What is the cost of the class?
We offer several packages. A drop in class is $60, a package of 6 is $270 ($45 per class), and a package of 12 is $480 ($40 per class). If you are not ready to buy a package, ask about our Frequent Diner's Club discount. A class includes demonstration and tastings of up to 4 courses, beverage, packet of recipes and relevant information, and Q&A with our licensed nutritionist.
How do i sign up?
For the fastest sign-up, please call us at 410-992-4747. If you are not a patient of Crossroads Medical, you will be required to reserve your set with a valid credit card.
What happens if i cannot attend after i signed up?
We kindly ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice to cancel your reservation so we can offer it to someone on the wait list. Because these classes are popular and seats are limited, we charge a missed class/late cancellation fee of $25.
Can i use insurance to cover the class?
It depends. If you are a patient of a participating doctor at Crossroads Medicine, then a portion of the class may be covered once per month. You are responsible for your regular co-pay.
Are the classes gluten free/ dairy free/ etc?
All of our classes are gluten free. Most of our classes are dairy free as well. There will always be options for people who are dairy free. If you have an allergy or sensitivity other than gluten or dairy, you must let us know at least a week before your class so that we can prepare accordingly.
ARE THE CLASSES vegetarian or vegan?
Our classes are based on the Mediterranean diet which puts a heavy focus on plant based foods. However, some classes also highlight animal based foods such as fish, lean proteins, eggs, and some dairy. With that said, we can almost always accommodate vegans or vegetarians with one week's notice. We offer several completely plant based classes as well.
Will i be cooking the food?
Our classes are demonstrations. You will be sitting around a open kitchen with about 9 other people watching our nutritionists prepare the dishes. You are encouraged to ask questions from start to finish to make sure you know how to recreate them at home. You will leave with a packet of recipes created in class and the confidence and motivation to recreate them at home.
Should I eat dinner before i come?
Absolutely not! We prepare at least 3 courses which will be served as they are ready. The only exceptions would be classes such as "Healthy Sweets" or "Summer Smoothies" where the portions are smaller and may not constitute as dinner.
