The Dynamite Shop’s Code of Conduct
Follow the rules of a professional kitchen!
Wash your hands often using the bathroom sink -- upon arrival, after using the restroom, if you touch your face or hair, and frequently between tasks. Use warm water with soap, really get the suds going for a good 10/15 seconds. Back and front of hands, between fingers. Use a paper towel to dry and turn off water faucet.
Do not taste anything with your fingers. We will provide spoons for tasting.
Ingredients are for cooking, not snacking.
Cover your face with the inside of your elbow when you sneeze or cough, then wash your hands.
Do not touch tools and equipment unless until you have received instructions from an instructor.
Respect your neighbor’s cooking space. Do not grab tools and equipment from others.
Announce when you are walking near someone, especially if you’re holding something sharp or hot!
Keep a clean workspace.
Rules for using our space!
Do not sit on the work tables or lean against the teaching counter.
Do not tip back in the chairs.
Do not run or roughhouse in any way in the building.
Do not step into the teaching kitchen (black tile floor area) or behind the coffee bar.
Do not go into the front cafe space once class starts unless the teacher brings you there for an activity.
Only one person in the bathroom at once.
Dress for success!
No open-toed shoes, crop-tops, or baggy sleeves.
No bracelets, necklaces, rings or earrings with beads, feathers or anything else that could fall in food.
Long hair should be tied back or up in a hat. We have Dynamite Hats for sale if you need one.
Bonus points for food-themed clothes!
Finally, the basic stuff!
Be respectful of your fellow students. We have a zero-tolerance policy on disrespect of any kind.
Listen to your leaders. When our hand goes up it, yours does too, and we all stop talking.
No cell phones at any time. Upon arrival you will check in your cell-phone. If you have an emergency and need to reach your parents, we will help you by calling on our landline.
When you need to use the bathroom, be respectful of instructors who are speaking. (Only one person at a time!)
Be open-minded; you’re here to learn and taste new things.
Ask questions and have fun!
We expect top-notch behavior. Students who are unable to follow the rules will be sent home.
