Cooking Class FAQs

Do I need to make reservations?

Reservations are required by all participants. Seats are limited so groups are recommended to reserve seats as early as possible. Reservations can be made via phone, email or purchased through our website. Reservations must be confirmed by our cooking class coordinator.

 

What if I want to attend a class that’s full?

Waitlist options are available if a class happens to be sold out. We do have students that sometimes cannot make their reserved seat, allowing our patient ‘waitlisters’ an opportunity to participate.

 

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations for a cooking class seat must be made no later than 12 pm, one day prior to the class date. No rain checks or credits for future classes will be issued for cancellations made after this time.

 

Where is the class?

All hands on cooking classes are held in our commercial kitchen on the lower level of Grace’s Marketplace. All guests must walk down 1 flight of stairs which is not handicap accessible. Each class includes a full cooking demonstration and multi course meal. (Certain menu items are subject to change due to availability.)

Please note: Because of working in close proximity of each other, seating is offered by request but not recommended. We encourage and suggest that everyone remain standing for the duration of the class.

 

Can I book a private class/party?

Absolutely. Private classes range from 6 – 12 guests and a variety of menu options are available. Dates are subject to availability from the chef.

 

Is there a different price if I don’t drink wine/alcoholic beverages?

Unfortunately not. Although we will offer alternative soft drinks or water, a discounted rate is not offered.

 

What do I wear?

Please dress comfortably as if you were cooking in your own kitchen. We will be moving around, rolling up our sleeves and standing for approx. 2 hours.

 

If I don’t like/can’t have one item from the menu, can I switch it out for something else?

We believe that cooking is always open to interpretation and flavors are a very personal experience. You can absolutely request menu substitutions 1 day prior to the class, which must be confirmed by the cooking class coordinator and chef. We cannot alter the menu while the class is in session.

 

Can I bring a minor to the class?

Although we recommend those attending to be over 21 due to wine service, we recommend no one under the age of 16 attend the class. There are gas burners, sharp knives and other kitchen tools that may not be very child friendly.

Please note: There is no discounted price for bringing a minor to the class.
