Due to the most recent government announcement the following steps will be as follows:

Flavours will be re-opening its kitchen on 6th April 2021 to host the Easter half term kids’ activities followed by our 6-week Teen Taste and Little chefs’ program.

This then leads us to Step 2 on the Government road map 17th May 2021 which will enable us to further open the kitchen to our adults’ clubs and classes, continuing with social distance measures already set in place.

Social classes such as chefs’ tables, lunch clubs, kids’ parties are still on hold and we will update on these events in due course

These dates are tentative due to the possibility of change and further prolonged restrictions so we will release the schedules in line with being able to confirm any new transferred bookings.

We will be cooking together soon…….

Kind regards,

Chef Des, Amy & the Flavours Team x
