How many times have you pinned a recipe and never found the time to execute it?
Either you didn’t want to go shopping for all the ingredients you'd need or maybe you went out and bought all the ingredients — spending a small fortune. When you take a class at Antsy Nancy, all you need to do is register, show up, and have a great time learning something new.
This popular event space nestled off River and Craycroft Road is known for its exciting and innovative food classes and events, perfect for those who want to learn new skills and expand their palate. From hands-on cooking classes to themed dinners and wine tastings, Antsy Nancy has something for everyone.
Heidi Yribar, the owner, officially opened Antsy Nancy in October 2021 and was inspired by Nancy Rutherford, AKA her Aunt Nancy.
“When I was a kid, Aunt Nancy was the fun, cool, and young Aunt," said Yribar. "She’d lived all over the world, had multiple college degrees, took karate, jumped out of airplanes, and drove an Alfa Romeo convertible. She’s exceptionally artistic and creative too. Since retiring, she’s developed her quilting into an art form, made the cakes for at least a dozen weddings, and completed the Master Gardener Program with the University of Arizona."
No matter which event you choose, Antsy Nancy is sure to deliver a fun and educational experience that will leave you wanting more.
"My slogan is 'Antsy Nancy does it all … and so can you!’", said Yribar. "That’s how Aunt Nancy always made me feel and what I hope to replicate for our students in every Antsy Nancy class."
Antsy Nancy is located at 5655 E. River Rd., #101. To learn more about classes at Antsy Nancy and to register, visit antsynancy.com.
