Cancellation Policy

Thank you for registering to attend a Sur La Table Cooking Class or Private Event. This policy describes what happens should you need to cancel. To receive a full refund, cancel up to 48 hours before the scheduled start time for cooking classes and at least 14 days before the scheduled date for private events. Refunds will be processed using the original payment method. Should you prefer, you can choose to receive your refund in the form of a Sur La Table Gift Card.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds or in-store credit for cancellations made within 48 hours of your class start time or within 14 days of your private event. Cancellations or changes can be made (1) in person at the class location or (2) by calling toll-free Customer Service at 317-559-2041 during normal business hours. We cannot accept or honor cancellations made by email or left on voicemail.

When Sur La Table must cancel a class due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond our control (e.g., power outages, facility issues, etc.), we will attempt to notify you by email or telephone with as much notice as possible. If this occurs, Sur La Table will issue a full refund to the original form of payment or, should you choose, a Sur La Table gift card. However, if we do not affirmatively cancel a class by email or telephone and you are unable to attend, our standard cancellation policy applies. Please note that Sur La Table reserves the right to modify class menus at any time due to ingredient availability or seasonality.

What you will learn
Many accomplished cooks feel less than confident when it comes to baking. Using precise measurements and following specific techniques sends many home chefs rushing to the bakery to buy dessert. If you’re one of those fearful bakers, we’ve created a fun and engaging class series designed to turn everyone into fearless bakers.

Based on the definitive and approachable guidebook for beginners in the wonderful world of baking, The Fearless Baker, this 3-part series is designed to help nervous novices shed their fears of the oven. This seminal baking book was written by renowned Bay Area pastry chef Emily Luchetti. A 2004 James Beard award-winner and the current Vice Chair of The James Beard Foundation, Chef Luchetti has over two decades of experience creating what many consider to be among the finest desserts in the world. Luchetti walks first-time bakers through 175 sophisticated but simple-to-follow recipes and troubleshoots common baking problems with colorful illustrations and photographs of real bakers at work. Her friendly tone makes using it almost like having a professional pastry chef at your side, so home cooks can progress to more elaborate recipes and cooking techniques at their own pace.

In this hands-on baking class series, our chef instructors will help students master the basics of measuring, mixing, assembling and baking a variety of baked goods, including cakes, pies, tarts, breads, and dessert classics. You’ll learn how to approach and execute any baking recipe with skill and confidence as you discover how to properly work with basic baking ingredients and tools.

Join us for this special series based on this legendary cookbook to build your confidence and become a truly fearless baker at home. Each student receives a free autographed copy of The Fearless Baker by Emily Luchetti.
