FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DOES THE PRICE OF A CLASS INCLUDE THE FOOD COSTS?

Yes

 

WHAT DO I HAVE TO PROVIDE?

There is a preliminary brief meeting so I can get acquainted with your kitchen and appliances. You will be provided with a list of any items you will need to have available for the lesson that you do not already have. Most of these items required you will have in your home already and they are recipe specific. If you don’t have a vegetable peeler for example, you will need to acquire one before the lesson.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
