  • Are your classes for beginners?
    We offer cooking classes for all levels of students. Some of our classes are more basic than others (Knife Skills, 101 classes, workshops, etc.) and are designed to provide a solid foundation of cooking techniques. Other classes such as Boot Camps delve deeper into the subject matter and offer an intensive cooking experience. However, all of our classes are suitable for both beginners as well as experienced home cooks. That’s because you will not only learn to make the recipes from that particular menu, you’ll get many more cooking tips and techniques from our chefs.
  • What is the difference between demonstration and hands-on classes?
    In a demonstration class, you observe our chef prepare the meal and get a generous tasting portion of each dish made. This type of class is best for those who like to watch before they do, as you’ll take notes and ask questions throughout the class. In a hands-on class, each student works in groups of 3 to 5 people to make the meal from start to finish. You’ll enjoy a full meal at the end of class with the other students.
  • How do I register for a class?
    Register online for your class from any device. If you are paying with a gift card, you will need to register for your class over the phone. cALL 585-553-1321
  • When do I pay for my class?
    As of January 2021, we transitioned to a pre-payment system, meaning you pay for your class at the time of registration. You also have the option to pay in advance with a gift card if you register by phone. This is to cover the operational and administrative costs incurred by. Also note that all classes have a one-week cancellation policy, and that Culinary Boot Camps have a two-week cancellation policy.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    All classes have a three-day cancellation policy, except Culinary Boot Camps which have a two-week cancellation policy. You must call to cancel an existing reservation, but please note there will be a 10% service fee on all cancelled reservations and is non-refundable and non-transferable. If you cancel past the 72 hours (3 days), you will not receive a refund for your class, but feel free to send a friend or family member in your place. Sorry to be blunt, but your emergency is not our emergency. This policy is firm and was acknowledged at the time of booking. Sorry, please don't ask and put us in the position of saying no.
  • Are we fed in class?
    During our demonstration classes, you will taste a healthy sampling of everything made in class. In our hands-on classes, you will be fed the equivalent of a full meal. If there are leftovers, you’ll even get to take them home!
  • How many people are in the classes?
    We accommodate between 13 to 25 people in our demonstration classes and between 8 to 20 people in our hands-on classes, depending on the class and it's complexity. If a class is full, it's best to call us to sign up for the waitlist as we will notify you if space opens up.
  • What should I bring to class?
    We are working to be a paperless company, so we email you the recipes one day in advance of your class. Feel free to print them at home and bring them with you, or bring your favorite device to use to display recipes on during the class. Printed recipes will be provided in some classes such as Knife Skills, boot camps, etc. as the need for note taking is greater. You can always request we print a copy for you if needed. We provide all of the cooking equipment and food. Wine, beer and soda are available for purchase. Your chef will recommend food-friendly wine pairings to accompany the dishes prepared in class. If you choose to bring in your own alcohol, keep in mind that a corkage fee will be charged: $10 per bottle of wine and per six-pack of beer.
  • What should I wear?
    Wear comfortable clothing and non-skid comfortable shoes, especially if you are taking a hands-on cooking class. We provide aprons to protect your clothing.
