HEALTH & SAFETY / FOOD SAFETY / SANITATION
Chef Joel takes health & safety, food safety and sanitation very seriously. Chef Joel discusses food safety in every camp and class and carefully monitors sanitation/classroom hygiene constantly to ensure not only that all food produced in class is safe to eat, but also that risks of any infection spread are minimized. Camp/class participants must comply with all current disease prevention requirements while in class, including Covid-19 and other disease prevention protocols. We have always taken food safety very seriously and will continue to monitor classes even more closely.
We offer cooking classes for all levels of expertise, ability and interest!
