Cooking Class: Cook Cajun and Creole Classics

The tastes and textures of some beloved American cuisines come to life in this hands-on cooking class from Chef Lawrencia. If you've never experienced the New Orleans-style magic of an authentic Creole meal or the bold flavors of Cajun creations, this menu is a perfect introduction. 

Create a spicy jalapeño cornbread that will set your heart on fire and smooth, savory Cajun cheesy grits, two treats that will become regular side dishes for your home dinners. Simmer up a batch of zesty shrimp seasoned with classic Cajun spices, plus a batch of fried okra on the side. For dessert, whip up tender homemade butter cookies made with true Southern sweetness. These comfort food staples are true crowd pleasers!

We had the Street Mexican Dinner and she was so nice and professional. We hope to have another cooking experience with her again!

Seemed like the chef had little to no knowledge on making sushi, there was really no step by step. Just a chaotic mess throughout the class. Chef acted as if we were already supposed to know what we were doing and the microwave rice when making sushi is not the way to go. We had fun with our table regardless of the poor class.
