Terms and conditions



These terms and conditions apply to services supplied to you by Frankfurt for Cooks (“us”, “we”, “our”).

You should read, and ensure persons that you book into a cooking class are aware of and read, these Terms & Conditions carefully before requesting our goods and services (e.g. booking a cooking class, or buying a voucher) as they set out your rights and the conditions on which we make those goods and services available to you. 

By requesting or using our goods and services, or otherwise indicating your consent, you agree to be bound by these Terms & Conditions.

You should also read, and ensure persons that you book into a cooking class are aware of and read, our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy (to find out what kind of information we collect about you, how we use and safeguard such information and your rights and choices in relation to this). We reserve the right to cancel offers or promotions at any time and they are always subject to availability. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us as described below under the ‘Contact’ heading.

By booking a cookery class with Frankfurt for Cooks you agree that:

You have permission to act on another person’s behalf when you provide their personal information to us, and register them for a cooking class, and that you and any other persons registered for the cooking class have read and understood our Privacy Policy.

You will arrive in time to start time of your class, whether this be arriving in person for an in-person cooking class or connecting online for an online cooking class. This is due to the importance of  starting and continuing the class on time for all participants, and conducting a detailed health and safety briefing at the beginning of the class. 

No refunds will be given for late arrivals as per our cancellation and rescheduling policy below.

You will wear practical clothing, including flat shoes that cover your toes, a minimal amount of jewellery and hair tied back where necessary.

You will not attend any in-person classes if you have been unwell within the 48 hours before your class. This is to protect all of our customers and staff as illnesses can be spread through food. Please note that our cancellation and rescheduling policy (below) will still apply if you are unwell as per those terms and conditions below, therefore, we suggest that you send someone in your place.

You may be refused admission or asked to leave a class if we suspect that you are under the influence of alcohol or an illicit substance, are unwell or are engaging in inappropriate behaviour. No refunds or rescheduling will be offered in those circumstances.

You will follow all hygiene and safety procedures that we inform you about. You acknowledge, however, that whilst we will suggest health and safety measures, it is impossible for us to safeguard your health and safety at all times especially in an online class and you are ultimately responsible for your own health and safety.

You alone are responsible to ensure ingredients you purchase before an online cooking class are suitable for your own health needs, and safely transported, stored and (if applicable) prepared.

Following your class, you will follow all our instructions for the preparation, transportation, storage, reheating, cooking and consumption of meals.

If you want further information about how we use your personal data, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

You will indemnify and hold us and our employees harmless from all claims, damages, liabilities and causes of action which may arise as a result of:

  • your preparation, storage, re-heating and consumption of food after your class;
  • any loss of personal property whilst on our premises;
  • any injuries or damages you sustain or, or that your guest or anyone affiliated with or connected with you, may sustain in connection with or resulting directly or indirectly from your or your guest’s, or affiliated or connected person’s, involvement in our cooking classes.

Our liability to you shall not exceed the total price charged for any classes you have paid for.

Nothing in these terms and conditions excludes our liability to you for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or any other losses which cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law (such as relating to the protection of your personal information).

Only paying guests will be permitted to be in the cookery school premises whilst classes are in progress or are permitted to view and/or hear online cooking classes.

Any participant in a cooking class is welcome to send another person in their place as long as you inform us by calling or emailing us (as described below under the ‘Contact’ heading) at least 24 hours prior to the class of that person’s name, allergies, dietary requirements and any other special requirements (for example, access needs), and that person has read and consented to these Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy.

If you book an in-person cooking class we will provide recipes, aprons and necessary equipment. 

If you book an online cooking class, we will send an ingredients list, equipment list and preparation guidelines and recipes to the email address you provide at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to pay for and ensure you have the ingredients and equipment required to participate in the online cooking class. We are not liable to provide any refunds, exchanges, reschedule an online class, pay for the cost of ingredients or equipment, or liable in any other way to you if you are unable to fulfil those requirements.

If you book an online cooking class, it is your responsibility to ensure you have the technical capability (such as software and internet speed) to attend that class. We are not liable to provide any refunds, exchanges, reschedule an online class, provide technical support, or liable in any other way to you if you are unable to attend or participate fully in an online cooking class due to any technical issues.

Bookings and cancellations for individuals

Payment in full is required at the time of booking. Payment will be made by Paypal.

In-Person classes/ tours: If you need to cancel or reschedule a booking you must do this by contacting us (at the email address below under the ‘Contact’ heading). We will refund:

100% of the booking fee if the class is cancelled or rescheduled more than 72 hours prior to the class

50% of the booking fee if the class is cancelled or rescheduled more between 48 and 72 hours prior to the class

We are sorry that we will be unable to refund or reschedule an in-person cooking class with less than 48 hours notice.

Online classes: If you need to cancel or reschedule a booking you must do this by contacting us (at the email address below under the ‘Contact’ heading) at least 24 hours before the date of your class and you will be given a full refund for the cooking class. We are sorry that we will be unable to refund or reschedule an online cooking class with less than 24 hours notice. 

Food Allergy Policy

Ingredients may contain or have been manufactured/prepared on shared equipment with wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts, fish, soya and shellfish and other allergens.

You must inform us of any dietary requirements and allergies that you and any other participants have at the time of booking and confirm those when you arrive for your cooking class. Where a person attends in replacement of another person, you must notify us in advance. We will advise about the suitability of the class for you based on your dietary requirements and allergies.

Whether you attend an in-person class or online class, you are ultimately also responsible for avoiding allergens and ensuring your guests avoid allergens.

You alone are responsible, and we accept no responsibility, for ensuring that allergy and dietary requirements are looked after for anyone who consumes any food you take home from a cookery class.

Terms and conditions for vouchers for cooking classes

Vouchers for cooking classes can be requested by email (address below under the ‘Contact’ heading).

Any purchased gift vouchers will expire 12 months from the date of purchase. Please keep your receipt as proof of purchase in case of any queries. We cannot accept responsibility for lost or stolen vouchers.

The gift voucher may not be exchanged for cash.
