Best For NOLA natives; food truck fanatics
OK, so technically this cooking class happens before the holidays (it’s December 15), but do keep in mind St. Nick’s is December 6. Go big and skip the bonbons this year.
The instructor for the $65 session is Matthew Lewis, who will prepare barbecued shrimp, jambalaya, and bananas foster, plus demo “the basics of Creole cooking from trinity to rouxs and desserts.”
Anyone who frequents Lewis’s truck Where Ya at Matt will tell you his is some of the best Creole cuisine Seattle’s seen—not to mention a game changer when it comes to street food. You want to know his secrets. Plus, the guy’s a total charmer. Look at that smile. Cooking with him for a couple hours is a guaranteed good time.
