Enjoy local anecdotes, storytelling, and interesting facts from your chef—and if you want to know the (slight) difference between Cajun and Creole food, just ask!
After each live cooking demonstration, indulge in hearty samples paired with tasty local beer, iced tea or coffee. Leave with a better understanding of food and some recipes to take home and perfect on your own!
