JP Events cooking class
Our private cooking events offer a unique alternative from the usual dinner in a restaurant, and make for a truly memorable party, adding something different to your next birthday, bridal shower, anniversary celebration or client appreciation! If you are interested in hosting your own cooking event, we’ll help you plan each step, customizing the menu and style to suit your tastes and interests as you add a fun twist to your next get-together. Our professional chef instructors have a down-to-earth, relaxed teaching method that makes cooking easy and entertaining, regardless of your level of skill in the kitchen.
Cooking Class Workshops

Our three-hour hands-on workshops are interactive, informative and technique-oriented. You choose your menu ahead of time, and the entire party is involved in the cooking, with full instruction and assistance. After the food is prepared by the group, you’ll all get to relax and dine on all the dishes that you have made together.

Culinary Parties

Culinary Parties combine the best of both worlds. We do most of the work, and arrive with most of the prep and mise en place done, allowing you and your guests to be fully active in the final preparation of the menu. These events combine an element of education with fun and entertainment, to pair nicely with your dining experience.

Cooking Competitions

We’ll plan your very own Iron Chef party, where we unveil the Mystery Ingredients on arrival, and it’s then up to each team to create their own winning dishes. You’ll have help and advice from our professional chef and use of our fully-stocked pantry, before your plated dishes will be judged by an independent panel and the winning team duly crowned. It’s a night full of laughs and good food for all, so may the best team win!

Cooking Demonstrations

Our two-hour demonstration classes are relaxed and informative as our instructors take you through a menu that you help design. Each guest will receive a complete recipe booklet and get to enjoy each course as it is prepared by our chef.

Culinary Classes

What Our Happy Clients Have to Say

Brittani T.

I have used JP Events since 2015 and they never let me down. The service is always impeccable, the food is always delicious and Aundrea always seems to have just the right idea. I would never use another catering company and neither should anyone else! Love, Love, Love them!!!

Carol S.

Because of JP Events, my daughter's wedding will never be forgotten. The service was flawless and our guests are still raving about the food and décor. I had never heard of this company before we worked together and now I will never forget them. They have certainly become my vendor of choice and I am telling everyone I know about them. Thank you to Aundrea and her team for showing me that Great customer service still exists.

Rebecca G.

The food was fabulous, well prepared, and delicious!! The decor was flawless and beautiful. And Aundrea was wonderful to work with. She handled all the modifications to suit my taste!!.

Danielle J.

Very professional and timely set up. Menu items were just as ordered. It was nice to have JP Events cater for the event in Nashville since I live out of town.

Marianne C.

All smooth from start to finish. Timely responses, reliable delivery and provisions, and great food.

Jamie B.

I hired JP Events to plan and cater my son's 2-year-old birthday party. My husband and I met with Aundrea and her team at length via Skype and she was the consummate professional. She was on a tight timeframe and budget and she knocked it out of the park. I found her to be a great communicator and although I was worried about our timeframe, she put my worries to rest and pulled off a beautiful party that my guests are still complimenting me on. Oh, and she did it on my budget as well. I will definitely be using them again and I would recommend them to anyone.

Ines M.

Great service! Delicious paella and brownies! Thank you for your flexibility too. We had to reschedule at the last minute and everything went smoothly.

Laura T.

We had a great experience working with Aundrea for my daughter's carnival birthday party. She had some great ideas and made the day very special for my daughter and her friends. She will also be handling our housewarming party once construction is concluded.

Valencia R.

I would like to thank everyone at JP Events for the wonderful job they did at my daughter's wedding last weekend. The food was delicious, the staff was great, and we appreciated the special considerations given to the bride and groom and young children. I would highly recommend JP Events to anyone!

Cindy B.

If you're looking for a very knowledgeable, flexible, professional, experienced, and kind wedding planning company, do not look any further. Aundrea is the BEST wedding planner any bride or groom could ask for! Vendor selections, decor ideas, scheduling, & problem-solving, she and her team had an answer for everything! Naturally, there are moments as a bride that you are stressed, but once you speak with Aundrea, she makes your worry disappear! On the day of our wedding, I can't begin to describe all her help! Our wedding was flawless, beautiful, and fun, all because of her.

Wayne M.

As a single father, when my daughter tells me she is getting married, you can imagine the anxiety that took over. Then I met Aundrea at JP Events. She and her team are unbelievable. They are an absolute Godsend! We met with 3 of the big planners in Nashville and none were even close to being as real and down to earth as Aundrea. It seemed like she had an answer for everything. I can’t believe how stress-free everything was for us and I’ve never seen more gorgeous flowers at a wedding. They were able to handle our catering in-house and the food was so delicious.

LaShae M.

I only have nice things to say about Aundrea and JP Events. I tend to be a bit of a control freak, especially when it comes to my children and their birthdays, but something about Aundrea made me completely trust her and she did not disappoint. She came fully prepared to for the event, email RSVPs came in less than 24 hours, she took care of things that I never would have thought of and she arranged decorations exactly to my vision. Her hard work allowed me and my family to relax and enjoy your special day with our children, we cannot thank her enough!
