Roll up your sleeves as you study and create the flavors of New Orleans.

Craft a handful of Louisiana favorites for a well-rounded, classic Creole meal in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Vivian. You'll master the art of perfectly seasoned recipes from starter to dessert.

First, you'll fry up bite-sized pieces of Cajun-seasoned alligator tail, dipped in Louisiana hot sauce. Next, learn how to expertly prepare shrimp and grits seasoned with Worcestershire-spiked butter and a kick of vinegar. And for dessert, handcraft your own pillowy-soft beignets dusted in powdered sugar with guidance from Chef Vivian.

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