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 fried catfish and corn grits, using fresh corn purée and honest-to-goodness Southern grits. For dessert, Chef Kayla will teach you how to make a New Orleans classic: crispy, light beignets dusted with powdered sugar.

Kayla was friendly and informative. The food was delicious and we were involved as much as we wanted to be. She even did the dishes. Definitely a different and fun experience. I would recommend it.
