Chef Instructor: Patrick Aylward
Chef Patrick Aylward started working in the food industry as a young boy at the age of 14. After going to college for marketing and economics, he dropped out to become a chef. He started at Jeff Ruby’s Precinct, and shortly after moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin working for bakeries, Italian and new American restaurants. Upon moving back to Cincinnati, he worked at Salazar where he learned a respect for food and vegetables that will be instilled in me for the rest of my life. Patrick then worked for Panino, a local salumerie, and learned a respect for animals that will also last a lifetime. He currently works for Tano Bistro in Loveland, teaches at The Learning Kitchen, and run a small private dining/catering business. He loves to cook peasant foods, things with a short ingredient list, that require care, and attention to yield a scrumptious result. He aims to empower people who step through our doors of the learning kitchen. Picking up a knife and turning the heat on can be very intimidating. He hopes that through his experience and excitement he can empower you to cook new things, buy new ingredients, and explore the limits of your kitchen after taking a class.
