Turner Farm Teaching Kitchen

Cincinnati’s premier cooking class space!

The Turner Farm Teaching Kitchen offers cooking classes and a state-of-the-art learning experience where chefs and other food and wellness educators make sustainability and mindfulness into a delicious and edifying experience.

Built in an exquisitely renovated, 100-year-old, two-story barn, cooking classes in the kitchen offer space for a chef to work with as many as eight different two-person teams at a time. Additionally, the space features closed-circuit TV, with two cameras capturing the lecture for an enhanced learning environment for 50 guests.

The Teaching Kitchen was built in consultation with the Culinary Institute of American and is intended for cooking classes geared toward using fresh-grown ingredients in such a way that promotes bodily health and mental well-being.  It is also a regular host of the University of Cincinnati Center for Integrative Health and Wellness to teach medical students and other health professionals valuable nutrition information, culinary skills and self-care practices. More information on these community classes can be found here.

For cooking class information, booking and availability, contact Mary Joseph at mary@turnerfarm.org

CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to the limited space availability, all payments for Turner Farm educational and cooking classes are non-refundable. In the event of inclement weather, classes proceed provided that the weather is safe for visitors to be on the farm. Turner Farm reserves the right to cancel events for any reason with a full refund provided to each participant.
