NEW ORLEANS, LA—Let's delve into another Louisiana's favorite meal in a Cajun Cooking Class organized by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum. A curator-led tour will be presented in this hands-on class, giving an opportunity to learn about Cajun culture and cooking style. Also, you will get a chance to watch a demonstration about how to make appetizing dishes by SoFAB's Director of Culinary Programming Dee Lavigne. This lets the participants get a deep look at their historical and cultural roots while exchanging opinions.

This class will take place at Southern Food & Beverage Museum, 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, New Orleans, Louisiana on August 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This class costs $75 per person, for Museum members will get $5 off. The ticket price includes enrollment, lunch, recipes, and a private tour guided by a curator. Beer and wine are not included.

There are 4 menus that will be presented in this class. First, we will learn how to cook Maque Choux with Tasso. The next menu is Cajun Gumbo with Dark Roux, Andouille and Chicken, served with Louisiana Long-Grain Rice. Then we move on to Cajun, the cane-syrup version of the classic dessert bananas foster. The final menu we will learn is Luzianne Iced Tea.
