When you reserve one of our kitchens for an event (adult parties, team building, bachelorette parties, custom workshops), we require a 50% deposit at the time the reservation is made. The remaining payment is due when we call for the final guest count. If you cancel at least 30 days prior to the event, your full deposit will be refunded. If you cancel within 30 days of the event, all monies paid will be forfeited unless the kitchen is booked for another event.
Kid’s birthday parties
When you reserve a kitchen for a birthday party we require a 50% deposit. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable (meaning rescheduling the event) within 30 days of the party date. We will refund or reschedule only if we can rebook the kitchen.
Kid’s Class Series:
If you join an already running session we will prorate you for any missed classes.
Session cost varies depending on the number of classes that meet for each session. Session classes do not meet during school vacation weeks or on days when Newton is closed for a holiday.
MAKE UP CLASSES FOR SERIES:
We will give you a credit on your Create a Cook account (not a refund) for 1 class missed per session as long as we were notified in advance of the absence.

Cooking classes are like theater tickets: the show must go on, so we encourage you to send a substitute if you are unable to attend. When you reserve a spot for a cooking class, full payment is required at the time the reservation is made. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover cards.
If you cancel at least 14 days prior to the start of classes: Your payment will be refunded in full.
If you cancel within 8 – 14 days of your scheduled class: We will issue you a credit towards a future class. No refunds will be issued.
If you cancel less than 7 days before the class: No refunds, transfers, gift cards or credits will be issued for cancellation within seven calendar days of the class date. While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit, transfers or refunds for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts, personal emergencies or events beyond our control. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.
If we cancel a class due to low enrollment, all payments and deposits will be refunded in full.
If Create a Cook must cancel a class: If Create a Cook cancels a class due to low enrollment or other unforseen circumstances you will have the choice of receiving a refund or a credit for that particular day towards other offerings.

If we do choose to notify everyone via phone and we are not able to speak with you in person, we will leave a message. We will assume that you listen to your phone messages on a regular basis.
Weather related cancellation: We will make a determination no later than 2 hours prior to a class and in the event of a cancellation of a class due to inclement weather, we will make every attempt to notify you by phone or email using the information you provided to us upon registration. We encourage you to check your email. If we do choose to notify everyone via phone and we are not able to speak with you in person, we will leave a message.
