Hands on Cooking Classes

The Little City Cooking School is a hidden gem of fun located in a 1926 home in Oakwood, Ohio. Enter from the back porch and step into an evening of learning and fun. Enjoy your own station complete with cooktop, cutting board, apron and all the tools you will need to create 3-4 courses of amazing food! Our chefs will teach you through all the steps of each dish and answer all your questions as you go along.  Cook time is usually 2 hrs and then you can leave or stay and relax in our lounge until 10:30 pm.

What people are saying...

The small class size ensures one-on-one interaction and the ability to ask lots of questions... Chef Jo couldn’t be any nicer and the fact that everything is pre-measured and ready to go ensures you won’t have to wait long to start eating the appetizer you just cooked up.
The Little City Cooking School was an EXCELLENT location to start my Bachelorette party. Chef Jo and her staff were fun and engaging, and the food, AMAZING.

Attendees are rewarded with an assortment of fine chocolates at the end of each evening, and guests are invited to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy throughout the class – there really is something for everyone!
The Little City Cooking School is one of the Dayton area’s best hidden gems.

Boyfriend and I went there for Filet Mignon date night...what a meal! Food was excellent, and Chef Jo was a fantastic teacher. Answered all our questions and at the Little City Cooking School, you’re not just watching a demonstration, you’re doing the cooking yourself! Cozy, relaxed, fun atmosphere. Highly recommend.
