We are here to share our love
of cooking good food.
We are culinary confidence builders on a mission to demystify the kitchen through cooking classes and events that are anything but boring. Our team of professional chefs and educators strive to help cooks of all skill levels learn, practice, and master the skills and recipes that help make cooking a joyful experience. Not only do we bring years of experience into the classroom, but our playlist is on-point, our bar is well-stocked, and we guarantee that you won’t leave hungry. Our goal at Tablespoon is teach cooks of all skill levels how to #cookgoodfood and reach their true potential in the kitchen.
Chef & Owner
Jordan Hamons started Tablespoon as a platform to share her love of food and help home cooks gain confidence in the kitchen. She is a classically-trained chef, culinary educator, and food and beverage consultant. Her experience includes working as a professional corporate chef, private chef, and caterer. Jordan continues to stay inspired through travel and exploration—learning international cooking techniques and sampling food from around the globe. Jordan is a graduate of the Lindner Honors-PLUS Program at the University of Cincinnati Lindner College of Business and completed her culinary training at Midwest Culinary Institute. Follow Jordan’s personal Instagram for the latest snack reviews, her obsession with the Container Store, or her second passion (after food): all things Disney.
At Tablespoon, we offer our students an up-close-and-personal experience with restaurant, culinary, and hospitality industry professionals from across Greater Cincinnati and beyond. Every member of our teaching staff has either led or worked in professional kitchens and food service operations, which means you’re learning from experts—they’ve already made all the mistakes, so you don’t have to! Each of our educators brings a unique perspective, background, and sense-of-humor to the Tablespoon classroom.
