You should expect you'll have a good time. We always have a good time. Well, almost always. We've had one or two students who were grumpy. Still, more than 99% of our students tell us they had a good time.
You can expect that something will go wrong. That's life. One time we had to make a quick run to the nearest grocery store because someone (someone named Mike) didn't grab the second sack of flour as we were packing for the classes. You know, people look at you funny when you buy a hundred pounds of flour at the grocery store! Another time someone didn't pay quite enough attention when we talked about putting pizza in the oven, their pizza splattered all over the back of the hot oven and the fire alarm went off as the school filled with smoke. The firemen enjoyed some pizza to
You can expect that even though something will go wrong, you'll still make good baked goods, and you'll still have a good time.
In most classes, you can expect to go home with two or three baked goods, leftovers from the lunch you helped prepare, a book of recipes and, quite often, some other special things. Like a sourdough starter in our sourdough classes. Or some bagels to refrigerate overnight to boil and bake the next day, Maybe a jar of lemon curd if we made lemon curd in class and your name was pulled from the hat.
We're often asked if it's OK to bring children or pets to class. Pets, sorry, no. Some of the facilities we rent are commercial kitchens and they could lose their licenses if animals were brought in. Children? Well, you know your children. If you think they can remain on task for the length of the classes, and if you think they'll enjoy it, sure, they are welcome! Some of our best students have been children. As a word of caution, we don't have baby sitting facilities or much to keep bored kids busy..... all we have to offer in our locations is the class.
We can't guarantee it, but the chances are good you'll make some new friends, friends who are interested in many of the same things you are.
