Cooking Studio Policies


Seating begins 15 minutes prior to the start of class.


When you arrive, please take a minute to check in with a member of the Cooking Studio staff. 


Classes are designated Demonstration or Participation. In Demonstration classes, students observe as the instructor prepares the recipes. In Participation classes students prepare the dishes under the direction of the instructor/chef.  

Adult programming is exclusively for those guests 18 years of age and older.

During Class

Equipment and an apron are provided for your use during class. 

Class Cancellation

We reserve the right to cancel a class if enrollment is low or due to inclement weather. If a class is cancelled, students will be notified by phone or email.


Class fees are reimbursable up to 7 days in advance of your class. We understand that circumstances may arise that cause you to miss a class and we encourage you to send a substitute in your place. We will also gladly email the recipes from a missed class. When a refund is issued, students who paid by cash or check will receive a refund check. Those paying by credit card will be issued a credit towards their account.
