About Our Class
Adult demonstration classes are 2+ hours and child hands-on classes are 3 hours. Class recipes are designed for the home cook (beginner through advanced). Menus are not published in advance as we have “mystery menus”. Recipe packets are distributed at each class. All classes are full meals, so come hungry!

Gift Cards
Bristol Farms Gift Cards can be purchased at any of our stores and later redeemed as the registration fee for our cooking classes. This allows the recipient to personally select a class which best fits their availability.

Prior to any class, students must provide a 48 hour notice of cancellation directed to gmjohnston@bristolfarms.com. Failure to provide such notice will result in an mailed invoice for payment of the class fee.
