Pizza 101 With Tablespoon Cooking Co.

Rikki Teeters

Eating Local is such an important part of Living Local in Ohio! When you eat local you are supporting local community members and small businesses. Eating Local also allows you to know exactly what goes in your food. Though there are many great restaurants in Ohio, sometimes the best locally made meals can be made in your home kitchen. At Ohio Explored, we have been making an effort to buy all of our food ingredients from local shops and farms.

Pizza is one of our favorite local meals. However, we have never been able to master the art of Pizza Making at home. That is until we found Tablespoon Cooking Co. We recently took their Pizza Making class at Findlay Kitchen in Over-the-Rhine. Owner Jordan Hamons and her team taught us how to make pizza dough, sauce, and toppings from locally sourced Ohio Made ingredients!

Tablespoon Cooking Co. even provides complimentary local craft beers and wines during the class. It makes for a perfect date night or evening out.

After our class we ate homemade pizza for the next couple of days and it was delicious each time. It is amazing how simple pizza is to make with local ingredients. We will never buy canned sauce or pre-packaged dough again. We really enjoyed our class with Tablespoon Cooking Co. and we will be signing up for another one very soon!

Cheese 101 at The Rhined

Rikki Teeters

We love cheese! When we found out about the new cheese shop opening in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, we were thrilled! The Rhined is an artisanal Cheese shop that carries Ohio Made cheese as well as many other high quality American cheeses. We recently took the Cheese 101 course offered by The Rhined!

We joined 14 other cheese lovers for a night of cheese tastings at The Rhined. Owner, Stephanie Webster, took us on a tour of 7 cheeses from all over the US. Our favorite cheese was a local cheese made in Kentucky called Kentucky Rose! Yum!

The Rhined uses handmade pottery as their dishes. Do you recognize this beautiful local pottery? It was made by our June 2017 Ohio Maker of The Month RHEINOceramics!

Studio Tour With Ohio Artist Ellebrux

Rikki Teeters

We were fortunate to get a behind the scenes look at the studio of local artist Ellebrux. Owner, Laura Brooks, was kind enough to allow us to hang out in her Northside Cincinnati studio yesterday afternoon. We are so impressed by this woman's talent. She hand makes everything from jewelry to art and gifts. Make sure to check out our interview with Laura from Ellebrux to learn more about her business and background. Meet Ellbrux on December 3rd at our Ohio Explored Holiday Maker Mart!

Candle Making at Manitou Candle Co.

Rikki Teeters

Today we ventured along the Ohio River in Cincinnati to find the cutest little candle shop, Manitou Candle Co.! We had a wonderful time making our own candles during their Weekend Candle Making Workshop! Mantiou is a unique Ohio-based shop that sells their own small batch handmade candles along with beautiful jewelry, accessories and locally made art work.

Our workshop instructor, Alli, explained that at Manitou the candles are labeled by number instead of by name. This allows people to select new scents that they are drawn to instead of scents that they typically select. Manitou has 100 different scents and we got to smell them all! During our class we learned how to make our own Natural Soy Candles! It was a delightful experience and we definitely recommend it!

An Autumn Stroll Through the Village of Mariemont

Rikki Teeters

We have lived near the Village of Mariemont in Ohio for the past 5 years. Every time we drive through it, it makes us smile. From the beautiful German architecture on The Mariemont Strand to the tree lined streets, this lovely little village is worth exploring soon! Make sure to stop in at the Mariemont Theater for a independent film or grab lunch at the Dilly Cafe!

This village is even more beautiful in the Fall! We just had to take a stroll through Mariemont to enjoy Ohio's nature and snap some shots with our phones!
