Following the government announcement yesterday (and subject to legislation being introduced and passed this week), it is anticipated the school will be required to close for 4 weeks from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd December inclusive.
During this time we will not be able to offer our in person classes. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause our customers but the situation is once again out of our hands. Cookery schools are unfortunately not ‘education’ for the purposes of the COVID regulations but are treated like other entertainment venues.
The closure will not affect the Online Baking clinic scheduled for 24 November or Online Baking party scheduled for 3 December. We very much hope we will be running our classes again from 4 December and will be working on the basis that these will go ahead.
We will be in touch with everyone who is booked on classes during November over the course of the coming week or so, to discuss rescheduling their class. In order to facilitate a good choice of dates we will look to add additional classes to the schedule. Please bear with us during this time until we contact you.
Our mail order shop will not be affected and we will continue to despatch all of your baking equipment, flour, yeast, and other supplies so you can continue to bake at home. Do make sure you are following both @RichardBertinet and @TheBertinetKitchen on Instagram for baking tips, videos and fun and to stay up to date with the very lates news.
Thank you for your support at this difficult time.
Richard & Jo Bertinet
