How do I use A gift card at Stir?

With our new system, we cannot redeem gift cards during the checkout process. You are more than welcome to use your gift card, and we will process it one of two ways: 

1. Purchase the tickets of choice and contact us directly at info@stirboston.com and we will refund you the amount of the gift card.

2. You can contact us directly with your gift card information and we can make the reservation for you — during this process however, we cannot guarantee that the tickets you request will still be available by the time we process the request for you.

What time does the class start?

All classes, unless otherwise noted, start promptly at 7 p.m.  The times on Sundays tend to differ depending on the theme/topic.


How can I give a cooking class as a gift?

Given that Stir is so unique and intimate, we aren’t able to offer refunds or switch folks to other classes if they aren’t able to attend.  Because of this, we do recommend that you purchase a gift card.  We can issue gift cards in any denomination and can mail them to you or you can stop by and pick it up at the shop.


Should I eat before I come?

Each class presents at least a 4 course meal paired with beer, wine and/or cocktails depending on the theme of the evening unless otherwise noted.


What should I bring/wear?

All of the class materials are included in the cost of the evening.  Stir is a relaxed environment so please feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable in!


Can you adjust to my allergies/dietary restrictions?

Yes, we always accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions with advance notice.


What is the cancellation policy?

Classes are non refundable but are redeemable to other guests.  Given that Stir is so special and intimate, we are not able to offer refunds or exchanges to classes that have been reserved. You may send someone in your place if you are not able to make it, however we do require you to call us at least 48 hours in advance with any food allergies or dietary restrictions that may have changed.
