By registering for or enrolling in a class you agree to our policies as follows:

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 full refund for any cancellation made seven (7) days or more before the class date. Cancellations and changes made six (6) days or fewer before the class date will incur a 30% “cost of goods” fee (based on the total fee paid) to cover food and staffing reserved.  No refunds, credits, 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 and firewall 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 Series Classes:  In addition to the cancellation terms above, no refunds or make-up dates can be given for missed classes in a Series.

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. After recipes are prepared, work tables are cleared and reset for dining and all students receive an eating 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, wines, Mrs. Meyers products and appliances.


Wear or Bring to Class: Aprons are suggested but not mandatory, we do not supply aprons 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 $12.99 to $28.99 per bottle.  Should customers wish to bring their own wine, a $13 corkage fee applies.
