The best cooking school in New Orleans?

Can anyone give me advice on a cooking school in New Orleans? I am looking for a half day class to take with my Mom - I am a chef by trade, but my Mom is just an avid home cook - so something geared to the amateur would be fine. Any thoughts?

I have no personal experience, but one I know about that includes classes with some top local chefs is the New Orleans Cooking Experience:

My friends and I did the demonstration lunch at New Orleans School of Cooking. The demo was great, food was great and is was fun to compare notes about New Orleans with your dining companions. You are seated at tables for 8, if I recall correctly. This is not a hands on class but I certainly learned the secrets of making a good roux. You might prefer something with hands on. The class we took was a high percentage of entertainment and local history. Fun, which your Mom might enjoy but it might be too amateurish for you. I overheard comments from others that their husbands had stayed in the hotel to watch tv so they missed a great time and would have enjoyed it.

Our favorite is the New Orleans School of Cooking in the French Quarter. There is some instruction with many laughs along with recipes, plus it includes lunch. My son and his friend went last summer before they went off to college and thought it was a lot of fun, so it is really for people of all ages, all abilities. We continue to make the jambalaya recipe we initially got there about 20 years ago for family and friends wherever we go. Have fun! Karen
