Cooking Class - Gulf Coast Seafood Feast

Bring the savory flavors of Southern seafood to your home table with this sumptuous spread.

Learn how to create a trio of shrimp dishes with classic Gulf Coast flavor in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Jerry. He'll share his secrets for adding Southern flair to a selection of recipes that celebrate coastal cuisine.

Start by preparing a spicy blackened shrimp salad with fresh greens and tomatoes before cooking up shrimp tacos topped with cabbage and fiery Sriracha sauce. Then, whip up shrimp and grits, a creamy Louisiana favorite. And an indulgent bananas Foster served with ice cream awaits you as an authentic New Orleans dessert.

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

Chef Jerry was an excellent host. We did our session with another lovely couple who were also a delight to be around. The session was at Chef Jerry's house and personal kitchen, and we were greeted with already prepped ingredients. We were initially hesitant about the session being only 1.5 hours long, but Chef Jerry was very efficient in the kitchen and multitasked everything so that even dinner was included in that 1.5 hour length. While we would have wanted the session to be even more hands on (having each person with their own kitchen station and cook their meal vs more of a demo with participants helping with prep), we highly appreciated Chef Jerry's in depth knowledge of the meals made, including a secret sauce that was able to be utilized for 3 separate dishes without it tasting the same in the end. We were also surprised to have additional menu items instead of just what's advertised, as Chef Jerry was indeed very generous with his time and resources. He also sent us the recipe afterwards which we also appreciated. Overall, the session was definitely a highlight of our trip down to NOLA!
