It is the customer's responsibility to consider all potential scheduling risks beforehand (e.g. booking during winter in MN - not zero risk, but also when we see higher demand). We do not assume that risk on each individual's behalf. It is suggested to have a plan B before booking (e.g. a sub that can come in your place) and should you have an unexpected event please, try to consider and treat our staff kindly and similar to any other event-business you prepay a concert/ticket/reservation for.
Cooking classes are NOT cancelled due to weather. Abundant Kitchen reserves the right to change class menus at any time due to seasonality or ingredient availability.
Cooking Class FAQ
What is the format of a typical cooking class?
The average duration of our cooking classes is 2.5 hours, and they are broken down into three segments: Introductory lecture or demo, hands-on cooking, and eating.
The class will begin with a short discussion or demo from your instructor. After, you can expect to work either on a team or individually to prepare the class menu. As a group, your class will prepare the selected menu in its entirety. In most classes, not every student will make every dish.
Learning happens throughout the class, and your instructor will often call out key techniques as they happen in each recipe.
Most classes conclude by sitting down as a group to eat what you’ve prepared, followed by a discussion of each recipe. You will leave with a copy of the recipe packet and a working knowledge of every dish that was made so you can recreate them at home.
Do I need to eat before class?
In most classes, you will be sitting down to eat a complete meal that you have prepared along with your classmates. Since this typically occurs towards the end of the class period, you may want to consider your hunger level before arriving to class and if you'd like to have a snack before you arrive or bring one with you.
What should I wear to class?
We suggest wearing casual clothing you can easily move around in, and highly recommend wearing comfortable closed-toe shoes. Long hair should be pulled back. MASKS ARE OPTIONAL.
What do I need to bring with me to class?
Unless otherwise noted in the class description, you do not need to bring anything with you to class. The kitchens at AK are fully equipped and aprons, recipes, equipment, food and wine are all provided for you.
Is there an age requirement?
We suggest age 14 for group cooking classes, unless otherwise specifically noted as a kid's cooking class.
When should I arrive for my class?
Classes begin promptly at advertised time. Arrival 5-10 minute before class is suggested.
