Healthy Community Cooking

Healthy Community Cooking Program

We teach basic cooking skills and food education that will empower members to make better food choices, and improve overall health & well-being by making meals at home. Members gain kitchen confidence, obtain knowledge to create affordable meals from scratch, and have a local, reliable resource for health education and purchasing health-friendly products.

So How Does It Work?

HCCP is currently undergoing a Makeover!

We are busy revising and improving the program! Stay tuned!

Cancellation Policy

Full payment for classes is required at time of reservation.  We understand that life happens, and emergencies do occur.  However, we also have a commitment to all our students, and there is a great deal of preparation and scheduling that goes into creating and executing each class.  Therefore, all cooking classes are NON-REFUNDABLE, much like a sporting event or theater ticket, but can be rescheduled if cancellation is made 72 hours or more prior to class. If you are unable to attend a class, we encourage you to send someone in your place.  In this case, please notify us of the participant change.

Cancellation notice given 72 hours or more in advance of your scheduled class, will receive a credit (valid for 6 months from the date of the original class) toward a future class registration.  If class was being paid via Gift Certificate or previous credit certificate, the amount will be returned to the certificate (with original expiration date still in effect.)  NO CREDIT will be issued for cancellations within 72 hours of a class.  In this case, you may contact us to see if we have a waiting list.  If there is a waiting list for that class, we will TRY to find a replacement for you.  We do NOT GUARANTEE that we will be able to fill the spot.  If we do fill the spot, you will receive a credit (valid for 6 months from date of class) towards future class registrations.

If for any reason, including insufficient enrollment, Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience needs to cancel or reschedule a class, you will be notified (via email or phone) a minimum of 24 hours prior to the class and given the option of a credit for another class or a full refund.  If a class is cancelled due to inclement weather, we will notify you as soon as that decision is made and you will receive your choice of a credit toward another class or a full refund.  Please note, classes are rarely cancelled due to weather and if the class is held, there will be no refunds due to the weather.

Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience reserves the right to cancel or modify classes and menus.

Media Release

Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience reserves the right to use and reproduce any and all photographs or videotapes taken during your participation in any activity related to Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience for the purposes of promotion, advertising and public relations.  By registering for class, you consent to being photographed or videotaped. If you do not wish to be photographed or videotaped, please notify Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary experience.

Waiver and Release of Liability

By registering for a cooking class or event, I fully understand, acknowledge and accept that the class or classes I am registering to take with Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience are for the purpose of learning to cook, which involves preparing, cooking and sampling food. Given the common dangers and use of tools and cooking instruments in a kitchen, I agree to hold harmless Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience, its employees, owners, chefs, food preparers, attorneys and assigns, from any and all liability, loss, claim, demand, action or cause of action which arises or may arise or be occasioned in any way by my participation in any class, including but not limited to, slips, falls, cuts, burns, choking, food allergy reactions and other accidents and injuries that may arise from the activity of cooking and eating the food prepared in classes or events.  I understand that hands-on classes will involve food preparation and handling and that I am ultimately responsible for maintaining the quality of the food I prepare, cook and eat during any class.

Food Allergies and Sensitivites:  Please contact us at least one week in advance if you have food allergies or sensitivities. You are responsible for advising us of the type and severity of your condition.  We will try to accommodate you to the best of our ability, but please understand that we spend weeks preparing the menus and logistics for each class, and it is very difficult to make changes at the last minute.  We only have one kitchen and a variety of food items are used and come in contact with each other.  All cooking items are cleaned in a sanitizing solution between use.
