FAQs

 

 

 

What should kids wear?

Comfortable clothing that they can freely move around in. We will provide aprons and everything else they will need!

 

 

What age must kids be to participate in cooking classes?

"Parents and me" classes are designed for children ages 3 and up. All other cooking classes are designed for children ages 5 and up. All groups will be broken down by age. See our class descriptions.

 

 

Would a cooking  party be fun for boys?

Of course! Most famous chefs are actually male after all, right? Our classes are tons of fun for girls and boys alike. 

 

 

Can I have a cooking party for my child where there will be guests of varying ages invited?

Yes, we will work with you to design a party that is age appropriate for all your guests from the youngest to the oldest.

 

 

Are you a nut free facility? 

No.  But, any nuts that are on site are stored in enclosed containers.  All pans, pots, bowls, etc. are run through our washing machine. In our classes, most recipes we select allow the option of including or excluding nuts and we set up for each child accordingly.  For birthday parties, ALL our recipes are nut free. 

 

 

Do you accomodate children with dietary restrictions?

We try to accommodate children with allergies such as dairy, sesame, soy, etc.  Please let our staff know of any allergies or dietary restrictions when you register your child and we will always try to find a substitution for the student unless the recipe restricts it.   At each booking, be sure to provide allergy information, and make sure to update it as necessary. Please also indicate the severity of the allergy (for example, whether a child can be around the relevant food, and whether ingredients processed on shared equipment or in a shared facility are okay). If you have questions or concerns about particular recipes or ingredients that we use, give us a call and we would be happy to find a safe class for your child.  

 

 

Can I send a snack with my child?

No, we do not allow any outside food in our space. For the safety of our students, we need to minimize the risk of cross contamination (particularly with respect to nuts).

 

 

Do the kids eat what they make at the end of class?

Yes. We generally reserve time at the end of class to enjoy what we made. We suggest thinking of it as more of a snack than a meal, particularly for one hour classes.

 

 

Do the kids get the recipe?

Yes, we send kids home with the recipe(s) so they can get cooking at home! And with repeated classes, kids get to build their own cookbooks over time!

 

 

What can I expect at an adult cooking class?

We are focused on providing an entertaining and educational hands-on experience.  Most of our adult classes are Bring Your Own Bottle.  Please refer to the class description for more details.

 

 

What if I have never cooked before?

Our classes and events are set in a relaxing environment and are specifically geared to many skill levels ranging from beginner to more advanced cooks. So don't worry - there's something for everyone.

 

 

What should I wear for adult class?

Just comfortable clothing that you can freely move around in. We will provide the aprons and everything else you need.

 

 

What happens if a class is cancelled?

If we must cancel a class or event you will have a credit in the amount of your original purchase price. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, we will contact the students registered and arrange a credit. If a class is canceled due to inclement weather we can't always reschedule for a date that meets all the students schedules so we will issue a credit for the cost of the class and you can reschedule at your convenience.

 

Class participation policy

Unless specified otherwise, classes are drop-off– only. We must know 

who is authorized to pick-up your child from class. A class listed with caregiver includes one adult 

per child in the registration. No surprise visitors please.

 

Adult class registration is per person (and occasionally per couple). The more the merrier, so sign up with a friend and remember to BYOB (wine, beer, soft drink...).

 

 

Cancellation Policy

Green Apron Kitchen reserves the right to cancel/reschedule any class or mini-camp. All purchased tickets will be honored in the full amount paid, in the event of cancellation.

 

 

Parties & Private Events 

We reserve our kitchen just for you so all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. In order to hold your reservation a non-refundable deposit of $200 must be paid at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due on the day of the party. You must confirm the number of participants four(4) days before the date of the party. There is no outside food allowed in our kitchen with the exception of a birthday cake. Outside food is allowed in the adult louge for a lounge rental fee of $100. On rare occasions, we may have to reschedule or cancel an event. In these rare situations, you will be contacted via the phone number and email address provided as soon as the cancellation is made, and you will receive a credit for your deposit. 

 

 

Camps/Mini-Camps

Full payment is required at the time of booking.  If you cancel at least fourteen (14) days prior to camp start, you will receive credit towards other bookings at Green Apron Kitchen. If you notify us that you cannot attend within fourteen (14) days of a camp start, we cannot offer a credit.

 

 

Classes

Full payment is required at the time of booking.  If you cancel at least seven (7) days before a class you may either transfer your enrollment to another class or receive a credit. If you would like to switch into another class you must email the request to us with the class that you would like to switch into.  We will confirm via email if the class is available. If you notify us that you cannot attend within seven (7) days of a class, we cannot offer a class transfer or a credit.

 

Field Trips

Green Apron Kitchen offers unique and interactive experiences  with our customized field trips.  While cooking provides a great opportunity to sharpen life-skills and stir-up creativity, it is also a great recipe for soaking up knowledge from the basic cognitive subject areas! We can tailor your trip to focus on study areas such as geography, cultural studies, math, science, art, field study and so much more. We are a DOE vendor, also, and can provide in-school trips as well where we travel to you.
