The Mardi Gras School of Cooking’s seasoned chef, Richard Bond, guides culinary connoisseurs through the ins and outs of Cajun and creole cooking during informative, hands-on classes. In each two- to six-person lesson, the instructor dispenses cooking tips and nuggets of New Orleans history as attendees chop ingredients and befriend lonely globules of flour. The culinary coaching eventually manifests in a tasty chocolate bread pudding doused in a mocha-chocolate brandy sauce. After schooling on four different types of roux, blossoming knife-wielders concoct a Cajun roux to mix with gumbo and a creole roux to accompany an étouffée or shrimp creole, or to wear as perfume. At the end of the session, students can sip wine and nosh on their completed dishes while perusing copies of the recipes they conquered.

Pupils embark on gastronomic adventures at 9:45 a.m., when a complimentary ferry shuttles them from St. Peters Street to historic Algiers Point. By 10:00 a.m., the decorated chef will greet participants and lead the way to the kitchen for chopping, baking, and taste-bud pampering.
