Description

We leave the city behind and explore another beloved cuisine of Louisiana in our Creole Cooking Class. Presented by Dee Lavigne, SoFAB's Director of Culinary Programming, this class offers an in-depth look into how to create delicious, traditional dishes that can be found nowhere else in the world, while discussing their cultural and historical origins. This is a hands-on cooking class where you will be not only learning about the Cajun culture but also the cooking techniques to make this cuisine in your daily life.

Who This Experience Is Good For

Anyone who likes food and interested in learning how to cook with local flavors.
