Q: What should I wear to class?

A: No need to go and purchase a new chef coat, any comfortable clothing is fine. For all hand-on classes, please, no open toed shoes (comfortable footwear that is relatively non-slip is preferred)  or long,loose, fluttery sleeves. Sleeves that can be rolled up if desired are best. Aprons will be provided for use during class. 

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: Classes may be cancelled 7 days prior to the date of class. Within 7 days of your class, we no longer can offer refunds for cancellations, but can happily transfer your registration to a friend or family member designated by you to attend in your place.

Q: Can I bring my teen to a class?

A: Nearly all of our adult classes would be appropriate for kids aged 12 and up (with obvious exceptions like wine tasting classes).

Q: Does Cookshop have a parking lot?

A: Unfortunately, we do not have a parking lot. However, there is plentiful street parking at and around the Clinton/26th Avenue intersection. Please be respectful of our neighbors by not parking in front of driveways. There are also two bus lines that have stops within a block or two of the shop. Look for schedules and route for bus #4 and #9. 

Q: My child has dietary restrictions and/or food allergies, can they attend your cooking classes?

A: Yes! We are can easily make any classes nut free, and will do our best to accommodate other food intolerances and allergies. Please send us an email prior to registering your child (or yourself) if you are unsure if a particular class will be a good fit. Please use subject: allergies and send to: info@portlandcookshop.com

Q: I'd love to see the kitchen before I sign up for a class, can I just pop in and check it out?

A: Yes, and no. For the safety of our young students, we only allow designated parent's and caregivers in the studio before, during, and after kid's classes.  If you would like to visit the kitchen studio, please attend one of our free Cookshop Community Events, or feel free to stop in 30 minutes prior to any adult class. Or, just send an email to meredith@portlandcookshop.com and we can arrange a time for you to visit!
