We also recognize that you may occasionally need to cancel your registration. You will receive a full refund for a Monday Class if you cancel your class by noon on Wednesday prior to the day of the class and a full refund for a Saturday Class if you cancel your class by noon on Monday prior to the day of class. It must be at least five days prior to the class. The chefs and cooks need to order their food and supplies several days ahead. If you fail to show up for a class, no refund will be made. You may allow someone to come in your place if you notify us by noon on the day of the class.
