Cook the Book

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$65.00 – $98.00
Join Chef Teryi Youngblood Musolf on Saturday, March 25th at 12 PM for a Cook The Book cooking class. We’ll be working from Cooking For The Culture: Recipes and Stories From The New Orleans Streets To The Table, by Toya Boudy.
Here’s your chance to learn from one of the biggest culinary talents around as Chef Teryi gives us the inside scoop on a brand new or beloved cookbook, and the confidence to crack into it ourselves once we get home. 
You’ll have the chance to work alongside Chef Teryi on two different recipes, asking questions and taking notes on techniques and tips of the trade. You’ll get to hear what makes a good recipe great, and get some background on what this cookbook is doing like no other. At the end of the class, you’ll have a glass of wine and sample what you’ve made, and maybe get to take home a little something special too. It’s an afternoon of delicious education.
Your ticket covers the cost of ingredients and instruction, with the option to add on the featured cookbook.

An intimate celebration of New Orleans food and its Black culture from a born-and-raised local chef.Toya Boudy’s father grew up in the Magnolia projects of New Orleans; her mother shared a tight space with five siblings uptown. They worked hard, rotated shifts, and found time to make meals from scratch for the family. In Cooking for the Culture, Boudy shares these recipes, many of which are deeply rooted in the proud Black traditions that shaped her hometown. Driving the cookbook are her personal stories: from struggling in school to having a baby at sixteen, from her growing confidence in the kitchen to her appearances on Food Network. The cookbook opens with Sweet Cream Farina, prepared at the crack of dawn for girls in freshly ironed clothes—being neat and pressed was important. Boudy recounts making cookies from her commodity box peanut butter; explains the know-how behind Smothered Chicken, Jambalaya, and Red Gravy; and shares her original television competition recipes. The result is a deeply personal and unique cookbook.


Toya Boudy has appeared on Guy’s Grocery Games, TLC, and Food Network. Crowned Best Home Cook by Hallmark’s Home & Family Channel, Boudy is an ambassador for the New Orleans Multicultural Tourism Network. She lives with her family in New Orleans, Louisiana.
