About Us

Meet Sprouts Cooking School

At Sprouts Cooking School, we’re passionate about building a strong foundation for a lifelong love of cooking, nurturing adventurous palates and encouraging families to cook together.

Our near Indianapolis cooking schools with locations in Carmel and Zionsville, are host to single session weekend classes, family classes, weeknight classes, seasonal cooking camps and cooking themed birthday parties.

Our hands-on cooking classes for children provide guided instruction in a group setting where kid chefs and bakers will learn culinary fundamentals and skills.

Our engaging class themes ignite children’s imaginations and get them excited to explore new flavors and skills and expand their palates with delicious recipes. Your Sprouting Chef will be proud to show off their new culinary skills and recipes for the family at home!

Allergy & Inclusion Statement

Sprouts Cooking School understands that there are a growing number of food allergies in young children. We are and will remain a peanut and tree nut free cooking school. We will do our best to accommodate any other allergies if given advanced notice at the time of booking. If parents feel more comfortable, they are able to look at any labels ahead of time and discuss with the management team. Food should be fun for everyone!

Sprouts Cooking School believes that every child belongs and is welcome in the kitchen. We will always do our very best to accommodate the needs of every child. Due to the many different needs of children, if your child should require special accommodations, we ask that you please call us prior to registering, so that we may discuss how we can best meet your child’s needs and what class would best suit your child. Sprouts reserves the right to make accommodations that are in the best interest and safety of all children within the facility. Please email us at info@sproutscookingschool.com or call 317-688-7499 for more information.

Meet Sprouts Cooking School’s Founder & Owner, Stephanie Drewry

A lifelong Hoosier, Stephanie Drewry, is proud to have two Sprouts Cooking School locations nestled in the same Central Indiana area she grew up.

Originally launched in Drewry’s home, Sprouts Cooking School grew by leaps and bounds during its initial years and moved to a Carmel, Indiana storefront location in summer of 2017 featuring a unique kid-sized kitchen design.

As demand grew, Stephanie opened a second location in Zionsville, IN in October of 2022 with the same look and feel as her Carmel location.

Drewry is passionate about bringing kids and families together in the kitchen. She loves teaching new takes on favorite recipes, introducing fresh herbs and expanding palates. She beams with pride when teachers have a breakthrough moment with picky eaters and when her recipes resonate with her Sprouting Chefs.

During her days off from the helm of Sprouts Cooking School, she enjoys watching her three children play travel soccer, exploring the Indy food scene, chatting with local chefs, entertaining family and friends, creating new recipes and traveling with her husband.

As Sprouts Cooking School continues to grow, her goal is for every child to build a foundation for a lifelong love of cooking, to inspire and empower this generation of foodies, and to encourage families to get into the kitchen and cook with their kids.


“Cooking is a life skill that everyone needs to know. No matter what your age is, everyone needs to nourish their bodies and feed themselves. I’m passionate about bringing kids and families together in the kitchen.”
