  • Each family, couple or person attending the class will have their own area to prepare food and eat. 
  • Your food may be served on individual plates with disposable utensils (i.e. chopsticks). If non-disposable dishes are used they will be cleaned and sanitised properly by our staff. 
  • You will be provided with a disposable plastic apron but you are more than welcome to bring your own if you wish.
  • We will only be accepting online payments on the day for any purchase of Atsuko’s cookbooks.
