– A Feast for
This is Louisiana-style culinary entertainment at its best. As Louisiana natives, we are masters in the art of cooking and conversation. Put us in front of a crowd, and we'll spend hours spinning stories about life in Louisiana, local culture, cuisine, and our history.
Think of our culinary entertainment events and New Orleans cooking demonstrations as an intensive crash course in one of Louisiana's classic dishes. Our storytelling chefs weave classic and modern cooking techniques and ingredients together to bring an important Cajun or Creole dish to life in front of your eyes. We look at a dish from every angle and explore the diverse culinary influences and ingredients that contributed to it, from the West African use of okra as a thickener in gumbos to the introduction of corn by Native Americans. We demonstrate techniques and the science of cooking – from cleaning and filleting fish to "blackening" in a hot cast iron skillet. We'll also show guests how to plate the same dish several ways, with variations for each recipe.
Our chefs travel to your home kitchen, meeting facility, or a local restaurant. We also work with various restaurants and private event venues that can provide a full meal during the demonstration. (See Locations page.) Please let us know if need assistance identifying a venue or caterer.
Demonstrations cover one of three classic Louisiana dishes
Cajun Chicken & Sausage Gumbo / Seafood Gumbo
Creole Macque Choux & Blackened Fish
Barbecue Shrimp & Smoked Gouda Grits
