When people tour NOCCA, their first response is usually, "I wish I could've gone to school here." Well, now they can – at least for one very special afternoon! Join acclaimed Chef Frank Brigtsen for some hands-on work in NOCCA's Emeril Lagasse Foundation Culinary Arts Studio.
Need a little inspiration for your upcoming holiday meal? Join one of New Orleans' best-known chefs, Frank Brigtsen, who'll teach you to make five classic Creole dishes, full of fantastic flavors and traditional Louisiana ingredients. The menu includes:
- Shrimp Calas with Remoulade Sauce
- Gumbo Z'Herbes (with rice)
- Redfish Pontchartrain
- Lyonnaise Potatoes
- Banana Bread Pudding with Bananas Foster
This class is limited to 12 students. Students will help Chef Frank make (and eat!) these dishes, and sample some wine pairings, too.
NOTE: Cooking utensils and aprons will be provided. Please come dressed in proper attire, including long pants or a long skirt and closed-toed shoes.
