What to Expect

Discover the rich history and traditions behind the most iconic foods of New Orleans on this tasting and cultural tour of the French Quarter! 

 

Explore the oldest public market in the US, the French Market, and hear about its Native American roots and current-day role in NOLA’s culinary scene. Along the way, sample a beignet, brought to New Orleans in the 18th century by French colonists from “the old mother country” and also by Acadians.

 

Your local guide will then navigate you through the French Quarter, where you’ll experience the influence of Cajun and Creole cultures on New Orleans favorites like gumbo and sausages. Uncover Louisiana origins and farming traditions, which also link the African American and Caribbean communities.

 

Among other immigrant-inspired cuisines found here in the Crescent City, you'll get the chance to enjoy a signature sandwich, before ending with a sweet treat with ties to the city’s history and locally harvested ingredients.

 

Bon appétit!
