$39 for a Two-Hour New Orleans Creole and Cajun Cooking Class for Two ($100 Value)

Lead by restaurant co-owner Chef Anthony, a 30- year veteran of eateries in New Orleans’s French quarter, each class will walk students through the construction of a complete Creole meal. Chef Anthony begins by unveiling his recipe for chicken and sausage gumbo, a classic Cajun soup. After that, it’s on to an appetizer, entrée, and dessert that will change with each class. Each class will also receive an extra culinary surprise known in New Orleans as, "lagniappe."

The 16–18 students present will watch Chef Anthony work his culinary magic, jumping in to lend a hand at crucial moments. Classes will be held every Tuesday–Friday at 6:45 p.m. and on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. To stay authentic to his creole recipes, Chef Anthony cannot substitute ingredients to accommodate special requests for vegetarian meals, gluten-free dishes, or Mardi Gras–bead étouffée.

Marcela's Creole Cookery

Marcela's Creole Cookery uproots the definitive flavors of authentic New Orleans cuisine and Cajun fare and packs them into a menu brimming with robust seasonings and exotic meats, as mentioned by Seattle Weekly contributor A.J. Tigner. With 30 combined years in the restaurant world, Marcela's owners have created an inviting eatery that pays homage to the Big Easy with vibrant, playful colors showcased in contemporary artwork. Red-clothed tables coddle piping-hot platters of creole delicacies, including muffaletta po boys, hearty gumbos, and fried ocean critters such as shrimp, alligator, and crawfish from Poseidon's personal crustacean collection.
