Experience the flavors of the bayou in this fun, hands-on cooking class. With the help of Chef Kayla, you’ll create a meal bursting with the magical flavors of authentic New Orleans cooking. You’ll first prepare a savory BBQ shrimp, drenched in divine spices and Worcestershire sauce. You’ll then whip up shrimp and corn grits, using fresh corn purée and honest-to-goodness Southern grits.
