Tucked away at 514 St. Louis Street, in an 1800’s renovated molasses warehouse, the New Orleans School of Cooking offers a daily three- hour class, from 10am to 1pm, for $25. Seated at round tables, we enjoyed meeting travelers from New York and Kansas City. Our menu consisted of silky corn and crab bisque, a spicy shrimp Creole, pina colada bread pudding (heavily laced with spicy rum), and (of course) pralines. Again, along with cooking and eating, we were regaled with tall tales of past and present life in the French Quarter.

Which class was better? A hard call. Both were worth the time and money. Try them and let me know what you think!
