Take a journey to the Big Easy with Chef Shelley for a classically indulgent brunch.

The South is known for breakfast, but New Orleans steals the spotlight when it comes to brunch. In this hands-on class, Chef Shelley teaches you how to create a classic New Orleans brunch unraveling the mystery of distinctive regional flavors.

Begin by learning the essentials of making a rue—the base of many New Orleans dishes. You will use your new skill to prepare shrimp sassy benedict and red-eye gravy with ham to top buttery biscuits. Lastly, bananas foster brings the party to the brunch with banana liqueur and dark rum.

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

We loved our New Orleans Style Brunch with Chef Shelley! She was very welcoming and friendly from the second we arrived. Our conversations were nothing but lively and fun. We also learned quite a few new cooking techniques and the food was incredible. We will definitely do another class and will be sure to recommend her to our family and friends! Thanks Chef Shelley for a great night!

Chef Shelly was amazing and so welcoming. My boyfriend and I enjoyed every single dish we prepared. She was so much fun and easy to talk to I felt right at home. The food was to die for we couldn’t stop eating it. I had never seen my boyfriend eat so much at once. We were left speechless with every single bite. I will definitely be coming back. We love you MomDukes!
