Discover your Inner Chef

From the moment The Learning Kitchen was born, we knew we wanted our cooking classes to be different from others in the Cincinnati, OH area. Each month we offer a class calendar for cooks of all skill levels, using seasonal foods that are locally grown when possible.

Hands-On Cooking Classes

Our hands-on classes are truly hands-on, you'll cook at your own cooktop and eat all you cook...no group cooking here!

The center of our kitchen is a cooking island equipped with 12 student stations and an instructor's station. Each student has two burners, pots and pans and all the tools needed to cook the day's menu.

Our teaching chefs don't just tell you how to cook, you actually learn the techniques and recipes by cooking your own meal. From chopping the onion to sautéing the chicken to cutting the phyllo, you'll get to do it all—which really is the best way to learn. When the meal is complete, everyone gathers around the dining table to enjoy what they've created. All students receive copies of the day's recipes to take home.

After-Class Discounts

On the day of class you'll save 20% on Kitchen Boutique product purchases and future class registrations.  Cannot be combined with other offers or applied to gift cards.  Future classes must be booked in-store to receive the discount.

Cancellation Policy

A minimum 7-day notice via phone or in-person (not email) is required for class cancellations or rescheduling. This policy is in place to keep the costs of our classes as low as possible and ensure that seats are sold to those committed to attending.

In the event we have a waiting list for your class and we are able to fill your spot with someone from that list, we will issue a store credit for the cost of your class which can be used toward a future class.  

If you are unable to attend a class, you are encouraged to send someone in your place. We cannot make exceptions.
