The Olive Twist, a culinary boutique and online retailer, allows you to taste and match over 25 olive oils and 25 of Italy's finest aged balsamic vinegar condimentos to your personal palate.  We encourage you to create your own twist and enjoy the experimentation of flavor fusions.  As a bonus, our samplings are rich in antioxidants that add to our health benefits without losing the quality of flavor.

2015 Cooking Classes Announced

The Olive Twist is excited to announce our 2015 Cooking Class Line-up!

We have over 15 classes planned in 2015 with something for everyone, ranging from a Simply French cooking class to a class on making Pierogies — or try a class on Spanish Tapas or Cheese Making! Check back often as new classes may be added.

Depending on the class, you will learn techniques; flavoring; pairings of oils, vinegars, cheese and occasionally beverages. You will enjoy at a minimum a hearty sampling to a full meal in all of the classes.  You may take notes as you watch our instructor, ask questions throughout the evening and leave with the recipes to recreate the dish in the comfort of your own home.  We also provide a goody bag with a variety of brochures, samples, tips and treats.

As a bonus for attending a class, you will receive a STUDENT DISCOUNT.  The $5.00 discount may be applied to any purchase of $9.99 and above in our store the day of your scheduled class.  Student Discounts may not be combined with any other discount or special offering.

The format will be Semi-Hands-On or Demonstration-Style for the classes.

In Semi-Hands-On Classes, you participate in a portion of the cooking so you can master the techniques. Our instructor will discuss the process of each dish being prepared and will give you valuable tips as you work together.
Demonstration-Style Classes are an interactive look at cooking. Even though you are being taught by watching, you will learn about the food being prepared for you during the class.  You will enjoy each course being prepared by the instructor, so please come hungry!

Because of limited space and equipment, most generally we will not do full hands-on classes.

We hope you will join us many times during the season. Remember — registration is REQUIRED for all classes by calling 260.436.3866 or registering online.

See our Cooking Classes page for further details.

For us to keep our classes comfortable, our classes well attended, our food fresh, and our food expense to a minimum, we must impose a cancellation policy.

A two-week notice is required for cancellation of any class.  If you do not cancel by calling 260.436.3866 two-weeks prior, we will expect you to be in attendance on the scheduled date, and we will prepare accordingly.

If you need to cancel, and you do so before the two-week date marker (by 6pm close of business), we will issue you a credit. No cash refunds.  We will issue the credit to the same credit card which was used to register, or a store credit will be issued and mailed to you for cash and check registrations.  We would love to have you send a friend in your place, in lieu of canceling.
