Cancellations, changes of dates
Can classes be cancelled on the side of a guest?
Each open culinary course has a free cancellation period set. If cancelled before this date, the entire amount will be returned to the card with which the payment has been made. If you cancel after this date, no refund is possible. Some courses have no refund possible policy (Flavours of Polish Christmas).
Private culinary courses cannot be cancelled, because the whole venue is reserved for this particular event. In some cases, it is however possible to change the date of the cooking class.
Can I change the date of open classes?
Yes, you can change the date of an open class, but only until the end of the free cancellation period. These points are set differently for different types of courses. It is related to the different length of time that we need to prepare the workshop: from 2 to 4 days. some seasonal courses are non-refundable (eg. Christmas classes).
