Frequent Asked Questions

How do the classes work?

Each class is completely hands-on, interactive and a lot of fun. We are bringing in the tables and all the kitchen supplies you’ll need. You’ll be stationed at table for 4 and will work with your table to produce the meal. We also have one table for reserved for two (book quickly: this sells out fast!). If you come with more than 4 in your group, you may have to split up.

How many people are in each class?

22 people total. 5 tables with 4 people at each table. 1 Table for 2. We can hold larger groups for private events or team building classes.

What if I’ve never cooked before?

You can sign up for our Beginner Class! We’ll go over the basics of basics.

What happens if I come with a friend who is not as good of a cook as I am?

This gets tricky. Our recommendation would be to find a class level that both partners are comparable. We have 5 different levels. However, since you’ll be working with your table of 4, each person won’t be completing every part of the meal. The class environment is not intimidating. Please be sure to stay within the cooking level that you are comfortable with.

Do I get to eat what I’ve made?

Of course! We also have eco-friendly to-go boxes for anything to save for later.

Can I take home a copy of the recipe?

Right again! We’ll have nifty recipe books that you’ll be able to write notes in and take home.

Can I bring my own beer or wine to the class?

Yes you can!

Can I bring my son or daughter?

Only if they are above 21 years old. We do offer week-long Kids Culinary Camps in the Summer and host hands-on kids cooking classes throughout the year. Later in 2017 we will be adding Parent/Child cooking class as well. E-mail us, info@chefalyssaskitchen.com, to find out more.
