Important Notes – Kids 9yrs+ with a passion for baking are very welcome, however they must be accompanied by a paying adult as this class has a few ‘hot’ elements to it!  Also, everything is eaten at the end of the class so we recommended having a meal before coming to the class.

Class Terms & Conditions

NO REFUNDS ON BOOKINGS – but we do have a very generous rescheduling package, please check your invoice for details or visit our FAQ page.

Vanilla Zulu is usually booked out for several weeks in advance, late changes have an impact and we can’t always find replacement participants at short notice. Staff rosters and food are prepared in advance of each class. These rules are designed to protect our business, but also to ensure if something does come up, you and your friends don’t miss out on a great experience.

A minimum of 8 guests is required for the class to go ahead, in the event we don’t reach these numbers we will contact you in advance to reschedule your booking.

Please note: The menu is based on available seasonal produce and is subject to change at the experience provider’s discretion. You will work and cook together as a team, and shared a workspace and the kitchen equipment with other participants. A group cooking session with partial group participation is the most effective and fun way to add to your cooking skills. To ensure the class finishes on time some elements of the dishes are demonstrated.
