The Findlay Kitchen is a nonprofit food business incubator located near Findlay Market. Its mission is to enable a thriving community of food entrepreneurs. The Jaded Fork is a Cincinnati-based catering company that specializes in locally sourced ingredients. 

Chef Lindsey is the owner of The Jaded Fork. Chef Lindsey Cook began her culinary career working in her hometown of Hamilton, Ohio. At 14, she was washing dishes at the Academy and soon became a car hop at Jolly’s Drive-In. Lindsey became intrigued with food service and began to explore baking in high school while working at the international bakery in Jungle Jim’s.  She attended Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina, where she earned her Associate's in Culinary Arts and her Bachelor's in Food and Beverage Management.
