Please read carefully as this affects your legal rights. In exchange for obtaining cooking class services, Participant agrees to the following:
General Release of Liability
While Verdello attempts to ensure a safe environment for cooking class services, Verdello’s kitchen contains potentially dangerous tools and utensils which are suitable to a kitchen environment. Participant will be exposed to and potentially using such items as, hot stoves, hot oil, and sharp tools including knives, blenders, and graters. This does not serve as an exhaustive list of potentially dangerous items Participant may be exposed to or using in the kitchen.
By agreeing to these terms and conditions, participant acknowledges that due to the contagious nature of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, Verdello cannot guarantee that a participant in Verdello’s kitchen will not be exposed and/or infected. Further, participant acknowledges that participation in a cooking class may increase the risk of a participant in contracting COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. Participant therefore acknowledges the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assumes the risk that he/she may be exposed to or infected by attending a cooking class at Verdello and that such exposures or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.
Participant agrees to not participate in a class if Participant, or anyone in Participant’s household, has been experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, which include but are not limited to, fever, fatigue, dry cough, and difficulty breathing, in the last fourteen (14) days.
Damage/Loss of Personal Property
Verdello will take all necessary care, but accepts no responsibility for the damage to or loss of personal property left on the property prior to, during or after a class or event. Verdello is not responsible for the loss or damage of personal items in any form.
Cancellation of a Class or Event
Verdello may be unable to provide for a class or event, Verdello will either reschedule the event, refund the cost of the class within a reasonable amount of time, or provide store credit. Inclement weather, inability of the chef to conduct the class, health and safety concerns, or classes not having the minimum of eight (8) participants, are events that may rise to the level of cancellation and do not serve as an exhaustive list. If cancellation occurs, Verdello will notify Participant as soon as possible.
Customer Cancellation Policy
Verdello requires payment of the full amount prior to the scheduled class. Due to the small class size and high demand, Verdello has a strict seventy-two-hour cancellation policy. Any seat reservation cancelled at least seventy-two hours prior will be fully refunded. A refund is not guaranteed if Participant cancels within seventy-two-hour period. Participant agrees to provide notice as soon as possible by calling Verdello during store hours at 307-655-8777.
Participant has an obligation to notify Verdello of any food allergy prior to the event. While Verdello will attempt to reasonably accommodate a Participant’s allergies, participants will be exposed to various food products and Verdello cannot guarantee that Participant will not be exposed to potential allergens. If a potential Participant has any questions regarding a class and the ingredients of a class prior to the event, it is Participant’s responsibility to contact Verdello at 307-655-8777 during store hours.

Further, Participant may purchase alcoholic beverages available in store for consumption and Participant is also welcome to bring alcoholic beverages, limited to beer and wine, to the cooking classes. If Participant brings their own alcoholic beverages, Verdello may charge a corking free. Participant agrees to consume the alcoholic beverages responsibly. It is Participant’s sole responsibility to coordinate safe driving practicing and to not drive while under the influence. Further, if Participant leaves the facility with any open alcoholic beverages, it is Participant’s sole responsibility to seal the beverage and to comply with all open container laws. Verdello will not tolerate any underage consumption or excessive drinking and will resolve situations in an appropriate manner which causes the least interference with rest of class. Verdello reserves the right to involve law enforcement in such circumstances. Verdello will not provide Participant with a refund for the class in the event Participant is asked to leave the premises for violating this provision.
The recipes provided to Participant during the course of the cooking class are the property or Verdello or the Chef teaching the class and Verdello and the Chef retain all rights to the recipes. Participant agrees the recipes are only for Participant’s personal non-commercial use and may not be sold, transferred or disseminated to other without the written consent of Verdello.
