Responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19) – updated 3/11/2020
By now, we’re all aware of the seriousness of the Coronavirus and we wanted to reach out to you to remind and/or inform of how seriously we take your personal health as well as our clean standards (both the studio itself and of what we require of ourselves and the people at our studio).
For over 10 years Let’s Cultivate Food has been exercising the same good health and safety measures that the World Health Organization is widely publicly recommending during this time. We’ve always believed in clean hands and workspace, and provide the same information and tools for doing this during our classes now as we did when we started a decade ago. We’re also staying on top of any additional information and guidelines that are being advised.
We take every precaution we can to ensure your safety and enjoyment. To this point, if you are feeling under the weather prior to a class or are concerned that others might be, we are temporarily expanding our rescheduling policies. Please see additional notes in the FAQ section of the class you’ve enrolled in or are considering.
Most frequent questions and answers (updated 11/22/19)
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
If you cannot make your class, please email us.
You would be given credit of the amount paid toward another Let’s Cultivate Food class only if your cancellation is greater than 10 days out. Under 10 days, tickets are transferable to someone else for that day but not refundable. There is a great deal of time and planning for each class as well as classes often sell out weeks in advance making your tickets not available for someone else who could have attended.
In addition to reserving space for you, we also buy food, incur costs associated with ticket purchase, etc. Weather cancellations would only be made by LCF. Thanks for your understanding.
WHAT MAKES LCF BETTER?
We have a strong passion for food because we get that food is life. We love teaching by example and have a lot of restaurant insider examples and practical (not commonly known) techniques to offer to make your life easier and better. But aside from giving you the world’s greatest best kept restaurant and kitchen secrets, we’ve been told we offer a fun, dare we say cool experience in getting this information – at our Let’s Cultivate Food cooking classes. Perfect for couples, family and if you’re flying solo and looking to meet new friends.
The experience – At our lofty studio with a chic 12 foot pub style table, with super fun little kitchen gadget shop (everything is mostly $7 and we often give them away during food trivia while you’re eating), and our uncommon attention to fun details (like our sriracha bottle soap dispensers), or our own hipster music channel (w our own commercials) – our unique Manayunk studio offers a great environment to spend a few hours leaning, celebrating, or any other reason that brings you there.
In the comforts of your designated space (office or home), we’ll unpack all of the goodness of our studio classes at your location. We’re mobile.
We’re not like processed foods – We never pretend to be something we’re not. We would never use Photoshop to fake fun, add fake reviews on our website to give false impressions, give ourselves grand titles, etc.. You get the point. Our classes and experiences are ‘grade A’ – ‘farm fresh’ AWESOMENESS! We let our reputation speak for itself. ..and we thank you PHILLY for that!!
BYO / ALCOHOL POLICIES
For those 21+ you can certainly BYO and for some events a complimentary glass of wine may be offered. We do limit the amount of alcoholic consumption by any individual to (2) glasses and we will not offer any complimentary alcohol within 45 minutes of the event ending. If we feel someone is abusing this policy and/or seems to be unable to handle an adult beverage, we will remove the beverage and if needed arrange an Uber/Lyft.
LET'S CULTIVATE FOOD RADIO - REALLY?
Yes, It’s true that we have our our studio music channel. The music goes with the flow of the class with intermittent LCF announcements & fun commercials. The type of music is considered modern hipster and changes monthly and will only connect within close proximity of the studio.
LCF Food trivia
Ok! At the next class or event, ask us to do some food trivia for prizes. At some point, this question WILL come up. Google it, and you’re sure to get a free gadget. And the question is.. “How many squirts does it take to get a gallon of milk from a cow?”
ABOUT our LCF Manayunk studio
Tucked away in trendy Manayunk lies the hidden LCF studio. We are open for publicly listed and private events. We can also meet there for catering consultations.
This is one of LCF properties and with this lofty studio, ideal for cooking classes and small catered events, comes access to parking which for many is a great convenience in the area.
We are not available for walk-in traffic and request that all appointments be scheduled. Thank you!
