Food from the South has long been iconic in America! Southerners have a knack for making food that is flavorful, spicy, and completely addicting. In this class, we are going to focus on a specific region of the south: Louisiana. The state has a large amount of French influence in their cuisine, from way back when the area was owned by France. Over time, the food has evolved into what we know today as either “Cajun” or “Creole.” In this class we will discover the differences between those two cousins, and make some delicious dishes as well. We’ll make dishes as such: Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, Shrimp and Grits, Alligator Po’Boy, Muffuletta, Crawfish Etouffe, and Beignets with Banana Rum Sauce and Pralines for dessert! This class is sure to be delicious and educational- win win!

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are asking all students to wear a mask to class. We will be taking temperatures at the door, as well as providing hand sanitizer upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  All food goes home in a box at this time so that masks need not be removed.  You will get a portion of each dish!

Please indicate the age of your child (children) in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.
