We’ve Moved!

Join us for a class our new location at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum’s Demonstration Kitchen at 1830 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. We’re very excited about our new venue and the fresh classes we are offering there!

Welcome to the New Orleans Cooking Experience:
A New Orleans cooking school like no other!

Learn the secrets of classic New Orleans cajun and creole cuisine in a fun, informal setting.

At New Orleans Cooking Experience, you will learn to cook authentic Louisiana cajun and creole cuisine in focused, spirited classes in our residential-style kitchen. Our cooking school offers small luxury half-day cooking classes. Our classes celebrate the traditional Creole and Cajun cooking of Louisiana, featuring traditional and historic recipes taught by our family of well-known chefs.

Classes from $165 per person.

Our classes include personalized instruction, unlimited wine service, complete recipe packets and dining. Following your cooking class you will enjoy a seated, served, dinner party style meal. Our price covers everything, including taxes and gratuities. A 3% processing fee will be added to your reservation.

Sumptuous food, endless wine and spicy conversation are the raisons d’être—the reasons for living— in New Orleans.

The New Orleans Cooking Experience is a unique cooking school that embraces the “laissez faire” spirit of New Orleans. Like the city itself, each cooking class offers guests an experience that is relaxed yet sophisticated, grand, yet intimate. Our kitchen surrounds the chef, giving every guest an up-close view … and smell!

New Orleans Cooking Experience offers both lunch and dinner classes and a compelling roster of programs including small, luxury classes. We are also available 7 days a week for private parties. At the New Orleans Cooking Experience, we vary our menus and enlist a who’s who of local chefs so that each and every class is an extraordinary culinary event.

Join us for a class … have fun, eat well and learn to cook distinctive New Orleans fare!
