Food allergies, sensitivities and food limitations
Cooking Round the World is committed to providing a fun, healthy and safe learning experience for children and others. We strive to do our best to accommodate a variety of special food needs and limitations
Nuts: As of December 1, 2013, we are a completely nut-free program. No tree nuts or peanuts are used in any recipe
Below is a list of food allergies that we CAN accommodate if you provide us with 2 weeks advance notice prior to the start date of the class or camp. This gives us time to modify recipes, contact teachers and ensure we can secure alternative ingredients, if needed.
Fruit: the specific fruit should be identified
Seafood: Some of our recipes have fish, fish sauce, oyster sauce, etc, Please let us know the specific seafood your child is allergic to
Sesame seeds and sesame oil.
If your child is a vegetarian, we can usually accommodate these needs with 2 weeks advance notice.
If your child is sensitive to gluten and/or has celiac disease please contact us prior to registering for classes or camp to see if it’s possible to modify recipes for the classes. We may ask you to help pay for alternative ingredients.
If your child is sensitive to food preservatives, dyes, or food coloring, eggs or dairy we do NOT advise you to register your child for Cooking Round the World classes or camp.
If your child’s allergy is so severe that he/she can not be in the room or near others, touch utensils or cookware that may have come in contact with the allergen, we do not advise you to register your child for Cooking Round the World classes or camp. We are unable to take the necessary precautions to provide your child with the utmost safety.
If you register for a class after the two-week advance notice requirement and your child has a food sensitivity or limitation, please contact us directly to see if we can accommodate your child’s needs.
