What you'll do

Example of roux class: After meeting everyone and getting cocktails, we start with making bread pudding and sauce so it can be cooking; I then give a history of the foods we will be making; next we prepare our mise en place (chopping everything before we build the dishes.) Next, everyone makes a cajun roux and then we build our gumbo and let it simmer for an hour. Last, we make a creole roux and then create a crawfish etouffee. Then, we sit together and enjoy the 3 courses that the guests prepared with an abundance of wine , beer and great conversation.
Other things to note
Since it is completely hands on, I suggest people dress to get a little messy.

Where you'll be

My cooking classes are held on Algiers point, a gorgeous neighborhood that I encourage my guests to explore. I usually take them for a stroll at some point during the class. this gives a little break and a chance to see the beautiful creole cottages and other unique spots that make "the point"the most awesome area to live in New Orleans.

I have done numerous cooking classes and schools throughout my travels and this one was superb! I could write a long review talking about harvesting our own eggs, making 5 star food, but I think the class and pictures speak for themselves!

Robin made the afternoon so much fun! We made a new friend today. The house and kitchen are amazing. Cooking with Robin was so much fun. Great wine, food and friendship. It really doesn't get better than this! On top of that, I have learned some great skills and cajun recipes that I can't wait to use in my kitchen at home. I will come back again and I highly recommend! Thanks for a fun and memorable day, Robin!

Some of the best gumbo we had through the entire trip! Also a lot more fun when you can see all the pieces that go into it. Robin is a blast; a great teacher and a fun host. Enjoyed the activity, the drinks, getting some practical cooking lessons, and the result was delicious!
