WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT A FIVE LOAVES & TWO FISH HEALTHY TEACHING KITCHEN COOKING CLASS?

Get ready to roll up your sleeves for a hands-on experience. Our small class sizes ensure that you get plenty of personal attention from your chef instructor, who will walk you through each step of the recipe and demonstrate specific techniques.

Our in-person cooking classes take place at select locations. Our kitchens are designed specifically to be a learning environment. You’ll have a workstation equipped with the tools and ingredients you’ll need for each recipe, and you’ll taste a generous helping of everything you make.

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?

Five Loaves & Two Fish Healthy Teaching Kitchen takes keeping our clients' and teams' health very seriously. Here are some of the extra steps we are taking to create a safe class experience:

We are closely following CDC and local public health orders and guidelines.

Class attendees will work together in groups of two 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 stores and kitchens, particularly high-touch surfaces.

Vaccinated attendees aged 12 and older may go mask-free if they choose, unless required by local ordinance. All other attendees under 11 years old are required to wear a mask.

Instructors and staff will wear face coverings and gloves throughout your class.

We have strict safety and health protocols in place for our employees.

We are using more disposable dishes and utensils to minimize the need for re-use.

For cancellations, Five Loaves & Two Fish Healthy Teaching Kitchen will  offer an in-class/virtual credit that may be used for a future class. 

(Cancellations or changes can be made (1) in person in at the location of the culinary class or (2) via email at [email protected] When we cancel a class due to inclement weather, or other circumstances beyond our control (e.g., power outages, facility issues, etc.), we will endeavor 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 Five Loaves & Two Fish Healthy Teaching Kitchen gift card).
