Your first stop is SoBou, part of the acclaimed Commander’s Palace enterprise. Relish as you are treated to chicken and andouille sausage gumbo.

Continue to Leah’s Pralines, where you can sample a Creole classic or a new innovation such as bacon pecan brittle.
As you walk through the French Quarter, colorful signs for traditional po'boys or meat‐filled muffulettas may beckon you. Don’t resist! Your guide leads you to NOLA Poboys. Hear about seafood harvesting in Louisiana before biting into a fresh‐made oyster or shrimp po'boy.
Your final stop is the Creole Cookery for red beans and rice, followed by our dessert course of bananas foster bread pudding. As you indulge in these tasty bites, learn about the many ethnic culinary traditions that have influenced Creole cuisine. Your guide also explains Louisiana’s unique geography and the linguistic origins of classic plates like étouffée and jambalaya.
