This class will take place over four Thursdays in July.

Thursday, July 8 – Class 1
We will learn Cajun vs Creole, Basic Knife Skills, and some info on a few Cajun ingredients. We will then make a New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya, and finally my grandmothers Gateau de Sirop (syrup cake). Take home all your creations.

Thursday, July 15 – Class 2
We will learn to make boudin and boudin egg rolls. We will also make a Breaux Bridge Staple – Fried Catfish over jalapeno cornbread topped with a seafood Etouffee. Finally, we will also make a bread pudding with sweet crude rum sauce. Take home all your creations.

Thursday, July 22 – Class 3
We will learn the art of making a Cajun dark roux that will be used to make a delicious chicken and sausage gumbo, we will then make a Paul Prudhomme classic – blackened pork tenderloin with twice baked potatoes and smothered green beans, and for dessert we will have bananas foster a la mode. Take home all your creations.

Thursday, July 29 – Class 4
We will begin with a classic creamy Creole style Shrimp and Grits, then go right into a chicken sauce piquant just like we would make at the camp. It will be served with a rice pilaf and corn macque choux. We will then have beignets and coffee for dessert.
