Hands on classes give you the opportunity to chop, stir, measure, and make your own dishes. A great team building activity!


Hands on classes usually start at 2 pm but we can accommodate other times for larger groups, just ask for availability. Class lasts 3 to 4 hours depending on how many people sign up for the class. 


Our minimum to have a class is 2 participants. If you are signing up as a single and there is not a menu posted, please email us, cookingclasses@att.net, or call us, 504-529-1600, so we can put you on a waiting list. Please do not process your payment, there will be a $10 non refundable fee if we do not get another person to join.


If you select an entree with an entree, we can freeze the dishes you prepared in class and you can pick them up frozen the next day or before heading out of town.)
