Some New Orleans visitors take home Mardi Gras beads, souvenir cups, and trinkets from the French Market; others buy art from the galleries on Royal Street. If you're here, it's because you're interested in one of the city's greatest gifts: our uniquely delicious cuisine.
At Langlois Culinary Crossroads, you get more than recipes and a cooking class: guests are treated to an entertaining and interactive culinary experience that ends with a restaurant quality meal you can easily recreate at home. For a moment in time, you get to live (and eat) like a local. From Creole and Creole classics to modern interpretations of our favorite dishes, you'll take home an authentic taste of New Orleans. Classes last 2-3 hours depending on menu and participants.
We encourage our guests to cook! The menu is posted during class and we ask for voluntary participation throughout the process. If you aren't cooking, you may be tasting, plating or offering suggestions on the dish. So in summary, our class is hands-on if you want, and hands-off if you would rather sit back and relax. Everything for class is ready for you, so no need to chop or measure. This allows you the chance to take notes, relax, make friends or enjoy a glass of wine. Please keep in mind that we do not set up individual stations for each guest. All meals are prepared as a group on shared kitchen equipment including commercial burners, ovens, and induction ranges. We want our guests to learn techniques such as sauteing, frying, braising, blending, mixing, whipping, baking, plating, roux making and the list goes on!
Class rates include a full meal, coffee, tea, water, instruction, recipes and glossary of terms, history and tax. Gratuity is not included, feel free to provide a gratuity to your class team at the time of the event. We do offer a full wine and beer list available for purchase at the time of your class.
