About Our Classes

At Artichoke we strive to provide demonstration cooking and classes to meet the needs of all levels of cooks. We are uniquely situated at Ohio’s oldest continuously operating public market, the historic Findlay Market in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. We will help you learn more about the wonderful finds at the Market and how to create amazing dishes with them in our state-of-the-art kitchen.

Artichoke is more than your favorite source for top-quality cookware and kitchen equipment. Artichoke is a community space and event center with an active demonstration kitchen. Treat yourself to the full experience! Come enjoy a fun-filled evening of camaraderie and culinary tips and tricks. Sample recipes while learning from our demonstration chefs as they work their kitchen magic. Classes are casual, intimate, and informative – so we welcome everyone from the novice to the seasoned home cook.

Our one hour classes include tasting portions of all recipes demonstrated. The informal tone of the class allows you to wander through the store and explore items at your leisure, to stand around the kitchen counter and observe the demonstration, or to pull up a seat for a close-up view of the techniques and products used for the class. Since all of our events are BYOB, we’ll be happy to supply the glasses for you to sip your favorite vintages throughout the evening. We suggest stopping by Market Wines before class so their knowledgeable staff can help you with an appropriate pairing.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations must be cancelled 5 days in advance to receive a refund; any cancellation after that will not receive a refund. If you have registered 3 or more people together, cancellation must be made 10 days in advance to allow us time to find replacements. If you are unable to attend, we encourage you to send someone in your place. If you do have to cancel within the allowable time frame and are unable to find someone to attend in your place, we would appreciate your letting us know so someone else may benefit from the open spot in the class. If we have to cancel a class due to inclement weather a full refund will be given. If, however, we hold a class there will be no refunds due to weather. Refunds for original payment by credit card will be credited to the original card; refunds for cash or check will receive a refund check. If payment was by gift card or store credit, a store credit will be issued.


Since all classes are BYOB, please feel free to stop by Market Wines beforehand, where their knowledgeable staff can help you select an appropriate wine to bring with you. We’ll provide the glasses and openers!
