Class Description: 

Tonight, we celebrate Mardi Gras season with the marvelous Cajun cuisine of New Orleans, and the hearty cooking of Acadiana (or “Cajun country”) right here at the CCKC.

Our own Chef & Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt is ready to lead you on a culinary parade down Bourbon Street as she walks you through some of her personal favorite Cajun dishes. Come learn the secrets to making authentic French-Creole food from a real culinary pro and you’ll see (and taste!) for yourself why this unique cuisine is so darn popular. 

You’ll get to help Chef prepare some of tonight’s savory menu like creamy Crawfish Dip. Next up is a savory N’Awlin’s-inspired Chowder – it’s soooo darn good!  For our entrée, Chef will dazzle you with great tips for preparing Blackened Shrimp and finally, we’ll take it down home with a classic bourbon-flavored dessert.  No one goes home hungry tonight!

A fun cooking class that’s sure to put you in the Mardi Gras spirit.Let The Good Times Roll!
