An Indianapolis Cooking Class That Is Unique

Chef JJ's in Indianapolis offers themed grilling classes where participants can learn, grow and eat amazing food.

Chef JJ’s is what can be described as an extremely unique experience by any standard. If searching for an Indianapolis cooking class, why not take a trip on the wild side with a grilling class, where the coals burn hot and the knives are sharp? Even more than a grilling class, this is Chef JJ’s where all techniques, including baking, roasting, smoking and grilling are demonstrated featuring the Big Green Egg.

The Big Green Egg is a hybrid of sorts, based off a traditional Japanese style kamado cooker that serves as a grill, a smoker and even an oven. Chef JJ’s uses these cookers masterfully to create amazing dishes for special events, private events and grilling classes. No matter the brand or style of grill that someone may have in the backyard, Chef JJ’s grilling classes provide expert instruction from actual chef’s. If learning new techniques, recipes and instruction is not enough, there is also the fact that each class provides the delicious creations for participants to enjoy.

When asked about the grilling classes, the owner, Chef JJ Boston had this to say. “Our grilling classes are an experience. We have Big Green Egg certified chefs providing instruction, interacting with participants and answering questions. The atmosphere is fun and we encourage active participation. Each class is centered around a theme and includes not only the recipes, but also four medium plate style courses. Ultimately our goal is to provide our clients with the tools and knowledge that they need to create the ultimate backyard lifestyle at their own home.”

Chef JJ’s takes pride in using fresh and locally sourced ingredients at both their Downtown and Broad Ripple locations. Grilling classes are offered year round on a regular basis. A few of the upcoming classes include:
