Migration & Immigration Through Cincinnati: A Stir Cooking Club Event

  • Findlay Kitchen 1719 Elm Street Cincinnati, OH, 45202 United States

Cincinnati is a city with a rich immigrant history. Since our founding, it has been courageous people from other lands who settled here and made a home. This class will feature six special guests who will share traditional recipes from around the globe, each representing a wave of Cincinnati migration history.


The Stir Cooking Club classes are an intimate affair. Classes are taught by passionate home cooks with great stories to tell. You will learn new skills, share what you know (or don't know!) and leave nourished by great food and a better understanding of who makes up the mix in our city.

Stir is a variation on the traditional cooking class model. It is an experiment in social cooking and democratic learning. Instead of learning from an expert, Stir brings together community members to share their skills and expertise in a safe and structured setting.

Breaking bread at a shared table is a tradition that has the power bring together people from a wide swath of cultural, economic, geographic and generational backgrounds. Food is instantly disarming, and a well-recognized symbol of community and celebration. By building trust, social capital and a sense of reciprocity, participants leave the event energized not only to cook for themselves, but to be integrated into the larger culinary community anchored by the unique public space that is Findlay Market.
