food is always a subject of conversation, any time of the day. Who has the best
po-boys or muffalettas, where to get the freshest seafood, who offers the best barbecue–these are all hotly debated issues of the greatest
importance. There are many cooking schools in The Big Easy, but the most famous one is The New Orleans School of Cookery.
The lively and entertaining classes of the New Orleans School of Cookery and the Louisiana General Store are located in a
renovated molasses warehouse built in the early 1800s in the heart of the French
Quarter. They teach the basics of Louisiana Cooking in a way you'll never forget.
Fun is a primary ingredient in this kitchen! The local Creole/Cajun experts teach New
Orleans specialities such as Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines, and season them with
history, trivia and tall tales.
Since the 1980's the New Orleans School of Cooking has introduced countless
visitors from around the world to the wonderful food and rich culture of
Louisiana and New Orleans. Classes are held seven days a week in the beautifully
renovated warehouse, located at 524 St Louis Street, between Chartres and Decatur in the French Quarter.
Lessons include the highly popular 2.5 hour "lunch classes". These are open to individuals and include generous samplings of the demonstrated items as well as recipes, coffee, iced tea and icy old beer.
Our clients rave about the New Orleans School of Cookery, even those who don't normally cook revel in the atmosphere and the great camaraderie. Give it a go, you won't regret it....!
