9.What if I have a dietary restriction?

All good! Most of our classes are centered around dietary restrictions. Please notify us of any restrictions or allergies you might have as soon as possible before the class and we can to accommodate. While we are as cautious as possible with allergies and sensitivities, we cannot guarantee cross contamination will not occur (had to say it ... you know the deal).

10.Will we have a chance to take photos?

Yes! We will be taking some action shots while you cook and a group class photo. We also recently added a food photography area to the kitchen so you can take that Insta-ready photo of the final meal you cooked ... props, lighting and all!

We will share all photos within our post-class follow-up (including recipes, etc.). We'll also have a class hashtag on social media that everyone can post to.

13.do I need to take notes?

Feel free to take notes during class to remember everything we discuss. We will send out a follow-up email to address any questions or specific topics that we keep in our “parking lot” during class. This is to make sure we have plenty of time to complete our cooking and still get to answer all questions!
