Please NOTE:  These SUMMER Classes are ALL GROUP Classes. Students must register in groups of 2, 3 or 4 (tuition is per student). It is recommended that students only register with someone they currently live with. We unfortunately cannot accommodate individual students at this time. Please note, couples/pairs or groups will work together in close proximity at a cooking station. By registering for this class, the students acknowledge that they will be in close contact with the student they register with. Students will not sit down to eat a meal together, but they will enjoy their creations at the cooking station with their own group, while remaining socially distanced from other participants, as per CDC guidelines.
