Please contact me before you register, I am happy to review ingredients with you to determine whether this camp is appropriate.
Can parents stay for class?
I kindly ask that only registered children be inside the kitchen, and no arrivals earlier than 5 minutes before and at the end of class time so I can give the students my full attention. There is a small customer pick up area attached to the kitchen where adults can wait for class to end if needed.
