You have to try the Cajun cooking school at the riverwalk mall. Not only do you learn how to make a few dishes, but the instructor makes it fun, as well. You don't actually cook here--it is a demo--but that may be just as well for some of us, no? I learned how to make cornbread, red beans and rice, pecan pralines, and pecan pie. The menu changes, so call the school before going. You may go more than once and learn to cook different foods. In fact, there was a cook who went to the class four times. After sampling some of the food that was made, you get the recipes for the food you made to take home and a coupon for 10% off items in the store such as Mexican vanilla and pecan pralines.
