Age Requirements


Students must be a minimum of 16 years of age to enroll in cooking classes and a minimum of 21 years of age to enroll in wine, beer, or cocktail classes, with the exception of classes for Future Chefs.

Young aspiring chefs must be at least 13 years of age to participate in Future Chef classes. Rising culinary stars younger than 18 will need a parent or guardian to vouch for them as a co-signer.


Cancellations and Refunds

For all courses, payment in full is required at the time of registration. Refunds will only be issued in the event that the ICC cancels a course. Students will be given advance notice of cancellations. Effective for all recreational course registrations beginning on November 1, 2014, if you cancel your registration 14 or more calendar days prior to your course start date, you will be issued a credit equal to the amount paid that may be applied towards the cost of a future class. This credit must be used within three years from your original registration date. If you cancel your registration with less than 14 calendar days prior to your course start date or you attend no portion of the registered course, no credit will be issued. Gift certificates are non-refundable and not transferrable. In order to minimize class interruptions, ICC maintains the right to deny student registration and/or entrance if they are more than 30 minutes late. Please note that we are unable to offer makeup classes.

What to Wear


Proper attire is very important for safety and sanitary reasons. All students must wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and black non-slip, closed-toe shoes (no sneakers, loafers, sandals, etc.) for any hands-on cooking classes you attend. Please refrain from wearing dangle earrings. Hair that covers the collar should be tied back. Aprons and skull caps will be provided for use during class.

There are no dress requirements for classes that do not include hands-on cooking or baking.


Cell Phone Policy


Please respect your classmates and your instructor by refraining from using a cell phone to make calls or text messages during class. There are designated areas where cell phone use is allowed.
