Coronavirus COVID-19 Statement

 Spice Bazaar Cooking School COVID-19 POLICY  

 Revised: 25/10/21

RESUMING HANDS ON COOKING CLASSES (Post Lockdown 6)

The latest  Victorian Government guidelines for our industry permit us to resume Hands On Cooking Classes under an 80% double vaccination level effective from 28/10/2021 only for fully vaccinated attendees. 
If you have any queries about dietary issues or intolerances you must contact us directly to enquire before booking.

 

ONLINE COOKING CLASSES

For those that don't meet the vaccination criteria, we are excited to offer a limited set of special Zoom 'online' cooking classes 
We'll provide you a "Spice Bazaar FOOD WINE ZOOM COOK DINE Starter Pack" which will include your shopping list, equipment list, list of any pre-preparation needed, the Zoom invitation. You can then join us at the allocated time and cook along in your own home. 

 

RULES FOR THE HANDS ON SESSION (How we will keep you safe)

We will generally be hosting up to 3 groups subject to current density quotient rules.

Each group will :
a) Aim to be separated by 1.5 metres where possible
b) Have separate cooking facilities, separate preparation benches and separate dining tables
c) Need to wear masks indoors during arrival, departure, moving around and whilst carrying out food preparation and cooking (until further notice).
d) Not need to wear masks whilst dining at tables only
We will be maintaining an increased level of cleaning/sanitizing throughout, and before and after sessions. All dishes are washed at 80 degrees as usual.

 

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU BEFORE THE SESSION AND ON THE DAY

In order to keep everyone as safe as possible we need you to :
1) Supply contact information for all attendees by email prior to the session so as to avoid queues at the door:  full name, phone number, postcode, any previously agreed dietary issues, and confirmation that you have read and understood these rules and guidelines for participating in the Spice Bazaar cooking class and proof that all participants are fully vaccinated (must be checked again upon entry)
2) Registration using Victorian Government QR code must be done on arrival at site together with confirmation of vaccination status via Service Victoria phone app.  Failure to provide proof of full vaccination will mean the person will be turned away and no refund or rebooking will be permitted.
3) Answer questions regarding Covid-19 symptoms :
- whether you or other participants in your booking have any symptoms however minor,
- whether you have been in contact with someone
- who is a suspected/probable/confirmed Covid19 case.
- If you are coughing/sneezing we will have to ask you to leave.
- Please do not attend if you are unwell, however you must let us know before class start time
4) Bring along & wear a mask at all times during the session unless eating or drinking.
5) Bring a bag to store your mask when you are eating.

7) Avoid touching your face and mask. Wash your hands or sanitise if you do.
8) Do not share utensils, plates, glasses with other groups

MANAGING YOUR BOOKING

Our schedule is now online but bookings from postponed classes must be made directly with us by reply to your order confirmation or last correspondence or via our email form to arrange your new booking date and time.
With the current restrictions, participant numbers in public classes will be limited to a maximum of 12 per session.
