Chef Instructor: James Hanser

Chef James grew up in rural northwest Ohio, moved to Cincy in 1998 and started working in the restaurant industry.  He fell in love with the craft. Mostly self-taught, he has honed his skills over the years working for nearly every restaurant group in town... Jeff Ruby's Steakhouses, Boca Restaurant Group, Orchids at Netherland Plaza, Whole Foods Market, Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, and many independently owned restaurants along the way.  In 2018, James started his own company called "Have Knives. Will Travel." as a personal chef, caterer, and in home instructor. He loves all types of food, but he is totally obsessed with braising, curing, and smoking meats and pickling. Inspired by his mother, a lifelong teacher, he began teaching at The Learning Kitchen and is loving every minute of it!
