Since 2008

The Learning Kitchen is Greater Cincinnati's premier cooking class destination. Our take on cooking is simple: it should be easy, fun and delicious. Discover Your Inner Chef in our truly hands-on cooking classes. You'll cook at your own cooktop and eat what you group cooking here!

Our State-of-the-Art Kitchen was designed around our educational cooking classes. Whether you're a gourmet chef, seasoned home cook or don't know the difference between a stock pot and a sauté pan, you'll find classes that give you the confidence and skills to cook great food.

Our beautiful Kitchen Boutique invites you to linger and ask questions. We encourage you to try products in the kitchen before you buy. It's an exciting, new shopping and learning experience.

What sets us apart from other cooking schools?

Upon arrival, each guest, or couple during Date Night classes, will have their own ingredients set out at their own cook station.

Each station is equipped with 2 induction cooktops, a cutting board, chef's knife, and the kitchen tools needed for the class.

Guests prepare and cook their own other guests will touch your food.

No Group Cooking Here! 

Parent-Child Summer Camp Around the World in 4 Cuisines Ages 8+

In this Parent-Child class one parent and one child work together at a single cook station

Around the World in Four Cuisines is a five-day culinary tour where you will learn hands-on how to make traditional dishes from four distinct cultures, then use the skills you've learned to compete for a prize in a culinary battle! Students will spend one day each in Mexico, Greece, Thailand, and Japan learning related techniques, recipes, nutrition, and a little bit of culture. On the final day, the Secret Ingredient Competition challenges students skills, knowledge, and creativity.

  • Classes are five consecutive days. Each class is two hours.
  • Each parent/child team cooks at their own cooktop/prep station. No groups cooking here. 
  • Every student will learn every aspect, not just bits and pieces. Hands-on learning.
  • Every day, campers will cook a full meal, and usually have leftovers to take home!
Monday: Intro & Mexico
Before we cook anything we’ll learn about kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, and vocabulary.  Once we are sure we know how to be safe, we’ll dive right into the food!  For this class we will focus on the food of Mexico, making homemade guacamole and beef and cheese empanadas - including the dough!  Menu: Homemade Guacamole, Beef and Cheese Empanada with homemade dough.

Tuesday: Greece
There is something magical about turning flour, water, salt, and yeast into a delicious bread.  After making the flatbread, students will fill them with marinated and pan-roasted chicken, cucumber, tomato, and onion, then slather on the tzatziki and drizzle with olive oil. It’s the kind of meal that always leaves you wishing you made more. Menu: Handmade Flat Bread, Greek Chicken Gyro with Tzaziki sauce.

Wednesday: Thailand
In Thailand, some restaurants will fill your table with all kinds of veggies, herbs, and proteins to be put into spring rolls.  You'll begin with a mini knife skills class as you prepare fresh spring rolls. Then you'll make everyone's favorite Thai food: Pad Thai. Menu: Fresh Spring Rolls and Pad Thai.

Thursday: Japan
Class begins with more knife skills as you dice veggies then scramble eggs and learn how to use a wok to stir-fry making fried rice the authentic way.  Next you'll you'll mix and make teriyaki sauce from scratch as you prepare chicken teriyaki. Menu: Egg and Vegetable Fried Rice and Chicken Teriyaki.

Friday: Secret Ingredient Competition

The whole week leads up to this.  Working in teams of two, students will take everything they’ve learned throughout the week and put it on display.  It’s a fun and friendly competition, and everyone at The Learning Kitchen is a winner, but our judges will have the tough task of choosing the young chefs who scores the highest based on taste, technique, creativity and presentation!  

The highest scoring chefs will be awarded a prize!
