About This Event

New Orleans is known the world over for its rich culture, soulful music and flavorful cuisine. Join us as we celebrate our love for the Big Easy by preparing some succulent Southern recipes. You’re sure to make new friends around the table as you shuck, stuff and slice. After class, we’ll jazz up the afternoon with hors d’oeuvres and a three-course plated lunch with wine pairings. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
