Culinary Schools in Cincinnati

Beyond the solid Midwestern cuisine, Cincinnati offers its burgeoning chefs myriad culinary adventures. The Northside has recently become a new hipster hotspot, and it's there where Cincinnati's most unique restaurants can be found, such as one locals' favorite - Melt. Throughout Cincy, it’s not uncommon to enjoy a pint of the locally-made Christian Moerlein beer while listening to homegrown bands. The Midwest's premier wine and food festival, the Cincinnati Food and Wine Festival, takes over the city in June. Later, November and December are all about the traditional Christmas markets, where homemade sausages and other tasty European treats abound. Many chefs make their own version of the city's famous chili, while farm-to-table American food emerges as one of the newest culinary trends.
