Right to refuse entry or allow to continue a class:
As participants will be handling sharp knives and cutting equipment and the classes are to be held in a hygienic and safe environment the management reserve the right to refuse entry to any person to commence a class or at any time during a class to refuse to allow a person to continue the class for any reason whatsoever deemed to be sufficient to do so. Should it be necessary to invoke this right at the sole discretion of the management we reserve the right to make a partial refund of the class fee or no refund at all dependant on the circumstances.

Skill Levels:
We try to establish at time of booking the suitability of any course for an applicant. If you are unsure of the skill requirements for a course, please contact us so we can help ascertain your level of experience before booking. We rely on students being able to self assess their own skill level and are happy to assist with this but cannot be held liable if you book a course higher or lower than your actual skill level. Should an applicant be found to be unsuitable to handle sharp or dangerous kitchen equipment for their own or others safety then we reserve the right to preclude that person from undertaking certain activities within the class without any refund or partial refund.

All course participants will receive a short briefing on health and safety and good kitchen hygiene before commencing any class as well as a printed handout to take away.

Special dietary requirements, food allergies & illness:
We are unable to tailor our class content for special dietary requirements unless you have made a dedicated complete class booking of six people. We will be happy to discuss course content beforehand to allow you to make your own alternative eating arrangements if necessary. There is no reduction in fee in this instance.Please inform us in advance of any allergies, disabilities or illnesses which we should be made aware of.
