Is there a local Creole or New Orleans-themed restaurant in your neighborhood or town? Perhaps they’d be open to offering some cooking lessons to young adults one evening, and then you can gather on Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) to show off what you’ve learned. If the cooking lessons aren’t an option, find a few delicious recipes on Pinterest, or follow a cooking video posted by Tasty. There is so much to try — jambalaya, gumbo, red beans and rice, king cake, bread pudding. Our mouths are already watering!
