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 meal. 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. All of the mis en place 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.
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. All classes are BYOB-beer and wine.
Class online registration ends 24hrs prior to the start of class. Please call our office to register if within 24hrs at 504-934-1010.
CLASS DESCRIPTION: In a city that knows how to laissez les bon temps rouler! (let the good times roll!), one meal truly shows off our ingrained sense of joie de vivre. This famous get-up-late, loll-into-the-afternoon time is characterized by several classic dishes that every New Orleanian knows by heart. Sit back and enjoy this demonstration class covering one of the city’s most celebrated meals: brunch!
CLASS DESCRIPTION: When the sun is high, the people of New Orleans take refuge for lunch inside their favorite restaurants – from old line favorites like Galatoire’s and Antoine’s to contemporary classics like Herbsaint to neighborhood dives and po-boy shops. Part demonstration class, part local dining experience, we capture the spirit of the refined, yet humble dishes that define lunchtime in New Orleans and show you how to make a few of our Cajun and Creole favorites (with a twist!).
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Storytelling isn’t just a favorite pastime of South Louisianians – it is part of who we are! The tradition is very much alive and well. That’s why the food on our dinner plate reflects more than just a collection of ingredients – it tells our story, from the varied cultures that that shaped Creole cuisine and rural Cajun foodways to the history of the people who have preserved and carry on our culinary traditions. In this demonstration class, you’ll learn techniques and dishes that blend the past and the present – food that highlights our traditions from a modern perspective.
