Coronavirus COVID-19 Statement

UPDATE AS AT 13/07/20

With Metropolitan Melbourne again in Lockdown  until Wednesday 19/08/20 at 11.59pm  we are unfortunately unable to resume our cooking classes. 
All customers with bookings will be contacted directly with details of options for transfer and postponement.

Stay at Home Directions are as follows :

 

  • Stay at home directions will remain in place for metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire until 11.59pm Wednesday 19 August.
  • People who live in these areas are only allowed to go out for four reasons: shopping for food and supplies, health care and caregiving, outdoor exercise, and study or work – if unable to work or study from home.

Firstly, we are committed to the health and safety of our staff, customers and the wider community.   

Before the reintroduction of Lockdown, some restrictions were eased but only to allow demonstration style cooking classes, where everyone sits down, which means we can't run  the hands on style classes that we are known for.  We are looking at opportunities to present demonstration style sessions, and will be contacting customers to gauge the level of interest in this option.

We will be monitoring for changes regularly and are very much looking forward to resuming our well loved "hands on" style sessions. 

All customers who have purchased / booked for postponed classes will receive an email from Spice Bazaar in the week prior to the booked session,
advising of the situation and outlining your options. If you haven’t received it, please check your junk email folder in case it has arrived there.

We are currently working on our schedule (with the anticipation that the regulations will allow us to resume classes in the near future)
so there will soon be dates available to the end of the year.  

We thank you for your ongoing support in these uncertain times, especially  in helping to ensure we remain a viable ongoing small business to continue to deliver innovative, fun, world class culinary experiences!

Much appreciated,
Stay Safe and Keep Cooing!

CORONA VIRUS STATEMENT FROM SPICE BAZAAR COOKING SCHOOL

We hope you are keeping safe and well!

Pat & Jill from the family-run Spice Bazaar Cooking School have early this week taken the decision to postpone all cooking classes from March 20th,2020 onwards until a safer time later in the year.  
We believe this to be the socially responsible action as we are
committed to the health and safety of our staff, customers and the wider community amid this current situation of corona virus infections.   

If you haven’t booked a class yet or want to support us, we would love to have your support by purchasing a gift voucher which is valid for 3 years and provides us with some much needed cashflow during these times when our classes aren’t running.

 

Here is another way to help in keeping the lights on until we resume normal business with classes and tours...

 

We have not taken this decision lightly, but believe it would not be possible to adhere to the 1.5m social distancing recommendations while all cooking together. 

Our cooking classes are hands on, fun, interactive, working closely in small groups over a 4-5 hour period.

We will be continually assessing the situation on a daily basis and how the pandemic is evolving, and will be driven by W.H.O. and Government guidelines.
All customers who have purchased / booked for postponed classes will receive an email from Spice Bazaar in the week prior to the booked session advising of this. If you haven’t received it, please check your junk email folder in case it has arrived there.
Once again, safety is our priority.

We have just extended our schedule to the June – September 2020 period to accommodate transfers.
We’d love to host you in one of our fantastic cooking class experiences at a safer time, and will offer you a free transfer to another cooking class for a date that suits you in the months ahead, or as soon as it is safe to do so! Note also that you can choose any class with availability, not just the cuisine you originally booked!

We appreciate and value your support of our small, family run, local business . 

It’s our 11th year of hosting our cooking classes (we started with 3 menus and now have over 18), and we were so pleased to anticipate the most successful year ever, with fully booked classes so far ahead.We know everyone is being impacted at this time, and how devastating it is for many small businesses, some of which may struggle to survive the types of income drops we are about to experience.

We thank you for your ongoing support in these uncertain times, especially  in helping to ensure we remain a viable ongoing small business to continue to deliver innovative, fun, world class culinary experiences!

Much appreciated,

Patrick and Jill
