What You’ll Do
Part French, part African, and all American, Creole cuisine deliciously illustrates the fusion that characterizes New Orleans culture as a whole. To ring in Mardi Gras—which falls on February 17 this year—chef Veronica Porter leads a 90-minute class on making a number of favorite New Orleans-style dishes.
Learn Creole Recipes
You’ll make shrimp jambalaya, spicy remoulade, mini muffulettas, and Cajun maque choux—a braised corn salad.
Meat and Gluten Optional
Veronica has plenty of experience accommodating dietary restrictions, and she can alter the lesson for those who are vegetarian or gluten-free.
Take Treats To-Go
Feel free to bring a container—you’re welcome to take any of the food home.
Founder, Ask Aunt V
Veronica Porter’s inspiration to start Ask Aunt V began on a playground. Spotting a girl who seemed blue, Veronica approached her to ask why. Due to a sensitivity to lactose, the girl couldn’t eat the tasty treats her classmates were enjoying. Veronica decided to find a way to craft satisfying foods for children and adults with dietary restrictions, and today she does just that through cooking classes and thoughtfully catered meals.
