Q: What do I need to bring to my class?
A: Please wear comfortable, closed toe shoes and long pants. If you have a favourite knife, feel free to bring it with you- otherwise everything will be provided. A Tupperware container can be brought to ensure you can enjoy any potential leftovers later!
Q: What if I have allergies or dietary restrictions?
A: The essence of our classes is to provide a shared experience, as such it is difficult to guarantee that the menu will fit with each individuals needs. Please review the menu to see if the items suit your needs. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us. If one class doesn’t work for you, we likely have another menu that will -we also love suggestions, feel free to send us your ideas for menus and cuisines.
Q: What if I cannot make it to my class?
A: Similar to a concert ticket class bookings are non-refundable an non-transferrable but if you cannot make it feel free to send a friend in your place!
Q: What is a Chef's Table?
A: A seated dinner hosted by local chefs and food industry experts. You will be treated to an elevated eating experience in an intimate family-style setting at The Local Kitchen. These evenings are for chefs to express themselves through a thoroughly planned menu and because of this they will not be able to tailor the meal for dietary restrictions. These events are not hands-on instructional but you will be educated on ingredients and flavours through eating and description.
Q: Can I book a private cooking class or event?
A: Absolutely, we love private groups. Please take a look through our event options and prices listed under "Cooking Classes" at the top of our site. If you would like to proceed with a package or a la carte booking please get in touch via email or phone. We take a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold the date and the remainder is due one week in advance of your event.
Q. There is table service provided during the classes and most events. Does this mean I need to leave a tip?
A. No, this service is included in the price of the ticket. However, if you feel your chef went the extra mile to answer questions and make your experience above average, please feel free to tip them whatever you feel is justified.
