Cooking Classes FAQ
1. How do I register for a class?
To register, visit our website at ToTT – Home and choose Cooking Classes at the top of the page. This features the list of the upcoming classes by month. Click “DETAILS” which leads you to the registration page. Fill in the necessary information and click the PayPal icon at the bottom. Payment in full is required at the time of registration.
2. Do I need to have a PayPal account to register?
No. There is no need to register on PayPal. Choose the other option (Pay with my credit or debit card) instead of “Pay with my PayPal account”. You can make your payment successful without logging/signing in.
3. I’m having a hard time registering online. Can I make a reservation?
We don’t make reservations for the class. To make sure you can join the class, come down to our store and make your payment at our Bistro cashier 3-5 days prior to the class. Paying on the day of the class is not allowed and won’t guarantee that you can join the class.
4. What is the format of your classes?
We have two different formats:
1) Hands-on classes – where participants take part in practising techniques and preparing the dishes. Participants will take home all the dishes they prepared in the class, as well as the recipe.
2) Demo classes – where participants observe while the chef explains and demonstrates the recipe preparation and cooking techniques. Participants will be given a tasting portion of all the dishes prepared during the class, as well as the recipe.
NOTE: All Complimentary Demo Cooking Class Vouchers are only valid until 31 Dec 2017
5. What happens after I register for a class?
Constant Contact will email you a confirmation of payment once it has been approved. Please ensure that the email address that you’ve provided on the registration page is a valid email address. We strongly encourage you to check your spam or junk folder as the emails sometimes get redirected there. ToTT is not responsible for any unread emails.
In the event that the minimum number of participants is not met, the class will be cancelled. We will inform you via email. You can choose to either get a refund of the cooking class fee or attend another class of the same value.

6. Can I cancel my registration?
No. All confirmed bookings are non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable to another class date should you be unable to attend the class. No refunds will be given for unattended classes. However, a replacement participant can be sent, with minimum 24 hours advanced notice via email from the registered participant. Replacement participant needs to produce printed confirmation slip and email.
7. What should I bring on the day of the classes?
You only need to bring your confirmation email and identification card. The ToTT studio is equipped with the tools needed in the class, so you don’t have to bring your own. Please bring containers to pack your food if you do not intend to consume the food on-site after the cooking class.
8. What should I wear?
Participants are advised to wear closed shoes for protection and dress in casual, comfortable attire.
