Cooking Class Reservation Cancellations

We respectfully request that should you need to cancel a reservation for one of our cooking classes, please do so as soon as possible. We almost always have a waiting list and your timely notice of cancellation provides time to contact those on the waiting list, hopefully in time for them to make arrangements to attend the class.

Our in-house and guest chefs usually purchase their food supplies at least the day prior to each scheduled class. Therefore we require that cancellations be made at least 24 hours prior to each class so that the instructor can adjust the food and supplies. Cancellations of less than 24 hours will result in a charge of 50% of the class cost to cover unnecessary supplies and food.

Class size is limited to provide the required separation distance…so our class size will be smaller. Make your reservations early!!

 

CLASS DETAILS ARE LISTED BELOW

All prices are per person!

John has been demonstrating his superior grasp of gourmet food creation since moving to Panama City 2 decades ago and dropping into Hannelore's Something’ Cookin' and taking his first class with her. Since John is of German heritage, Hannelore naturally took him under wing and he has been a star chef since.

Free Wine & Hors d'oeuvres Tastings

Friday, June 7, 5 PM
Friday, June 28, 5 PM

We are scheduling our Wine Tastings to coincide with Father’s Day and 4th of July celebrations with a great wine & hors d'oeuvres tasting.
We try to select 7 to 10 wines for each tasting, shifting our emphasis from whites to red as the cool weather starts to settle in. We specialize in great wines selling between $12 to $25, which we also believe taste better than their selling price. Always a great selection of hors d’oeuvres to cleanse our “pallet."
