Cooking workshops:

What happens if I fail to arrive in time to a class?

Vanesa will contact you 5 minutes prior the scheduled time. If after 15 minutes you are unreachable, she will cancer your class. Should this be the case, she will offer you an additional time to schedule the class again.

What happens if my connection is poor during the class?

Before scheduling a class, we kindly ask you to consider whether your internet connection is stable enough for this. If this is not the case, we encourage you not to order this service since you will not be able to fully enjoy the experience.

What happens if I don't have all the necessary tools?

Vanesa will let you know of alternative tools to use. In this case, there are no guarantees that the final result is the one expected.

What happens if I don't have all the ingredients or all of the suggested ones?

Like in the previous question, if you are missing some ingredients, the final result will forcefully be distinct to the one intended. If you can't find a product let us know and we will try to help you.
