Join us for an intensive 3-hour master class as you explore the spicy world of authentic Cajun & Creole cuisine.

Brimming with tradition, culture and flavor, Cajun and Creole cooking is best exemplified by the dishes found in traditional New Orleans restaurants.  No one knows this unique cuisine better than Chef Richard McPeake who spent 25 years supervising the Seaport Cajun Café, one of Gilbert-Robinson’s restaurants located on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

Chef Richard, an award-winning professional and graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, and a seasoned culinary instructor. He’s designed this power-packed professional culinary arts master class where you’ll learn to apply essential culinary skills as you learn to prepare the interesting regional cuisine he knows and loves so well … teaching important techniques along the way including: “blackened” techniques using seasonings to their fullest; deep and complex sauces and stocks; the trinity (Cajun Mirepoix); making and using a dark roux; and much, much more!

Yes, we’ll learn some great recipes and culinary skills, yes we’ll taste as we go and yes, we’ll have some fun “down on the bayou as we learn to make real southern Gumbo, Shrimp Creole, and Jambalaya. 

And, that’s not all….as a bonus, you’ll we’ll pair wines that you’ll get to taste along with the dishes we make. Don’t miss this fun and informative culinary trip to the Bayou! Bienvenue a vous-autres!
