Tasting New Orleans Part 2: Crescent City Cooks

Just minutes after starting my walk through the French Quarter, I bumped into a few shops along Chartres Street. I ducked inside one shop that sold unique kitchen decorative items, local food items, and regional cookbooks. On my way out, I saw a cooking demo class schedule posted outside the door of Crescent City Cooks located at 201 Chartres Street in New Orleans’ famous French Quarter.

I quickly walked back in the shop and paid $30.00 USD for Saturday demo class; and patiently waited for Saturday morning to arrive.

The demo class at Crescent City Cooks was more than what I expected. Chef Scott, one of the instructors, gave us a lesson in creole and cajun cooking while creating amazingly delicious dishes.

Arrive earlier, to make sure you get a great seat. If you don’t get a great seat, the remaining seats are good. Large mirrors & a large screen allows you to witness the cooking action.

Before you arrive, I suggest that you only eat a light breakfast. Crescent City Cooks will make sure you leave satisfied.
