School Notes:  

For NYC In-Person Classes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to enjoy at the sit-down meal (not including our baking or dessert classes).

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spatial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

We have a firm business days cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student.

Please note: Boot Camps require business days notice to be rescheduled.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.

Classes are not refundable.

For Culinary Boot Camps:

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time.

  • Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  • Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

In any event where a customer wants to cancel their enrollment and is eligible for a full refund, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount.

Thank you for understanding!

    Chef Susan’s class was amazing! Fun, informative and delicious! We learned about knives and skills to use them (bear claw). We then proceeded to cook fresh vegetables and chicken. We all participated and then sat down to eat our creation. I highly recommend this course for beginners (or anyone)! Chef Susan was knowledgeable, funny and very patient with her sous-chefs. Can’t wait to take another class (which I will be taking the dumpling class in October)!

    Susan was an extroidinary teacher, very dtailed and informative. We really enjoyed the class. It was hands on and interactive which is important when learning a new skill. Best part was getting to taste everything we created during class.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Great teacher, full of information, and really engaging. My absolutely only suggestion would be to ask people to introduce themselves before the class begins so there is a bit more camaraderie. But a fantastic class.

Participants particularly valued the advice given on preparing food faster and easier.

And the food was delicious. I will definitely sign up for more courses.” 2. "She was a great teacher, and we enjoyed learning from her. The school is small, with a maximum of 10 students in a class. This allows it to be intimate, so you get to know the people you're spending the next 3 hours with, and that adds to the interest and fun." 3. "Knowing how to use a chef knife correctly is life changing. I cook a lot of vegetable dishes and this will make preparing food faster, easier, and more enjoyable."
