to try this class as a gift to my husband on our anniversary/babymoon trip. Preston was awesome and made sure that we were all able to follow along, giving us tips and tricks in the kitchen. Would definitely come back again!

Preston is amazing! What a nice guy. Preston has a true passion for cooking and loves to teach the class. We learned a lot about the New Orleans style of cooking as well as the history behind it. Now I know how to make an authentic roux and will be able to cook at least two new dishes for family and friends. Highly recommend this class. The best value for the buck.

Great experience! Chef Scott was an excellent instructor and the dishes turned out wonderful. If we ever come back, we'll do another class with Chef Scott!
