Amy Cyrex Sins, Chef/Owner of Langlois Culinary Crossroads,
Receives Top Culinary Honors

Presented with Best Chefs of Louisiana Award by
American Culinary Federation
- New Orleans

April 12, 2014 (New Orleans, LA) - On Tuesday, April 8, the American Culinary Federation - New Orleans (ACFNO) presented Amy Cyrex Sins, Chef/Owner of Langlois Culinary Crossroads, with a 2014 Best Chefs of Louisiana Award in the Up and Coming Chefs category. With this award, Amy, an international award-winning cookbook author and reality cooking competition winner, joins a talented roster of 30 chefs from a range of restaurants and catering operations. The chefs were recognized at the annual Best Chefs of Louisiana event at Generations Hall, benefitting Children's Hospital's Emergency Transport Program and ACFNO's culinary scholarship program.

"Best Chefs of Louisiana is a prestigious award by the top culinary organization in the country, and I am honored to be included," said Amy Cyrex Sins, Chef/Owner of Langlois Culinary Crossroads. "We've had an incredible year at Langlois, and we look forward to building upon this momentum in the months ahead. Our mission centers around celebrating our region's Cajun/Creole culinary roots."

Launched in November 2012 by Louisiana native Amy Cyrex Sins, Langlois Culinary Crossroads is an innovative New Orleans-based dining experience combining the quality of a restaurant with the style of a cooking school. Under Amy's leadership and guidance, Langlois has been named one of the "Best Cooking Schools Around the World" by Travel & Leisure, in addition to major recognition by Bloomberg Businessweek.

Amy and her talented team of local chefs offer the highest-quality level classes, each with a personal opportunity to learn about cooking techniques and the area's rich Cajun/Creole culinary history. Also on tap are Iron Chef-style cooking competitions, corporate team building activities, hands-on cooking classes, and private dining events for groups of all sizes. In addition to enjoying an array of tasting menus and wine pairings, participants even get to take the restaurant-style recipes home so they can impress their friends and family with a not-so-home-cooked meal in the future.

This spring Langlois offers a range of lunch, dinner, and brunch classes, and classes this month incorporate elements of the traditional cuisines making up Creole cuisine: French, Italian and German. Also new are Ferrara Fridays, a cocktail, appetizer and dessert class, teaching guests how to concoct the perfect sazerac, New Orleans' signature cocktail. This event is named for the resident ghost that resides in their building, a turn-of-the-century Sicilian market originally called Ferrara & Sons.

Join the fun by reserving a class at http://www.langloisnola.com/ or by calling 504-934-1010. All classes are by reservation only.
