Terms & Conditions

By purchasing, registering for and/or enrolling in a class you agree to our policies as follows:
Cooking Classes - Standard Class and Cancellation Policy:

Cooking Classes Registration
All classes are confirmed upon completion of registration. For online registrations, a confirmation is automatically sent to the "Bill To" email address as provided in the order. We cannot be responsible for undelivered or bounced back online confirmations due to spam filters or firewalls.  No email confirmations or reminder phone calls are provided for in-store or by-phone registrations.  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class start as students are required to check in and classes start on time.

Class Changes and Cancellations Single Classes:  Should you need to change or cancel a reservation for a class, you will receive a refund for any cancellation made seven (7) days or more before the class date. Cancellations made six (6) days or fewer before the class date will incur a 30% “cost of goods” fee (based on the total fee paid) with the remainder put on a Cooking Class voucher that can be applied toward a future class.  For coupon reservations, the coupon will be redeemed on the day of the class and future use will incur a 30% "costs of goods" fee (based on total paid for coupon) at time of use.  No refunds, exchanges or vouchers will be given for cancellations or changes made on the day of the class or for no shows -- without exception.  Due to the extremely high cost of credit card fees, online bookings made for three (3) or more people or classes that are cancelled by the customer will incur a 6% fee to cover credit card fees that we incur (3% on booking plus 3% on cancellation).  Reservations are fully transferable and if you are unable to attend a class you may send someone in your place without notice.  Changes and cancellations may be made in person or by calling our store at 562-430-1217 and speaking directly to one of our store employees.  Due to timing issues we absolutely cannot accept or honor cancellations sent by email or left via phone message or on voicemail. In the event we cancel a class a full refund will be given.  

Class Changes and Cancellations for Series Classes:  No refunds or make-up dates can be given for missed Series classes.

Substitutions and Class Format:  We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menu items, recipes and instructors.  Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style.  Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes.  Students are generally split into teams and each team makes several recipes.  All students receive a portion of every recipe made in class.  The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as "Demonstration" or "Demo" or "Lecture".

Class Rewards: All cooking class students receive a 10 % off any purchases made on the day of the class excluding sale items, consumables, Mrs. Meyers products and appliances.

Wear or Bring to Class:  Aprons are suggested but not mandatory.  Please know we do not provide aprons for classes but we do sell them at the store. Closed toe shoes are suggested and we ask that long hair is tied back for all classes.

Wine:  PREP offers a good selection of great California Boutique Wines available for purchase that are personally selected by PREP Chefs and the PREP Owner.  Prices start at $6.00 per glass and generally range from $9.99 to $28.99 per bottle.  Should customers wish to bring their own wine, a $13 corkage fee applies.
