A new Cajun and Creole cooking school and fine dining restaurant hybrid has just arrived in the Marigny. NOLA Defender reports that Langlois, opened by Louisiana native and cookbook author Amy Sins, offers a hands-on approach to dining out? demonstration dining? with the hope that what you prepare and eat will also be something you can recreate at home. Diners also get to decide how involved they want to be in the cooking process, so lazy butts take note... You can also just sit around, drink wine (BYOB encouraged) and wait to eat? like you probably do at Thanksgiving and every other holiday function? before returning home to your fridge full of leaky take-out boxes and soy sauce packets.
Sins hopes to fill a void in the New Orleans dining scene by teaching 'fancy homecooking' alongside a fine dining experience. She tells NOLA Def that "for being such a food focused city, there's no where that locals and tourists can get their hands dirty and learn to cook, without having to do the dishes." Langlois (1814 N. Rampart) is now open Friday-Sunday for lunch and dinner, but seating is capped at 20 people, and reservations must be made on line.
