I’m buying my parents a gift certificate for a cooking class for their gift for the wedding. I was about to check out and I see that there is a space for me to write in a gratuity. Has anyone ever taken a cooking class? Did you tip? How much? The class will already be $160/couple.

@SweetDeeReynolds: I have never tipped for a cooking class – I actually did not even think of this! Not sure what I’d do – because the tip comes after the actual service, right?

@sienna76: I generally think of the tip reflecting the service, so it does feel a bit weird for me to build it in not knowing for sure how good the experience will be. However, if tipping is common in these situations I would want to be sure to cover everything up front so they can just go and enjoy the class.

@SweetDeeReynolds: maybe just 10% but I think it’s a little odd to tip for a class?

The cooking classes I’ve done have always been by the owners of the business. I never thought to give a tip, and I didn’t see others tipping either. Maybe we were all rude.

I have taken a lot of cooking classes and have never tipped for one, and I feel like I live in the tipping capital of the universe.

I took a cooking class once, but didn’t tip, because we had to pay before the class. Come to think of it, I don’t think anyone tipped. Is it normal to do so?
