After $1.8M renovation, Baker Hunt Center opening Covington teaching kitchen

COVINGTON, Ky.  Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center, completed a $1.8M renovation on the historic Scudder House building. After much enthusiasm for cooking classes from the community, the renovations included a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen.

Under the leadership of Chef Alex Noel, Baker Hunt is introducing over 30 new cooking and baking classes in the winter session which begins on January 3, 2021. A variety of in-person and virtual classes are available including:

  • New Year, New You series: In this class students will ditch fad diets and leave with a sustainable understanding of the basics of nutrition, healthy food preparation, and healthful eating. Students will also try their hand at preparing a delicious dish.
  • Kids in the Kitchen Series: In this much-requested format, adults and their children experience cooking together. Kids will grow their confidence and skills in the kitchen, and everyone will leave with a delicious meal and memories from the fun experience.
  • $15 Online Workshops: These affordable workshops are designed to be a fun experience in the kitchen for those staying at home. Students will join in a “cook along” and end the session with a delicious meal.

Baker Hunt takes COVID-19 precautions very seriously and the large kitchen space allows for students to participate at a safe distance. Class registration is now open, and spaces fill quickly. A schedule of classes and registration is available online at www.bakerhunt.org. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
