Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

Do your guest rooms have air conditioning?

Our guest rooms do not offer air conditioning. Our location just off the San Francisco Bay presents us with a mild climate, typically making air conditioning unnecessary. However, for those extra warm days (and we do get some of those!), fans are available upon request and we'd be happy to deliver one to your room. 

I have food allergies. Can I still attend all classes?

Our classes typically feature a fairly diversified menu and food items. Please make us aware of any allergies or dietary restrictions when making your reservation, and we’ll make every effort within reason to accommodate you.

What if I want to make a night of it and stay at the hotel, can I receive a special rate?

Yes, there is a special room rate associated with the Cooking School. Contact the Cavallo Point Reservations Desk at 888.651.2003.

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.

How many instructors are there in each class?

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

I want to have my next party at the Cooking School. Is this possible?

Yes, please contact us directly at [email protected].

What should I wear to a cooking class?

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

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.

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.

Can I sign up for a class online?

Yes, tickets can be purchased online through EventBrite. Just click on the class that interests you and click the Buy Tickets button.
