Additional Notes

  • Cancellation Policy: Refunds or class credit will be given in full if you cancel your registration at least seven days before the class, or if a class is cancelled.
  • Out of respect for people with chemical sensitivities, we ask that fragrances and scented products not be worn in class.
  • For your comfort, you may want to dress in layers; classroom temperatures fluctuate when ovens and stoves are in use.
  • For hands-on classes, you are welcome to bring an apron. Please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
  • You will usually receive 4 to 5 nice bites of each recipe prepared in class. We recommend eating a light meal or snack before class, as most samples are generally served towards the end of class.
