What is the cancellation policy?
A full refund or store credit will be given for cancellations up to 48 hours before class time (unless noted differently for a specific class). No refunds will be given for cancellations less than 48 hours before class time, or for "no shows". Similar to a sporting event or a play, the show must go on!
How long are the classes?
Demonstration classes usually last about 1 1/2 hours and participation classes usually last about 2 hours.
Do I get to taste what is prepared?
Yes! The cost of the class includes a generous tasting of everything prepared, along with a glass of wine that is served with the meal. Instructors may have to substitute ingredients, depending on availability.
Do I need to bring anything with me to class?
Just your appetite for food and learning! We will provide all food and equipment necessary to prepare the meal.
What should I wear for a participation class?
We recommend that you wear comfortable casual clothing, and closed toed shoes. Tank tops and flip flops are not recommended since you will be in a working kitchen using knives and hot stoves and ovens.
I only see classes listed for a few months, will there be more classes posted?
Yes, since we offer so many classes, we only list about 2 months of classes at a time on our classes page. As one month ends, we will post the classes for the following month.
