Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Students canceling due to concerns about the Coronavirus situation, a full store credit may be issued so that they can rebook a class in the future.


Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund; but please note a transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is canceled by the registrant/student based on the following scale: 

  • classes up to $125 will incur a $20 fee
  • classes in the $126-$350 range will have a $30 fee
  • classes valued over $351 will incur a $50 fee. 

When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the corresponding transaction fee will be deducted. Rescheduling a class entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. 

There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given. In case of class cancellation, all students will be notified and a full refund will be given.

Dim Sum
Reviewed by Amanda W. on 1/13/2020
This was my first ICE course. As an experience, it was alot of fun. As a cooking class, I was hoping to learn more and felt the way it was structured was a bit chaotic. There were just a few demos from the chef, and we were basically set loose to rush around the kitchen to cook 6 different recipes in 2.5 hours. The recipe instructions could have been more detailed, and it felt like they were being workshopped - one had a recommendation for a Worchester dipping sauce (for dumplings) that the chef instructor acknowledged was a mistake, and another recipe called for a steaming cooking method that the chef said we could skip in lieu of pan frying. Meatballs had to be steamed much longer than the recipe called for. I'd suggest for future classes a more organized approach - give attendees a brief overview of where to find everything in the kitchen. Make sure all the ingredients are adequately prepped (the wanton wrappers were not fully thawed for example and that made folding the dumplings more challenging). Use recipes that have been thoroughly reviewed/tested. The fun parts were working together - we all had to partner up with two neighbors to cook all 6 recipes in that time - and eating the delicious food together at the end. It was a fun date night for my husband and I.

Teacher was new to the course (filling in for another one, it seems) so didn't know the recipes and wasn't great at explaining what we were doing. She was quite nice, but would have benefited from some studying beforehand of the recipes and practice of the procedures.

Dim sum meatballs were not the ones you have in Chinatown. I felt awkward asking questions because staff were in such a rush to prepare the dishes. We ended up finishing 20 minutes early. So maybe more time to address questions asked in class?
