In much of the world, oysters are a delicacy for a special occasion — but in New Orleans they’re the staple ingredient of an accessible everyday sandwich. Fried oyster po’ boys are up there with cajun cooking as great Louisiana culinary exports, and in this class Laura Pyles will teach you to make them from scratch. You’ll start by making your own homemade po’ boy rolls as part of a cornmeal fried oyster po’ boy with creole slaw and remoulade; plus a variation, the fall-apart roast beef po’ boy with debris gravy and onion straws. You’ll learn how to make from-scratch Louisiana-style hot sauce, and some techniques for dough making, frying, and roux.
