    Experience #2: Virtual Class with Food Delivery** 

    For those who prefer to view and dine from the comfort of your home. 

    What's included:

    • Your meal will be delivered fully prepared; reheating/prep instructions to come from the chef throughout the video class and noted in your recipes
    • Live demonstration on Zoom
    • PDF of the recipe booklet
    • Bottled S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water
    • Package of Lavazza coffee

    In some cases, you can enhance your experience by having the restaurant deliver the paired beverages that will be featured during the class. These would be billed to you directly by the restaurant and made available with the purchase of additional food, as allowed under state and city COVID-19 guidelines.

    **Delivery:

    Your meal will be delivered either the evening before or the day of your class, by our VIP Concierge service, Haute Kitchen

    A representative will email you the day before your delivery for confirmation, including verification of your address and contact information. A text message will be sent a few minutes prior to arrival, and after your delivery has been dropped. 

    It's imperative that you provide De Gustibus with a mobile number to ensure direct contact on delivery.  Any issues or concerns with your delivery, please contact Ops@Haute.Kitchen or reply to their email and/or text directly.
