 About the Classes 

Casa Pelican Cooking School offers small group, hands-on classes instructing home cooks of all skill levels in the regional cuisine of Louisiana. Each class features heritage Cajun and Creole recipes that showcase fresh, locally sourced ingredients. 

Because cooking should ALWAYS be a pleasurable experience, we offer a relaxed, casual atmosphere where no questions are too simple or too complicated to ask. Guests will enjoy wine/beverages while they cook and each class will conclude with a sit-down meal of the dishes prepared.
