Description:Experience the Fun, Food & Folklore of New Orleans at the New Orleans School of Cooking. Located in the heart of the historic French Quarter housed in a renovated 1800’s molasses warehouse, patrons learn the basics of Louisiana Cooking in an unforgettable way. Fun is a primary ingredient in this kitchen! Cajun / Creole experts teach New Orleans specialties such as Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines, seasoning them with history, trivia and tall tales! The school can accommodate individuals, private group classes, special events and off-site events.
The front of the building hosts The Louisiana General Store, which is a thoughtful collection of the best locally sourced products, used and loved by the New Orleans School of Cooking's family of chefs. The store carries Cajun and Creole products, cookbooks, spices, gift baskets, cookware, and their signature seasoning - Joe’s Stuff™. The store is open for business 9am - 6pm Monday-Saturday and 9am - 4 pm on Sundays.
Whether you take a class, shop the store, or use their products at home – visit the New Orleans School of Cooking as a guest, and leave as family.
