Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

I can barely toast a slice of bread. Am I still qualified to attend a class?

Absolutely. We welcome and encourage all skill levels.

Can I sign up for a class online?

Do you even have to cancel classes? If so, what is your cancellation policy?

From time to time, a cooking class or demonstration may have to be canceled. Should that occur, we will notify all participants at least 24 hours prior to the class date and provide a full refund.

What if I need to cancel my class reservation?

As long as you cancel your reservation within 72 hours of the scheduled class time, a full refund will be extended. If you cancel less than 72 hours in advance, the full cost of the class will be forfeited.

Comfortable clothing and slip-resistant, closed-toe shoes.

How many instructors are there in each class?

Varies by type of class, anywhere from 1 – 4 chef assistants.

Will there be enough food served to constitute an entire meal?

It depends on the type of class. For the most part, we really like to cook, so you won’t go away hungry. But be sure to check the class descriptions, as food service will be noted.
