Cooking School Registration & Policies

At The Chubby Cook, we believe in providing a full meal to each of our class participants.  We also provide a printout of all recipes for you to take with you.

Menus may have to be altered due to the seasonal availability of ingredients. The Chubby Cook reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a class due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, or to change the instructor due to unforeseen circumstances. Demonstration classes are about an hour and a half long, hands-on classes will run about an hour or more longer. Some menus feature first courses that require more lengthy preparation, and may not be served until an hour or more after class begins. Portions are ample and – unless otherwise indicated – you will not need to eat a meal after your cooking class. Class seating is on a first come, first served, basis. Please note the starting time of your class, since starting times vary and classes begin promptly.  If you will be late to class, please call us at 216.342.4840 so you place is not cleared!

PLEASE NOTE: For all hands-on classes, please wear long pants, closed toed shoes without heels.  Please dress comfortably- we are in a professional, working kitchen!  Aprons will be provided for you.

Payment and Cancellation Policy
You may register for classes online or by phone. Payment in full is required to complete the registration, payable by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express.*** (Please do not send cash in the mail.) Space is limited. If a class is full, you may place your name on the waiting list.

Due to to the popularity of classes, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. If a class fills up early, additional sessions may be added. Registration must be completed online to be confirmed.

In the event you must cancel your class reservation please give us at least seven (7) days notice prior to the date of the class to receive a credit or refund. If you register 3 or more people for a class, a 2 week cancellation notice is required. For celebrity chefs and out of state chefs, the cancellation is a one (1) month cancellation due to travel arrangements.

Classes may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. Upon cancellation, we will contact you by phone or email; you will have the choice of either transferring your payment to another class or receiving a refund.

Bad Weather: We live in Cleveland and all know that bad weather happens.  We will make a determination to cancel class no later than 2 hours prior to a class and will make every attempt to notify you by phone at the phone number you provided us upon registration.  If we are not able to speak with you in person, we will leave a message.  We encourage you to call us or email us if in doubt. Unless you hear from us at the phone number provided to us at registration, the class will be held. It is important to provide us with accurate contact phone numbers and email addresses when you register.We are concerned for everyone’s safety and will only decide to hold a class if we determine that the roads are safe. As long as the instructor and class assistants can make it to the school the class will be held.  There are no refunds, credits, transfers or exchanges because of bad weather providing the school is open with class running. Plan to leave home early, and please travel carefully. Any classes that are canceled will be rescheduled or you will be given a full refund.
