At the end of each session you will receive the recipes of the meal you prepared. Daily Schedule of Lessons: Morning: from 10am to 12pm | Afternoon: from 4pm to 6pm Maximum six participants. Minimum age: 12; 18 if not with an adult.  To learn more about the daily schedule of lessons and our Private Lessons, please do not hesitate to contact our Guest Relations Department.
