It'll be like a party on Bourbon Street - just in your own kitchen. Master Jambalaya, NOLA "BBQ" Shrimp and Crab Cakes in this epic cooking class

No dish quite embodies the spirit of New Orleans like a spicy Jambalaya.  This legendary Creole dish has its origins in Spanish and French culture that has so defined The Big Easy. In well documented food history, Jambalaya can be traced back to the 1800's. Colonial Spanish settlers tried to reconstruct their native paella using locally-sourced ingredients. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and Jambalaya was born. Now firmly planted as a unique contribution to global cuisine, Jambalaya is so important in this region there are hotly contested debates of what makes a true Jambalaya, and in spring there's a festival celebrating the dish every year. 


Rounding out your Jambalaya class are Creole Crab Cakes and NOLA "BBQ" Shrimp. In what become your favorite dish from the class, this shrimp isn't traditionally "BBQed" as its name suggests. Buttery, saucy and savory, this dish has an interesting history dating back to 1953 and a happy accident.
