Learn To Cook With Celebrity Chef Maneet Chauhan

Over the past few years, as Nashville’s dining scene has grown, we’ve welcomed a host of new restaurants from local chefs and, along with those, new spots from more than a few famous food providers — Top Chef and Iron Chef contestants, food show hosts and judges.

Back in 2014, I wrote about where to find celeb chefs’ food in Nashville, and the landscape has only broadened since then.

I still think it’s noteworthy (and I’ve found, delicious) to be able to sit down for a meal designed or prepared by some of the culinary world’s best-known names. But here’s a new twist: getting to learn how to cook from one of the A-listers of that food-world A list.

Chef Maneet Chauhan — the culinary star behind Nashville’s Chauhan Ale and Masala House, an Iron Chef and The Next Iron Chef competitor and judge on Food Network’s Chopped — is now inviting eager Nashville learners into her kitchen for summer cooking classes, and two more sessions are currently on the books.

During chef Chauhan’s cooking classes, classmates are broken down into small groups for hands-on learning, each group preparing one of five courses. (That includes a mixology course — as one of the founders of Franklin’s Mantra Artisan Ales, too, Chauhan doesn’t ignore the art of the beverage.) After the learning and cooking is complete, everyone joins to partake in the meal together, and takes home a collection of Chauhan's recipes to further your skills at home.

Given chef Chauhan’s global culinary background (with an emphasis on Indian food), participants can expect a menu that’s big on creativity and flavor. And if you’ve ever watched cooking competition Chopped, you know that being on the receiving end of Chauhan’s advice and expertise is a valuable thing.

The next dates in Maneet Chauhan’s summer cooking class series:

Saturday, July 9, 11 a.m.

Saturday, August 6, 11 a.m.

Tickets run $129 per person (21 and up), and classes are three hours long, and held at Chauhan Ale and Masala House (123 12th Avenue North, in The Gulch). Register through Eventbrite.

If you take part, tag me in any photos you post (Facebook, Instagram) — I’d love to see how the class unfolds for you.
