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 cook...no 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.

Let's cook together again...!!!
 
...but not too together. Are you going a little (a lot) stir-crazy staying at home? We are too. While we still believe staying safe is the top priority, we're ready to cook with you again! Here's what we've got planned...

Regular Evening Classes: (Now Available) we'll resume our regular classes with some changes to ensure safety. We're limiting class size to 7 guests or 5 couples to maintain 6 feet between guests. We'll provide hand sanitizer and gloves when needed and we have eliminated any need to pass items. If you want to read more about all of the changes we've made, scroll to the bottom of this email. Sign up on our website as usual to reserve your spot and we'll see ya soon!

Private Daytime Classes: (Now Available) This is for couples, families, or groups who share a living space. Get out of the house and do something fun! The class will run just like our regular classes except you'll have the whole place to yourselves. Choose a day on our calendar and sign up to reserve a spot.  We'll then contact you to coordinate the menu, number of guests, time, etc. 

Virtual Classes: (Now Available) This is for work groups, friends, and families. We send you the recipes, grocery list, and setup instructions. Each person gathers their ingredients. Then we have a live Zoom video call. Our chef leads you through prepping, cooking, and plating the entire meal while everyone follows along at home (or just watch if they want). Viewers can ask questions and interact with the chef! Call or email us for more info and to reserve a time.
