About Our Private Cooking Classes
Our private cooking classes are approximately three hours in length, and all Chefs
are welcome; from beginner to expert.
Classes demonstrate cooking techniques with limited hands-on participation.
The chef will teach you about cooking from shopping for quality ingredients to
presentation of your dishes, and make seemingly complicated recipes easy and fun
Each student receives a recipe booklet to follow along with the preparation of each
dish, and questions to the chef are encouraged during the demonstration.
At the end of the class, students will enjoy a sampling of each dish prepared, and
swap ideas and experiences with other class participants.
Alcoholic beverages may be served with dishes only to adults over the age of 21.
No alcoholic beverages may be brought onto the property by students or class
There is no cellular telephone reception at Rancho Chiquita, and we ask that you
silence all cellular telephones and beepers while classes are in session.
Babies and small children are not allowed in adult classes.
If you cannot attend a class, you may notify Rancho Chiquita and send someone to
take your place, or you may receive class credit with at least 48 hours advance
notice of cancellation.
Parties of 6 or more must give notice of cancellation at least 5 business days prior to
the scheduled class.
