Chef Roberto was outstanding! A great chef and teacher. We had a wonderful time and prepared a quite tasty meal under his tutelage. It was fantastic! National chef of 2013 Roberto was our teacher. He was tremendous! We learned to make Jambalaya, Gumbo, and Bananas Foster. We had a ball!!! We HIGHLY recommend this!!!. Be sure to ask for Chef Roberto when you register!!!

Ricardo was our chef instructor and he started off the evening with a historical background of the local dishes we were preparing. It was very informative and helped us understand the flavors and ingredients. He made it really fun with his jokes, stories and cooking tips. We had a really fun time.

Great experience. Chef Eric was entertaining. He gave us a lot of history behind the food in NO. Intertwined with the history of his family and of the actual city, it made for a wonderful experience. The food was wonderful. The entire group got together, made some really tasty food, and had a great evening. The free flow of wine/beer definitely helped (!). Cannot recommend this enough. A great way to get kids into cooking too. Our daughter learnt a few knife skills, how to handle a pan, etc. Was very proud of her achievements. She took pictures and proudly shared it with all her friends, and with grandparents. 2 caveats: not for vegetarians by any stretch. All the food has animal products (lard, pork, etc). Also, the food is not very healthy - an ungodly amount of fat goes into making these dishes. I am sure that this exactly how NO cooking is.. but cannot imagine that people eat so much fat at home. Tastes great, though!
