Tactix: Cooking Lessons by Irons in the Fire offers people of all culinary backgrounds an opportunity to grow in whatever capacity they aspire to. Whether you are trying to break into the kitchen or want to learn some specific techniques to refine your foundation, or simply want an activity to get the whole family involved—we have you covered. Our instructor hails from some of the best restaurants Minneapolis has ever produced, including Brasa Premium Rotisserie and Travail Kitchen & Amusements.

Our lessons are…

  • Technique Driven. We strive to develop your kitchen intuition by teaching fundamental techniques. Teaching you what is actually happening to food, other than going from cold to hot.

  • Tactical. Cooking requires planning, logistics and organization. This will ease your mind and reduce stress when you are preparing a meal for guests. Let us help you up your party throwing game.

  • Goal oriented. Our instructor comes up with a custom plan specific to your goals, as broad or specific as they may be.

  • Sensory. Cooking requires all of the senses. We want to help you learn how to get the most out of all of them. This will increase your capabilities with all of the aforementioned intuitive qualities of cooking.

  • FUN! If it isn’t fun, it isn’t worth it.

Our lessons are not…

  • Recipe driven, one-dimensional, repetitive, linear, boring, bossy lessons.

  • A lesson disguised in an excuse for you and your partner to have a date night while the poor instructor does all the work (apologies). We want you to have fun while in the kitchen and encourage drinking adult beverages, music, even dancing! But we aren’t showing up to make dinner for you (if you want that, check out our catering section!).
