An apron will be provided to each participant during the class.
Participants with long hair must have it tied back during class.

Allergy Policy for Lunch Classes, Chef’s Table & Hands-On:
Please ensure you have identified all allergies and dietary restrictions. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the food preparation for our classes, we are unable to make substitutions for themed dishes. However, we will ensure that you are served food that is safe for you, but it may not reflect the theme of the class. Allergies must be noted at the time of registration.
Allergy Policy for Kid’s Cooking Camps:
Unfortunately, due to the volume of the recipes children will be making during the camp we are unable to accommodate any food allergies or dietary restrictions. If your child has a food allergy that you believe will restrict what they are able to eat during the camp (snacks and lunch), we advise that they bring a bagged lunch.
While the recipes prepared during camps will be nut-free, due to the nature of our facility, the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen cannot guarantee that there will be no exposure to nut products or other allergens.
Cooking classes and demonstrations are paid in full at time of booking and can be made in person, online or over the telephone. Confirmation of phone registrations will be sent via email and receipts will be available to pick-up when you arrive for your class.
For safety reasons, children under the age of 8 are not permitted in our facility.
If registration for a class is less than twelve (12) people, we reserve the right to cancel the class to ensure participants enjoy the very best experience possible. We will make every effort to contact guests in advance and will offer you an opportunity to re-book for another class or provide a full refund.
Our classes strive to be an inclusive environment for all adults. Please make us aware of any disabilities or behavioural needs that may affect your participation. Registration is required for all individuals attending classes at ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen including Personal Support Workers. Please contact us if you require further information.
Our cooking camps strive to be an inclusive environment for all children. Please make us aware of any disabilities or behavioural needs that may affect your child’s participation. While our goal is inclusive participation, there are times when a child requires more support than our current ratios are able to provide. Therefore ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen welcomes the opportunity for parents to send a support person to accompany the child. Please contact us if you require further information.
