Our kitchen is designed specifically to be a learning environment.

We will also provide you with recipes and “at home” instructions for all the menu items.

We will provide you with an apron, but we recommend wearing casual clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit messy in. We ask that you wear flat comfortable shoes. Please do not wear open-toed shoes or sandals. Please pull long hair back.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start time of the class. Once the class has begun, we cannot accommodate late arrivals.
