VIRGINIA BEACH selecttraveler.com 37 M A R C H / A P R I L 2 0 1 7 LANGLOIS NEW ORLEANS Born-and-raised south Louisiana chef Amy Sins describes Langlois' cooking classes as an intensive crash course in one of Louisiana's clas- sic dishes. "I want people to understand that there is a difference between Ca- jun and Creole cooking that developed from all these foods and flavors that met up in south Louisiana," she said, mentioning everything from French to Vietnamese cuisine. "We focus on the cultures that helped bring this great food to us." The trained chefs who work alongside Sins are fellow storytellers and food nerds who delve into the narrative behind the classic and modern cooking techniques and ingredients they use. "Groups who join us want the feeling of an authentic New Orleans din- ner party, and we give them that fun, unintimidating feeling," Sins said. Part of the fun is deciding where to take the class. Groups get to choose from an impressive lineup of unique and historic private event spaces and homes around New Orleans, including the Southern Food and Beverage Museum and the Dryades Market. With more than 1,700 restaurants in the city, Sins doesn't want her guests cooped up in a commercial kitchen but out in a space of their choice. And if groups don't want to get their hands dirty, the Langlois chefs are happy to oblige by doing all the cooking and storytelling themselves. W W W . L A N G L O I S N O L A .
