Discover new recipes while exploring the history of Cajun and Creole influence in each dish.

Take a trip to the French Quarter with this hands-on cooking class centered around a New Orleans feast. You'll learn about the evolution of cuisine in this region and the differences between Cajun and Creole fare.

Chef Linda will teach you how to create several N'Awlins classics, including a BBQ shrimp starter, jambalaya with chicken and sausage, and a Creole-style slaw. A true Big Easy meal isn't complete without something sweet, so you'll learn how to make sinfully delicious pecan pralines — enough to take home, too! Laissez les bons temps rouler!

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

We chose the New Orleans meal and it did not disappoint our tastebuds. Chef Linda had a fabulous knowledge of the NOLA area including the history of the people and the food. She welcomed us into her beautiful home and we worked side by side in her kitchen (all ingredients, Utensils and cookware provided) and learned new tips and techniques while making a wonderfully aromatic and delicious four course meal. We ate as we cooked and had enough for leftovers!! Linda was warm and friendly and funny. I'd highly recommend this experience. When I'm back in Tucson next year, I'll definitely book another cooking lesson!

Chef Linda was outstanding. It was my boyfriends birthday and she went above and beyond my expectations. She has extensive knowledge of the history of food, knife techniques and more! Her home is beautiful, clean, and her kitchen/utensils are top notch! Our family will be doing another class with her!
