Important Things To Know
& Common Questions

Important Reminders For Wine & Beer Consumption 

  • We do not serve wine or beer until after the instruction is over. 

  • Guests cannot cook if they have been drinking prior to arrival for safety purposes.  

  • It's important to remind all guests that this is not a drinking "venue". While everyone can responsibly enjoy wine while cooking, we cannot allow guests to continue cooking if anyone is noticeably intoxicated. 

  • You must be 21 or over with a valid ID on you to consume wine or beer. 

  • You must arrange responsible transportation if you are consuming adult beverages.  

  • You cannot bring your own wine or beer. All adult beverages are purchased directly from the venue. We assist you in ordering the wine and beer. The wine and beer is paid on a separate invoice directly from The Hood Kitchen. 

  • The venue is not licensed for anyone to consume liquor. 


"While in California for business, my  team and I participated in one of Chef Stephanie's cooking class "battles" as a team building event. This was quite literally one of the best experiences and events that we have ever planned. Chef Stephanie and her team provided not only a fun, inviting, and delicious event - but the attention she gave to our team is worth more than 5 stars. If you are looking for a fun activity, great coaching, and good food - I 100% recommend Chef Stephanie for your next event. Can't wait to come back next year for another amazing cooking experience.  Thank you so much for everything Chef Stephanie!!!"

"I've worked with Chef Stephanie on multiple corporate virtual events. She consistently produces fun and engaging experiences which is so impressive due to the temptation to multi-task we all face when we're in front of a screen. Attendees often stay on much longer than the original duration because they are genuinely having fun. Our virtual events consist of some technical content that can be dry but Chef Stefanie takes the time to understand the objectives and audience to create one cohesive experience. She's super quick to respond, very organized and a dream to work with as not all event vendors are created equal. I really appreciate the creativity, flexibility and professionalism Chef Stephanie brings to the table and hope to work with her over and over again!
