Cooking Class: Learn Traditional Creole Favorites

Master the zesty flavors of New Orleans in this hands-on cooking class. Chef Vivian will teach you traditional Creole cooking techniques and inspire you with fresh flavor pairings and useful culinary tips. 


Begin by preparing a Louisiana favorite: gumbo with smoked andouille sausage. If you’re brave, drizzle the dish in hot sauce, just like the locals. Next, create a tender pecan-crusted chicken with a savory Creole sauce and crunchy fried okra. End your meal by baking a warm and comforting sweet bread pudding. These classic Creole dishes will quickly become favorites in your home!

Chef Vivian started her class with showing me how to properly cut the ingredients. She was a great teacher and made sure to inform me of the safety precautions when chopping. The dish she showed me was shrimp creole. I cannot wait to create this dish again.
