Tantalize your taste buds with Creole flavors in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Vivian, where you'll create homemade sauces that compliment any meal as you cook your way through a classic Cajun meal.

Start with mixed spring greens and a savory and spicy shrimp remoulade sauce you'll crave. Next is authentic Creole chicken generously seasoned with Cajun herbs and spices over a bed of braised collard greens and rice pilaf. For dessert, Chef Vivian will teach you how to prepare bourbon-soaked bread pudding with warm spices.

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

Chef Vivian not only has talent but she has personality. Her cooking class was the highlight of my trip. I can’t wait to try these recipes when I get home. I highly recommend this class!

Chef Vivian is a delight! The class was well organized and she had prepped everything ahead of time, making it super relaxing for our group. We had fun cooking and eating and enjoyed Vivian’s stories and history lessons. And the food was delicious, especially the bread pudding!

Chef Vivian started her class with showing me how to properly cut the ingredients. She was a great teacher and made sure to inform me of the safety precautions when chopping. The dish she showed me was shrimp creole. I cannot wait to create this dish again.
