Information and Liability Release

Each class participant (parents, for participants under age 18) must complete an information and liability waiver form prior to class. Click on a box below to open the appropriate form. Once you have completed the form, you will be able to send it directly to us.  

What to Wear / Bring

There will be a lot of standing during class. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing, minimal jewelry, and closed-toe shoes. Avoid flowing sleeves. Please wear long hair up or in a ponytail.

We provide all the ingredients, tools, aprons and recipes during the class. Please bring an unbreakable water bottle for kids.

People who are 21 and older may bring alcoholic beverages for consumption during the meal. Please drink responsibly. Alcohol cannot be given to people under age 21 under any circumstances.

Logistics

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the start of class. There is ample on-site parking in the driveway. If you are dropping off children, please accompany them into the Kitchen before class begins and meet Chef Linda.

If you have not already submitted the information and liability release form, we will ask you to read and sign one prior to class.

If you'd like to leave a gratuity, click this link. Or, you can give it to Chef Linda directly after your event. Either way: THANKS!

After Class Pickup for Unaccompanied Kids: Kids can be picked up at the Kitchen entrance by you or someone you designate on the information form. We will require anyone picking up a child to show a picture ID. Sorry, we do not offer aftercare.

Allergies and Special Dietary Needs

You can let us know about any allergies or dietary needs by submitting the Information and Liability Release form in advance.
