Tonight, roll up your sleeves and prepare to discover how to cook New Orleans-style! During a cooking demonstration at the New Orleans School of Cooking, your chef will indulge you in everything that Louisiana cuisine has to offer. Following dinner, discover why New Orleans is known as the "Birthplace of Jazz" as you take in a spirited jazz revue at a local French Quarter jazz club. (B/D)
