Classes are three hours long. Please be courteous to your fellow guests by arriving on time. Most classes start at 6:15pm, please check your event for your starting time. Events will begin on time. Because each class has people with varying degrees of culinary experience, classes may finish early or run a little late. We trust that you had an enjoyable class and ask that you prepare to leave at the end of class so that the staff can begin their cleanup.
