Terms and conditions

What time is the cooking class and for how long? Morning classes start at 830am and evening classes start at 5pm. Each class takes about 4- 5hours, this may vary so you may be able to enjoy your food, take time to know other people and relax.

Do we get to eat during the class? The best part of this class is that you get to enjoy your dishes! We will give you time to appreciate and eat your creations. You may also take this to go if you prefer.

Do you need cooking experience to get in this class? Absolutely not! We welcome beginners to culinary savants. Our Instructor would ensure to guide you in every step of the way.

What if I’m allergic to some of the ingredients? Important to notify us before confirming your booking regarding your allergies. We do provide alternative ingredients if needed. (Example: Change of Shrimp to Chicken).

Can children take this class? Yes, however we recommend that they take a private class together with an adult to supervise that will also be joining the class.

Do we need to pay in full before booking? Yes, this is to ensure that we reserve you a slot in the class.
Something came up, can we cancel our bookings? We do not cancel bookings, however we can rebook you to the nearest available slot. Please do notify us a day before the set schedule so we may be able to process this from our end, otherwise we will confirm this as a cancellation. No refunds.

What if it rains/ there’s an incoming typhoon? Will we be notified if the class will be cancelled? Philippine weather can be unpredictable during the rainy season (June to October). Should there be a need to cancel the class due to heavy rains, we will reach out to you immediately. Only if this happens that you can either rebook or get your refund.

How do I get to this place? If you are in El Nido town, get a tricycle and ask to take you to Joaquin Street, but most locals know this as “Puting Bato”. Our signage will be very visible, you can’t miss it. Nearest landmark is that we are across from Bamboo Billabong Hostel. (For third party bookings, there will be a clear instruction to guide you to our location in your reservation ticket so you may be able to find this more easily.) 

How exotic are the ingredients? The ingredients are very basic and usually can be found in any Asian market. However, we would recommend substitutes just in case this will not be available in your area.

We may be able to do replacements for certain items but should be minimal. Meal sets will depend on the availability in the market, but El Kusina will still follow the 5course set meal regardless if there will be replacements. For any food allergies or restrictions, please let us know.
