Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions.
How does it all work?
Here is a little breakdown of the process from Start to Finish
Do you ship the ingredients?
No. We've found that shipping perishable ingredients is unpredictable and very expensive. A huge part of our success relies on participants creating delicious food and that is directly a result of fresh ingredients. We could not guarantee fresh ingredients if we delivered by UPS or USPS. Many of us have groceries delivered to our door with Instacart or PrimeNow. We feel that it's easier and more reliable for participants to just add a few ingredients to their existing delivery orders. You also have the option to pickup the ingredients in-store if you prefer. Regardless, if you buy the ingredients, you have control over freshness.
How long are the classes?
On average, our classes are 1.5 hours long.
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
We create menus for vegetarians, gluten free eaters, and vegans all the time. Often, we simply create a menu that is compatible with the group as a whole rather than create separate menus for those with dietary restrictions.
What kind of kitchen tools do we need?
All of our recipes are created with a basic kitchen in mind. That means no fancy blenders, pressure cookers, or sous-vide machines. Do the fancy tools save time, yes, but we like to teach people using basic tools like a standard chef knife, a basic pot and pan set, a strainer, cheese grater, etc.
What payment options do you accept?
We send an invoice via Quickbooks, which can be paid using a credit card.
