Consent Form - Assumption of Risk Release

Consent Form, Assumption of Risk, Waiver and Release  

The class or classes I am registering to take with Babylon Mercantile are for the purpose of learning to cook, which involves preparing and cooking food.  

Like all cooking activities, certain risks and dangers arise, not all of which can be described herein, but may include, without limitation, cuts, scrapes, scratches, puncture wounds, thermal burns, chemical burns, scalds, injuries from using cooking equipment and instruments, eye injuries or irritation, skin irritations, allergic reactions, food poisoning, slips, falls, and choking. We will do everything in our power to educate and demonstrate to prevent any accidents.  

I have read the aforementioned risks and I am familiar with the nature of the classes and activities involved in the cooking classes. I understand and appreciate the inherent risks and the types of injuries that may occur as a result of my participation. I assert that my participation in Babylon Mercantile classes or activities is voluntary, and I knowingly assume all risks associated therewith. I understand that I am ultimately responsible for maintaining the quality of the food I prepare, cook and eat during any class or after any class.  

I alone am responsible for protecting myself against allergic reactions pertaining to food. Further, in consideration of my ability to participate in a class or activity, I do hereby waive, release, indemnify and shall hold harmless Babylon Mercantile and its owners, members, managers, officers, directors, chefs, employees, attorneys, agents, and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”), from and against any and all demands, claims, losses, injury, damages, liability, attorney fees, costs, and/or expenses of litigation, in law or in equity, whether known or unknown, that have arisen or may arise from my participation in or attendance at any classes or activities provided by Babylon Mercantile or from my use of any recipe, skill, technique, or method learned from Babylon Mercantile or in any of Babylon Mercantile classes or activities . 

 Further, I promise not to sue any of the Released Parties for such demands, claims, or liability.
