Retail Store Temporarily Closed

The health and safety of our guests and employees is always our priority.  We continue to monitor the quickly evolving news related to the coronavirus and are committed to taking every precaution as directed by our national, state, and local health officials.

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.

Kids Summer Camps 2020

Discover Your Inner Chef !

We understand that things are a bit unstable right now.  We're operating with the hope that life will soon go back to normal.  When that time comes, we'll all be looking forward to doing the things we love and missed out on while dealing with this crisis.

We want to assure you that, should the COVID-19 outbreak not be contained in time, we guarantee that you will be fully refunded for the cost of the camp. Of course, we all hope that doesn't happen, but if it does, you can rest assured we will do right by our customers.

Camps run Monday through Friday

Class is limited to 12 students with one Chef Instructor and two support staff.

Each student cooks individually at their own cooktop and prep station.

No group cooking here. No other camper will touch your ingredients.

Each day campers cook a full meal, and usually have leftovers to take home!

Level 1 Culinary Academy
  (Ages 8-12) (Ages 11-16)

Students will be introduced, hands-on, to all the aspects of the kitchen. They'll learn about kitchen equipment, safety, knife skills, and hygiene. Then the real fun begins as each camper will make their own foods like pizza, tacos, and the 5 mother sauces. We'll have a day of flavor dynamics where we focus on tasting and understanding the foundations of flavor. On the last day things will heat up with a Secret Ingredient Competition! 

Level 2 Culinary Academy  (Ages 8-12) (Ages 11-16)

Designed for students who already have some kitchen confidence and want to up their game.  We'll focus on techniques and skills that students can use in all their cooking, not just when making these recipes. Each day has a new menu and new techniques. Students will do everything from start to finish. Our classes are made to be very hands-on, without group cooking, except on the final day when students team up for battle in the Secret Ingredients Competition! 

A Culinary Tour of Europe  (Ages 8-12) (Ages 11-16)
This camp is a culinary tour of Europe as students learn hands-on how to make traditional dishes from four distinct cultures, then use the skills they’ve learned compete for a prize in a culinary battle! Students will spend one day each in England, Germany, France, and Spain learning related techniques, recipes, and culture.  On the final day, the Secret Ingredient Competition challenges students skills, knowledge, and creativity.
