Dietary restrictions and allergies
Please note that all our menus are fixed. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, we cannot guarantee a replacement dish. Please inform us of any allergies or restrictions before your workshop.
It is up to you whether to drink all or part of the glasses you are served and to control your alcohol consumption.
As recommended by the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux, we require our instructors to ask participants for proof of age if they appear to be younger than 25. This is to help ensure that alcohol is not served to minors. Individuals under 18 may not take courses during which alcohol is served.
