cooking classes


Updated Covid-19 message about Cooking classes at Nestle Inn:  We have resumed cooking classes as socially distanced and masked experiences.  You will have an individual work station so that you can work at your own table or work with the person who you came with.  Classes are limited to 10 people.  The cooking classes at Nestle Inn are a fun and safe experience during this uncertain time of knowing when and where to go.
*************************************


Cooking classes at Nestle Inn are always informal and fun. Each class will provide you with the skill to prepare what you learn at home. Our Chef instructors are some of Indy's most talented chefs from Culinary Programs and from local restaurants and food venues from around town.
Get a group of your friends together.....grab your best friend, grab your mom or just come solo! Private cooking classes are available as well as team building classes with your co workers. Class size is limited to 10 people.

CLASS DETAILS

Classes are held on differing dates. Friday classes are from 4pm -5:30pm, Saturdays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm and Sunday classes are from 2:30pm to 5pm. Classes are open to all  (21 and over) and no previous cooking experience is necessary.

Classes are $80 per person and include all chef instruction, food and beverages. Some classes are $90 a person (Christmas classes and sushi classes) due to the use of specialty products. Purchase 4 classes and save $20. 
To register for a class, please click on the class topic that fits your interests below. Registration for each class is on Eventbrite.com.

If you are using a gift certificate you may also register at Eventbrite.com. When prompted, enter the code from your gift certificate. If you are signing up two people, you will need to purchase each ticket separately, using the same code for each ticket.

Be sure to check availability for a guest room on the day of your class.  Mass Ave waits for you after your class to play all evening and then walk home to Nestle Inn.  With a cooking class, receive $20 off your room rate single or double occupancy.

If you have any questions, have difficulty signing up or if you just prefer to sign up by talking with us, please call us at 317 610 5200 or e-mail us at reservations@nestleindy.com.
