welcome to industry

move beyond recipes


The nuts and bolts of the kitchen!

If you love food, then welcome to Industry – a collection of live kitchen shows designed to introduce you to how restaurant-industry professionals look at food. 

Raise your hand if you already know how to follow a recipe!

Chef Dave Nelson started “Industry” in response to what he saw as the disconnect between recipe-based cookbooks or shows, and how chefs are trained to look at recipes as a series of techniques that come together onto a finished plate. 

Cooking Isn’t Rocket Science

While cooking is a broad subject, you will see that the techniques behind a recipe are common-sense and simple to understand. Every industry course is jam-packed with cool kitchen wisdom that you can use every day! 

Industry is Simply Different

No cuts, burns or special shoes! Just enjoy the show! Take one class and you’ll see the difference. Take ake a series and you’l start to see cooking in a whole new way …Industry offers short, fun and informative courses that fit into your life!  

Cooking Classes for the Masses have never been more relevant

In a culture that has lost its connection with real food – the simple empowerment of being able to feed yourself can be life-changing.

Proper knife skills make your food look…and cook better! We’ll work on how to hold and safely handle sharp knifes before we learn how to break a chicken, then chop, slice and dice our way through tons of basic kitchen cuts. You’ll go home with the raw ingredients and recipe for a hearty Chicken Soup. Think of it as Homework!

You should know your class changed my life, I apply what I learned every day
