Small Classes, Big Food and Good Times at the New Orleans Cooking Experience
New Orleans is often said to be the only city where diners plan their next meal while still eating their last. That may be because eating the meal is only part of the experience. The smell of onions and butter filling up a room, a few drops of red wine splashing onto a white apron, warm conversation and Southern wit— these are the things that make a meal here an event. At NOCE you won’t just learn to cook Cajun and Creole haute cuisine, you’ll sink your teeth into a slice of New Orleans’ history and culture.
Lunch and Dinner Classes
In each class at our cooking school we create a four-course meal. Cooking classes are limited to 12 students and set in a small, intimate atmosphere for maximum interaction with our teaching chefs. The teaching portion of class lasts about 2 ½ hours with the students joining the chef around our teaching island. Following class, we sit down to enjoy our four-course meal with a lively dinner party.
The $165 per-person class fee includes:
- A complete recipe packet
- Wine service for the duration of class and the meal
- All taxes and gratuities.
We also have group discounts for three or more.
