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 3 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 6 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 anyone who misses a single class, no matter the reason, as it happens too often and we cannot handle that volume of make-ups.  Once you book your boot camp, make sure to mark (and prioritize) all the dates in your calendar. 


Because we know how disappointing it is to miss a class, you are always welcome to send a friend in your place (just send us their name ahead of class), and perhaps insist that they cook you dinner as repayment.  


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!

    Amazing job by the instructor. The food was amazing. I’ve never tasted anything like it, and I’ve been able to harness the techniques that he taught us in that class to enhance the cooking. I do at home.

    It was an interesting and fun class overall, and the instructor was great. I would have preferred a more hands-on class, though. This was more of a demonstration with a handful of hands-on tasks thrown in. Admittedly, it's hard to see how everything in this class could be made hands-on. It would be rather difficult to make just one or two biscuits, or to make a tiny batch of shrimp and grits.

    John was great! Informative teacher with a great menu planned. Food was delicious and John pointed out where we could make adjustments to his recipes based on our tastes. Will be easy to wow future brunch guests.

    Exceptionally well taught! Food was delicious, but salty ham substitiutuon for sausage made the shrimp sauce too salty on the grits. Hopefully, it will be cooked with sausages in the future.

    I would pay a little more if it meant higher quality ingredients considering the amount used. E.g. Butter. Otherwise enjoyed the course. Instructor was good.

    John was wonderful and imparted lots of great cooking information. I LOVED the eggs benedict especially substituting the english muffin with a slice of tomato, breaded, etc. It had a tartness that went great with the pancetta and egg. It was delicious. The shrimp and grits was great and the dessert delectable. I will go back for another class after the holidays.

    This class was amazing. the instructor was down to earth and really cool. he made it a very interactive learning environment. He also made adaptations for the meal since i don't eat meat, which was really considerate. i enjoyed the food a lot and left the course really full. this is my second class with this cooking school and i enjoyed the set up of the place and how small the group size was. definitely would recommend this class and the instructor.
