Tired of eating the same old leftovers from your fridge? It’s time you learned how to make some killer new recipes at home!

Come to the Mardi Gras School of Cooking for a hand-on cooking class! After you take a ferryboat at the foot of the famous Canal Street to the West Bank of the Mississippi, you’ll begin your fun-filled day of continual cooking, learning and eating. During your class you will learn some of the history of New Orleans and food, recipes and cooking techniques.

You’ll start the class by making chocolate bread pudding with a Chocolate Mocha brandy sauce. Next, you will chop everything needed for the dishes. Yes, you do all the chopping and will learn proper techniques for this as well. Then you’ll do a study in rouxes where you will learn to make a roux four different ways -- making a Cajun roux for a gumbo and then a Creole roux for a Shrimp Creole or a Crawfish Etouffee. Wine will be served at the end of class, and you will get the recipes to take home with you.

And of course, you get to eat everything! You should thank your instructor for the awesome tips, but it might be hard with all the food you’re devouring.

Note: There is a 2 person minimum for this class to start.
