Join Chef Michelle on a culinary trip to the bayou and create handmade Southern classics.

Enjoy the comforts of the South in this hands-on cooking class featuring Creole cuisine, where Chef Michelle will teach you how to handcraft a meal so authentic you'll believe you're in bayou country after every bite.

First, you'll prepare fried green tomatoes with homemade remoulade, and a spinach and strawberry salad with glazed pecans and homemade Champagne vinaigrette. Then, learn how to make the epitome of Southern comfort food — crawfish étouffée in a creamy sauce over rice — and a whiskey-caramel sauce-soaked bread pudding for dessert.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Both ladies were very friendly and enjoyable but this class was not as advertised. We chose the Spanish Meal which advertises a paella on the page. We did not make paella.. we made penne pasta with chorizo which was listed as an option, but we were never asked for our choice. The cake shown was replaced with a custard that needed to sit for 4 hours after we were done, so it was not ready until the next day, on the next day the "custard" was still soup in a tin in my fridge. The "spanish salad" was lettuce with carrots and tomatoes. I hosted the class at my house and they came with no pots, pans, bowls, or plates and used about every dish in my house. Once we were done cooking (1hr not 3 as advertised) they quickly left and the kitchen was a mess, sink full of dishes, counter covered in food, and floor a complete mess. I would have been better off taking the $170 and buying premium ingredients to cook a better meal myself. Basically, I paid the money to have them grocery shop and prep some of the ingredients and make a mess of my kitchen that I had to clean. I was embarrassed in front of my date for the experience, and it is not worth the money.

I love the kitchen but am not so good at executing a menu. I can never seem to time my menu so that everything is completed in a timely fashion. Taking Chef Michelle's class, taught me how to determine at what times menu items should be "fired" to achieve a well-timed meal. I've gotten much better at being able to serve my courses without having to reheat anything before serving.
