A NOTE ABOUT VACCINATION STATUS: Everyone who registers for our classes must be fully-vaccinated by the date of class. This is meant to create a safe and relaxed, communal cooking environment for everyone.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

  • The Baking Basics
  • Holiday Candy Workshop
  • Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

  • All classes are non-refundable.
  • We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to refill your seat with another student.
  • While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.
  • If you test positive or have been exposed to Covid, and it is less than 48 hours before your class, we will certainly work with you to find a future class for you to attend.
  • If you need to reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, please reach out directly to Home Cooking New York: [email protected].

For Culinary Bootcamps:

Boot camp registrations are not refundable, but are transferable to another boot camp if you give us more than 1 weeks’ notice if you need to change your start date.

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time:

  1. Send a vaxxed friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  2. Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

Thank you for understanding!

Such a great class! John was awesome. So fun, delicious, informative, and personable!

Reviewed by Sherri D. on 11/24/2019
It's great that John (our personal chef for the evening) made sure that we could re-create at home what we learned in class. He gave us shortcuts and handy tips and even explained the science behind why we should heat up our pans before we add the oil or why we put butter in AFTER the oil. This was my first time, but I will most certainly sign up for another class.
