Chef Linda was fantastic- organized, knowledgeable and friendly. I got purchased this experience as a gift for my partner because we have a special connection to New Orleans. We had so much fun cooking and eating delicious food (some recipes were from restaurants we had been to!) and learning. Would definitely recommend to a friend and want to take more classes from Chef Linda in the future!
