Creole and Cajun Cooking Demo (Thursday)
Sit back and enjoy watching a skilled, entertaining chef from the New Orleans School of Cooking prepare a classic Cajun/Creole meal for you, while learning about the vibrant history of New Orleans cuisine!
The four-course meal that the chef will prepare for Convention attendees will start with chicken and andouille gumbo before the shrimp etouffee entre with steamed rice, assorted vegetables, and dinner rolls. Bananas foster will follow for dessert, and as a bonus, you’ll be able to take home some pralines. The chef will also circulate copies of recipes so you don’t have to worry about taking notes during the class.
The New Orleans School of Cooking’s culinary shows are sprinkled with history, tall tales, and recipe tools of the trade. Since 1980, the New Orleans School of Cooking has introduced countless visitors from around the world to the wonderful food and rich culture of New Orleans and Louisiana as a whole. Its cooking classes and Louisiana General Store are located in a renovated molasses warehouse built in the early 1800s in the heart of the French Quarter, 524 St. Louis Street.
