It’s long journey from Africa to the Blues and Jazz-filled streets of New Orleans. Make Gumbo, one of the most definitive dishes of Louisiana, and experience the food behind the culture as you sail down the bayou to create this mouth-watering stew.

Techniques you will learn:

  • Learn the holy trinity of vegetables, how to make a Cajun roux and the special spice mix that create the flavour of Gumbo. It took Wayne many years to perfect this version for the home cook.
  • Wayne Clarke is a professional Chef and Baker. His focus is on how to adapt his knowledge to suit a domestic kitchen so that you can achieve the best results at home. He is now the resident chef at Leeds Cookery School.

Recipes:

Full recipes, including ingredients list and method, are provided for you to take home to add to your repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again.

  • Chicken, Prawn and Chorizo Gumbo
  • Rice with Red Beans

What you can take home:

There is a tasting session after each class where you have the chance to sample the tutor’s version of each dish. You will also take home Chicken, Prawn and Chorizo Gumbo, and Rice with Red Beans.

Please note that you do not need to bring any equipment or ingredients with you as this will be provided by the cookery school and is included in the cost. You will however need to bring a couple of sizeable (minimum 1L) food storage containers to take your food home in.
