Summer is coming

added 26th March 2018

We’ve so looking forward to some warmth and sun so we have shared our Portuguese Natas recipe with the lovely team at Villa Plus, one of the UK’s leading travel companies.

Villa Plus are highlighting recipes from the top European foodie destinations and have showcased one of our favourites - if we have a tough week - one of us always pops out for Natas from the bakery.   They never fail to cheer us up

‘Eat Like a Local’ is a campaign by Villa Plus, inspired by their customers’ love of immersing themselves in culture, cooking and local produce while holidaying.

Adverse Weather Update & Policy

added 26th February 2018


The Bertinet Kitchen

Update Friday 2 March 2018 8.30am

Adverse weather is forecast for much of the country this week including for Bath.

Unfortunately due to the snow overnight we have had to cancel the class today Friday 2 March and tomorrow 3 March.  At present we are planning to run all classes next week but we will review this decision over the weekend if conditions worsen.

Customers booked onto the classes on Friday 2 March and Saturday 3 March are asked to contact us by email to make arrangements to move to a new date.


Adverse weather policy

As stated in our Terms and Conditions, we are not able to offer refunds or late notice amendments to classes where customers are unable to reach us due to adverse weather conditions.   However, where we take the decision to cancel a class then we will move customers to a new date of their choice.

Where classes are running, you should take your own decisions as to whether it is safe to travel to us in Bath.  We do not encourage anyone to take any risks.  If you are unable to attend a class please let us know as soon as you can.  In the event that you are unable to reach us you may send someone else in your place but again please let us know.

We understand that, where adverse weather conditions are concerned, it is not your fault that you are not able to reach us.  Please understand that it is also not our fault.  We have to go ahead and run our classes where the chef is able to make it in and even just one customer is able to make it to the kitchen. 

As a goodwill gesture we will circulate (by email) a list of places available at short notice to those who have not been able to attend a class.  Emails will be sent out roughly fortnightly. It is unlikely that we will be able to offer the same class on the same day of the week but we hope that customers will be able to find a class and date that suits them.  The classes offered in this way will be available on a first come first served basis to all those in the same position.   Customers will be able to choose a replacement class of the same or a lesser value than their original class.  No refund or credit will be offered where the replacement class is of a lower value than the original class.  Customers wishing to book onto a more expensive class will be asked to top up the difference.
