Welcome to our Kitchen! COOKS CUCINA is a partnership between the Freestore Foodbank, Cincinnati COOKS! and Flavors of the Queen City. We offer a full array of hands-on cooking classes, cooking demonstrations, and celebrity chefs to educate and inspire our patrons.
Our Kitchen will bring together friends, families and corporate teams offering a chance for them to bond through cooking while making a meaningful and worthwhile contribution. Proceeds from COOKS Cucina will benefit the Freestore Foodbank Cincinnati COOKS! Program.
Classes will be taught by our in-house chefs, as well as other and respected experts in the culinary field. These hands-on cooking classes, will feature local farms, presenting knife skill techniques and many different cooking styles. We will also have Steven King from Corkopolis talking about wine pairings, using wine and food to create magical tastings. Olive oil expert, Leah Jones from We Olive, will give tastings of certain vinegar, olive oil, and other ingredients to make your cooking experience “something to remember.”
Classes will be three hours of fun, good food, delicious wine pairings in certain classes and an opportunity to connect with new friends. The culinary classes will range in price from $69-$99 (includes the purchase of food), and price varies on the chef’s menu selection.
So please, join us and choose your culinary adventure. And remember that we are also available for special events, cooking parties and corporate team-building. Any questions about our cooking classes, please call Mike Van Oflen at 513–703-0880.
