Cooking Class - Bayou City Classics

Discover the Cajun and creole culture alive and thriving in the Bayou City food scene.

In this hands-on class, Chef Ja'Nel serves as your tour guide through the classic cuisine of the Bayou City and teaches you four classic New Orleans-style dishes with Chef Ja'Nel-style twists.

You'll begin with delicate crab cakes that explode with chunks of crab and a blend of snappy spices. For the entree, you will impress yourself with the depth of flavor created by a blackened chicken breast with vegetables and a creole cream sauce. And for dessert, Chef Ja'Nel shows you how to take indulgent to a whole new level.

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