Rejoice in the ease of New Orleans recipe wrangling with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a two-hour afternoon cooking class at The New Orleans School of Cooking on St. Louis Street in the French Quarter. This Groupon is valid for a demonstration cooking class, taking place Wednesdays through Saturdays from 2 p.m.–4 p.m., and includes a full meal and take-home recipes.

The New Orleans School of Cooking prides itself on arming culinary scholars with savory knowledge of the city's varied and diverse cuisines. Local chefs skilled in Cajun and Creole cooking traditions fete students with tasty food facts and lunch fare while giving storied glimpses into gumbo and jambalaya construction. The school sets up its edible lecture hall in a renovated molasses warehouse fashioned from pancake bricks at the turn of the 19th century.

About The New Orleans School of Cooking

Zesty aromas of jambalaya, gumbo, corn crab bisque, and pralines fill the air of the New Orleans School of Cooking. It's here where a talented team of local chefs share their culinary insights while teaching the basics of Louisiana cooking with flavorful fervor. Since 1980, scores of well-known talent have demonstrated bayou–style cooking in their home base: a renovated French Quarter molasses warehouse, originally built in the 1800s.

Like their building, the dishes they teach are part of long-standing New Orleans traditions. Their demonstrations cover dishes from gumbo to jambalaya to crawfish etoufee. As they teach, the chefs weave in elements of local history, trivia, and legend, too, painting a portrait of the city that extends beyond its edibles.
