I always enjoy an experience that teaches me something. I learned so much in this class. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Thank you and I really appreciate that you offer your products by mail. I had to have my spices shipped as they were too large to go in the plane, but shipping was inexpensive, and I can order more now that I am home.

We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking demo provided by Pat. Pat shared a history of the region in order for us to understand the food New Orleans is known for. We loved being served a generous sample of the four dishes Pat prepared. All were delicious, with the gumbo being some of the best we have ever tasted. We highly recommend this activity!!

We are from nearby and make a lot of New Orleans style food but wanted to get a serving of local culture and cooking and this experience was excellent. Dianne was fantastic and gave such wonderful insights into the history and traditions of Creole cooking. Highly recommend.
