CAN I PURCHASE A GIFT CARD FOR A COOKING CLASS?

Our online classes start at just $35 per household, so you can have friends and family in your kitchen at no additional cost.

Online classes are 1 ½ to 2 hours in length unless otherwise noted.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF ONLINE CLASSES?
Online classes are given real-time via Zoom (classes are shown in Eastern Time). We'll send you a prep packet with an ingredient list beforehand, so you have time to assemble all the necessary tools and ingredients. Before class begins, you’ll need to have Zoom installed on your tablet or laptop. Set up your laptop or tablet in the kitchen for easy viewing while you cook. Every class is live, so you can ask your instructor questions as you go. At the end of the class, you’ll have a delicious meal to enjoy.

We will also provide you with recipes and "at home" instructions for all the menu items.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP YOUR COOKING CLASSES SAFE?
Relish takes keeping our customers and store team healthy very seriously. Here are some of the extra steps we are taking to create a safe class experience:
- We are closely following provincial and local public health orders and guidelines.
- To comply with local ordinances, proof of vaccination will be required for cooking class participation. We will adjust as provincial numbers are at a level we deem to be safe for students and instructors to work together.
- Class attendees will work together i groups of up to three at shared workstations. If you attend a class with a guest, you are welcome to share with that person.
- We have increased the frequency of cleaning with disinfectants throughout our store and kitchen, particularly high-touch surfaces.
- Vaccinated attendees are required to wear a mask while participating in the class.
- Instructors and staff will wear face coverings throughout your class.
- We have strict safety and health protocols in place for our employees.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY CLASS?
We understand that sometimes class cancellations are necessary, and this policy describes what happens in the event of a cancellation.
For cancellations made up to 48 hours before the schedule start time of a class, we will offer you a store credit to be used towards another class at your convenience. Cancellations made after that time we are not able to offer any in-store credit.
(Cancellations or changes can be made (1) in person in Relish Cooking Studio through our telephone number during normal business hours, by calling (519) 954-8772 and speaking directly to a Relish staff member. We cannot accept or honour cancellations made by email or left on voicemail. When we cancel a class due to inclement weather, or other circumstances beyond our control (e.g., power outages, facility issues, etc.), we will endeavour to contact you by email or telephone with as much notice as possible and issue a full refund to the original form of payment (or, if you prefer, issue you a refund in the form of a Relish store credit). However, if we do not affirmatively cancel a class by email or telephone and you are unable to attend, our standard cancellation policy applies. Please note that Relish reserves the right to modify class menus at any time due to ingredient availability or seasonality.)
