How We're Adapting to COVID-19 
Starting May 12th, we'll resume our regular classes with some changes to ensure safety.

Reduced Class Sizes
We're limiting class size to 7 guests or 5 couples to maintain 6 feet distance between guests.

Health Screening
Upon arrival each guest will be asked health screening questions and temperature will be checked.

Masks
Our Chef and employees will wear masks.
Masks will be made available and all guests will be encouraged (but not required) to wear a mask.

Nothing Shared, Nothing Passed
If you've taken a class with us you know we often pass and share common ingredients like salt and pepper. Now, each guest will have their own set of common ingredients: salt, pepper, oils, and butter in addition to having their own knives, cutting boards, spatulas, and other utensils as usual.  We are completely eliminating the need to pass or share any items. 

We'll have gloves available for any situation that might require them.  We'll continue to use a food-safe sanitizer to sanitize any and all appropriate surfaces before, during, and after class.

Together We Can Be Safe
Our staff is committed to following the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We'll continue to follow all CDC, State, and Local guidelines pertaining to the prevention and spread of COVID-19.  With your cooperation we're confident you can DISCOVER YOUR INNER CHEF in a safe manner.

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 10% on Kitchen Boutique product purchases and 20% 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.
