We are offering virtual birthday parties, couples nights, school fund raisers and much more!
Of course you are welcome to come by any time we are open to see the space and we can show you around. But if you are curious, you can have a little peek inside our space courtesy of Google. It shows one of our kitchens (we have two) and the front dining area. You can see it here.
KID'S BIRTHDAY PARTIES: When you reserve a kitchen for a birthday party we require a full deposit. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable (meaning rescheduling the event) within 45 days of the party date.
MAXIMUM ATTENDANCE: Under COVID-19 state guidelines, please keep in mind that the MAXIMUM attendance for birthday parties is 8 guests including the birthday child.
PRIVATE EVENTS: 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, we will charge a $50.00 cancellation fee and refund the balance to you. If you cancel within 30 days of the event, all money paid will be forfeited unless the kitchen is booked for another event.
WORKSHOPS/SERIES/OTHER CLASSES: If you cancel at least 45 days prior to the start of class/workshop Your payment will be refunded in full. If you cancel before 30 days of your scheduled class: We will issue you a credit towards a future class. No refunds will be issued within 30 days of the scheduled class. We cannot provide refunds, transfers, or makeup sessions for classes missed because of illness, job loss, personal emergencies or events beyond our control. If we cancel a class due to low enrollment, all payments and deposits will be refunded in full.
KIDS 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.

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Create a Cook has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, we cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. The participant hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Create a Cook, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. The participant understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Create a Cook, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Create a Cook program.
The participant understand there are numerous inherent risks associated with participating in any cooking activities, including but not limited to using sharp knives, operating hot stove, boiling water, hot oil, oven, and operating kitchen equipment. The undersigned participant acknowledges and assume the risks involved in these cooking activities and for any damage, illness and injuries resulting from such risks. The participant hereby waives, releases, remises, covenants not to sue and forever discharges Create A Cook and any of their managers and employees, of any and all liability, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, or damages of any kind.
The participant accepts full financial responsibility for any injury to him/herself or to any other participant, whether due to his/her own negligence or not, and agrees to hold harmless and indemnify Create A Cook.
Create A Cook is not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged personal belongings.
Yes. You have to sign a waiver form specific to the event attending.
Yes, we have plenty of parking.
We recommend that students wear closed-toe shoes to class and to dress appropriately for a cooking environment. Open-toed shoes, and flip flops are not allowed to be worn during class. We will provide an apron during the cooking class.
Create a Cook is not a nut free facility. Any nuts that are on site are stored in enclosed containers. All pans, pots, bowls, etc are run through our ware washing machine which reaches sanitizing temperatures during the cycle. In the classes most recipes we select allow the option of including or excluding nuts and we set up for each child accordingly. For the birthday parties NONE of the recipes include nuts.
We also try to accommodate children with other allergies like milk allergies, sesame, soy, etc. As long as you let the Create a Cook staff know when you register your child that there are food allergies or dietary restrictions like no pork or no shellfish we will try to find a substitution for the student unless the recipe restricts it. For summer classes vegetarian is an option only if there is a second student who has the same restriction. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you indicate these issues when you register in the Comments/More Information field during the last step of the registration process, if we did not know at registration we might not be able to accommodate the allergy or restriction if we are informed on the day of the class.
Email us us or call at 617-795-2223 to discuss any of these issues further.
