New Orleans Cooking School & Laura Creole Plantation Tour

The Platinum Club enjoyed a day trip to New Orleans, Thursday, June 7th. The first stop, the New Orleans School of Cooking, was full of the Fun, Food & Folklore that makes Louisiana special! The entertaining class and the Louisiana General Store are located in a renovated molasses warehouse built in the early 1800s in the heart of the French Quarter. They learned the basics of Louisiana Cooking. Fun is a primary ingredient in their kitchen! The menu included Creole specialties: Gumbo, Jambalaya, Bread pudding and Pralines, all seasoned with history, trivia and tall tales. They enjoyed a full meal featuring this menu, plus iced tea, coffee, or lemonade, along with copies of all the recipes.  It was a "ga-ron-teed" good time for all.

After the memorable cooking class together, the Platinum Club had some time to shop and do some sight-seeing in the Famous French Market. 

The Platinum Club then headed west, to the historic town of Vacherie, Louisiana to tour Laura – A Creole Plantation. At this historic site, they were able to view the largest collection of family artifacts original to a Louisiana Plantation. They saw clothing, business and slave records, Mardi Gras and mourning heirlooms, from over 200 years of daily life at this fascinating sugarcane plantation.  After their guided tour, they made their way north, for a special stop at Middendorf’s Restaurant for an enjoyable catfish dinner.
