Classes involve using various kitchen utensils and cooking equipment, including knives, sharp utensils, and working with and in close proximity to small kitchen appliances and hot surfaces. Classes may also involve the handling of raw food items, including raw proteins such as beef, poultry, pork, seafood, and shellfish. Like all cooking activities, certain inherent risks are present, not all of which can be described herein, but may include, without limitation, cuts, scrapes, scratches, puncture wounds, thermal burns, scalds, injuries from using cooking equipment and instruments, eye injuries or irritation, skin irritations, allergic reactions, food poisoning, slips, falls, and choking.

You knowingly and voluntarily release, acquit and forever discharge This Honest Food LLC and its parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, together with officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, attorneys, customers, clients, insurers, successors, divisions and independent retailers and their respective employees and agents from and against any and all claims, actions, damages and liabilities of any kind, including reasonable attorney fees which may have at any time hereafter in any arising out of, relating to and/or allegedly caused by participation in the cooking class. The venue for any dispute shall be in Lake County, FL in accordance with Florida law.


Payment, Cancellations, and Refunds:
Payment is processed at the time of registration. Cancellations may be made up to 48 hours in advance of the class start time to receive a full refund or transfer to another class of equal value. Cancellations must be made by phone by calling 321-474-6346. We do not offer refunds, credit, or transfers for last-minute illnesses, personal, or work-related conflicts. Cancellations made in less than 48 hours will not be refunded or transferred.

What to bring:
Bring your ticket/receipt you received via email, and yourself. We provide the apron, recipes, tools, and ingredients. If you have forgotten your ticket, you may check in using a valid photo ID.

For demo-style classes, any comfortable attire is perfect; you’ll be sitting, observing, and tasting, but not standing for long periods of time.

For hands-on classes, you’ll be standing while prepping and cooking, so please wear comfortable clothing (we recommend jeans and a t-shirt), and non-slip, closed-toe shoes that will protect your feet (like sneakers, boots, or boat shoes). Sandals and flip flops are not permitted for safety reasons. Long hair (men and women) must be pulled back and/or pinned up during prep and cooking time, and with the exception of a plain band-style ring (like a wedding band without stones or inlays), jewelry must be removed before prep and cooking begins, so we recommend valuables be left at home.

Personal Items:
Personal belongings, such as a purse, water bottle, sweater, or jacket may be kept in a designated area in the teaching kitchen.

Alcoholic Beverages:
We are unable to serve or allow bring-your-own wine or beer in our establishment without a liquor license. On occasion however, we partner with professional consultants who are licensed to serve alcohol as part of our cooking classes, and will be noted in class descriptions.

Food Allergies:
If you have food allergies or special dietary needs, please indicate online when ordering tickets, and we will do our best to make reasonable accommodations. We are peanut- and soy-free, however we often cook with gluten-containing flours, fish, shellfish, dairy, eggs, and tree nuts. Once these packages are open, their dust and particles are in the air, so if cross contact is an issue, or your reactions are severe enough to cause anaphylaxis or other life-threatening allergic reactions, we recommend you do not enroll in a cooking class as we’re not able to guarantee a 100% allergy-free environment. It is your responsibility to prevent allergic reactions. In the event you enroll with a known food allergy, you assume all responsibility should you experience a reaction.

Service Animal Policy:
Service animals are not permitted in the teaching kitchen, as this area is considered a non-communal food prep area. If you require the assistance of a state-recognized service animal, and would like to sign up for a cooking class, please make arrangements to attend without the service animal present; service animals may not be held in the retail area during class. Please be advised emotional support animals are not permitted in the retail or teaching kitchen areas.

Reasonable Accommodations:
Hands-on classes require students to be standing for long periods of time. Stools will be provided for those needing to sit. Additional reasonable accommodations will be considered on an individual basis. If you require special assistance or accommodation in order to participate in a cooking class, please call to discuss before registering to ensure we are able to meet your needs.

Smoking Policy:
We’re all about good health, so we appreciate and thank you for not smoking near our front door or extinguishing on our walkway.

When taking a cooking class, we don’t want you to miss a thing, and recommend breaks be taken before or after class. If you absolutely must step away during class, we appreciate you going to your car or stepping away from the building to prevent smoke from entering through the front door, and then washing your hands before returning to the teaching kitchen, as the smell of smoke can negatively affect the healthy cooking experience of those around you.
