cooking classes

Updated Covid-19 message about Cooking classes at Nestle Inn:  We have resumed  cooking classes.  We have set up social distancing, mask wearing and individual work stations so that we can provide a safe and fun environment.  We just want to make sure we are conducting the classes in a safe environment not only in the kitchen but in our community as well.


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. Minimum class size for a private class is 10 with a maximum of 14.


Classes are held on differing dates. Friday classes are from 3pm -5pm, Saturdays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm and Sunday classes are from 3pm 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.
