Cooking in the French Quarter

Ivan and I woke up around 8:30 am on March 18, 2010.  I took a shower.  We packed up our bags.  We were checking out of Hotel Le Cirque.

We put our backpacks in the car.  We started walking to the New Orleans Cooking School.  We were doing a cooking demonstration.

The class with packed with 40 people.  Our teacher was Harriet.  She’s a 68 year old French and Creole lady.  She was really funny.

She cooked four dishes: corn and crab bisque, shrimp creole, breading pudding and pralines.  We got to eat each dish.  I will have to try to make the dishes sometime.  The food was really tasty!

Ivan and I walked around the French Market.  I bought some souvenirs for my nephews.  We walked around the French Quarter as well.  I love the colorful buildings and the Spanish balconies.

We were a bit tired today.

We walked back to the car.  We drove to our new hotel the Lamothe House.  The hotel has parking for $15 per day.  The room turned out to be really big with a living room and an extra room with a small bed in it. 

We’ve had so much Cajun and Creole food in Louisiana that we wanted to something other than Cajun or Creole.  We searched for a restaurant that served something different in the French Quarter.  But, we couldn’t find anything.

We walked down Bourbon Street.  We walked to Frenchmen Street.  Ivan read that they have bars there that the locals go to.  We didn’t hear any good music so we walked back to the hotel. 

We watched a few episodes of The Inbetweeners.  Then, we went to sleep.
