Former New Orleans plantation now a culinary school
Former New Orleans plantation now a culinary school A culinary school in New Orleans, Louisiana, is using a beautiful 18th century home as its headquarters. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the New Orleans Cooking Experience is operated out of a Creole plantation house that dates back to as early as the 1790s.
The school is a unique experience in its own right. A long list of local celebrity chefs take turns hosting classes that often boast Creole or Cajun influences. While people participate in the program in homes of creating delicious food and gaining improved cooking skills, the building is also one of the highlight of taking classes.
According the news source, the magnificent building is known as the House on Bayou Road and is furnished with antique furniture and lavish hardwood flooring. Although houses like this are rare, installing the same kind flooring can provide homeowners with a similar design and several other benefits as well.
The World Floor Covering Association reports that hardwood floors bring warmth and character to any room. The material is fairly easy to keep clean as well, as a simple broom can help corral most dust and dirt.
