What is the difference between a “cooking class” and a “cooking party?”
Cooking Classes would be a much more detailed lesson and you would learn by doing. A Cooking Party is still a lesson, but we keep it very simple and I do a cooking demonstration while you and your guests observe and ask questions.
Who hosts the party?
The person who hires me is typically the host. However, I recommend that the person in your group who has the biggest kitchen, preferably with an island, host the group.
How much does it cost to have a cooking party
A cooking party for 4-6 people will cost $50 per person. Cooking parties for 7-12 people cost $35 per person.
How many people can I invite to a cooking party?
I require a minimum of 4 people to do a cooking party. I recommend that you have no more than 12 people so everyone can see what I’m doing and hear what I’m saying.
How long is a cooking party?
The demonstration is two hours. Everyone will get to sample the food and take a recipe.
Do you give private lessons?
Yes. If you would like private lessons we can discuss an hourly rate once we determine what your goals are.
What if I make the dish(es) at home and I have a question?
Please feel free to call me! I’ll help you out in any way possible.
What if my friends have different skill levels?
You will all get more out of “Cook with Pamela” if your comfort level in the kitchen is on a similar par, but in most cases, we can work around that.
Do you provide wine for cooking parties?
I do not, but you are welcome to bring it if you’d like.
What’s your cancellation policy?
If you cancel more than 2 weeks before the class: you get a full refund or you can choose another date.
If you cancel less than 2 weeks in advance, but 4 days prior to the class, you get a 50% refund.
If you cancel 4 days prior or less, I cannot offer a refund.
