Learn to prepare authentic gumbo, Creole-style!
In this Creole cooking class, Chef Tené will teach you to prepare the classic shrimp and sausage stew, gumbo. Starting with a brown roux (the Chef will teach you the difference between a brown and white roux), you'll build your gumbo from the bottom up. You'll also learn standard accompaniments for the gumbo, and will prepare an herb butter to enjoy with traditional French bread.
Chef Tené will be happy to tell you a bit of background about each of the dishes, as well as the history of the West Adams district in which she lives and teaches.

Chef Tene gave my 13 year old daughter and 4 of her friends an amazing experience and absolutely delicious meal. They especially loved they way she wove her family history into her recipes, and provided many small tips that they're all excited to bring into their cooking. She is a beautiful person and we'll definitely ask her back for more southern favorites. Thank you, Tene!

Chef Tene is a Southern girl after my own heart. Her courses start when she puts a picture of her Great Grandparents up in the kitchen to honor where her love of food began. She then shares all the secrets of Southern Fried Chicken and candied yams with such grace and kindness that you wish the evening would never end. Each dish is more delicious than the last and Chef Tene makes it all look like just the simplest thing in the world. Highly recommended.

Meet your chef
Baking has been a passion of mine since my very young days baking with my mom and my grandmother in Texas. My meals and my desserts are full of the flavors, love, and stories of my family. My great-great-grandparents were entrepreneurs and self-taught business owners, so the legacy of small business is in my DNA. I look forward to passing on my knowledge to you!
