Chef Instructor: Patrick Aylward

Hello there learning kitchen students! I’m chef Patrick Aylward. I started working in the food industry as a young boy at the age of 14. After going to college for marketing and economics, I dropped out to become a chef. I started working for Jeff Ruby’s Precinct, shortly after moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin working for bakeries, Italian and new American restaurants. Upon moving back to Cincinnati, I worked at Salazar where I learned a respect for food and vegetables that will be instilled in me for the rest of my life. I then worked for Panino a local salumerie and learned a respect for animals that will also last a lifetime. I currently work for Tano Bistro in Loveland, teaching at The Learning Kitchen, and run a small private dining/catering business. I love to cook peasant foods, things with a short ingredient list, that require care, and attention to yield a scrumptious result. I love being outdoors, spending time with loved ones, and showing the local restaurant community support. I aim 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. I hope that through my experience and excitement we can empower you to cook new things, buy new ingredients, and explore the limits of your kitchen after taking a class with us. Cheers! I hope to see you soon.
