Southern Comfort Series: New Orleans Style
This is a Hands-on Cooking & Wine Experience!
New Orleans is a unique melting pot of culture, music and cuisine steeped in a history of influences from all over Europe and the Caribbean. Join us on a culinary adventure through the Big Easy and learn the difference between Cajun and Creole cuisine and the “holy trinity” of Louisiana cooking as we explore the rich ingredients, unique methods and traditional dishes of this incredible spirited city. From flavorful one-pot Cajun creations to classic French-inspired Creole techniques, this class will have you saying “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
You will first be met with a reception wine and light appetizers served with a side of Southern hospitality. You'll have a striking view of our impressive open demonstration kitchen. You'll don your apron, roll up your sleeves and your Chef will walk you through the preparations your meal while you enjoy a sip your wine! Once you've completed your meal, you will sit down and enjoy it. You will also experience wines paired with the beautiful meal you've created.
Throughout the evening you'll learn about the recipes, food preparation, and the "why" behind the wines we pair with the meal.
All AWS cooking classes include an emphasis on wine, because that's who we are! You can expect 2 different wines to sample during reception/cooking and two wines paired with your meal for a total of approximately 3+ glasses. If you would like to add more wine to your experience, you can taste 32 different wines in our Enomatics (wine dispensing system) or you can order wine by the glass or bottle.
