6. Sandra, Your Private Chef
from 33 reviews

"I used Sandra for a surprise bday present for my wife, just the two of us. I had never used a private chef before and was afraid to once I started interviewing because they would push what they knew how to cook and I wasn't sure I was being listened to. Sandra was the opposite. She never forced anything, she just listened to what I wanted and then sent me a menu that was exactly what I had envisioned and more. The one other criteria I had and told Sandra was I wanted a meal that my wife could not compare to any restaurant. I wanted something unique that tastes so good, it was incomparable. And she delivered! In the end, the food was amazing, the menu consisted of a lobster appetizer, amazing arugula salad just the way we like it, a filet like none other for me and salmon with pineapple and mango that my wife loved and couldn't compare to any restaurant, and for my wife (a huge dessert lover) Sandra made both "berries in heaven" (absolutely amazing) and a chocolate fondant (equally amazing)! I cannot express enough that Sandra was the perfect choice, delivered an amazing meal, provided incredible service, and was just a pleasure to have in our house and even more of a pleasure to eat her food! We are now planning on using her on an on-going basis because how could you not?! Better than restaurant quality food, amazing service, highly competitive pricing, and all with the convenience of being in your own home! What an amazing experience! So, to make a long review short, just hire her, you won't be sorry!"

9. Flame & Fish

"Sarah worked with me as chef onboard a 34m private sailing yacht. Her arrival onboard was serendipitous. When Sarah joined us at the eleventh hour; she had no time to provision, explore the galley (kitchen) or menu plan. She came onboard and it was 1-2-3 cook. Under these most challenging of circumstances she excelled and ultimately made a family cruise in New Zealand a great success. Given such an auspicious start Sarah was invited to stay onboard and happily for us she accepted. Since then we have cruised the Caribbean and Europe crossing the Atlantic three times. As a chef I have I hold Sarah in the very highest esteem. Her food was varied, healthy, balanced, beautiful and delicious. Sarah lives and breathes food. It is her passion and her hobby. Sarah’s culinary knowledge is well founded in the basic principles of cooking and that of nutrition. Her expansive knowledge of cuisine is worldly, yet she maintains a desire to learn and a healthy deference to the opinion of others. In the galley she is organized, keeps her station clean and is never flustered. As an individual she is passionate, a hard worker, entertaining and possesses a keen sense of humor. Sarah has a deep interest in current affairs which always makes conversations with her engaging. Cooking at sea on a sailing yacht is uniquely challenging. Not once did I hear Sarah complain which is testament to her character. I highly recommend Sarah. I can be contacted at should the need arise. James Barrett Captain"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do private cooking lessons cost?

You can take private cooking classes to have fun, to learn a new skill, to improve your health, to bond with your partner, to enjoy a playful first date or to have a unique birthday party experience. Nationally the average cost of private cooking lessons ranges between $100 and $150. Prices can vary, depending on where you live, the type of cooking class you’re taking, the ingredients the chef provides, and the reputation of the chef. Cooking classes with Anthony Bourdain will clearly cost more than classes with a local restaurant owner. The number of people in the class will also affect the cost, with group lessons often priced per person to account for the cost of ingredients. For example, for group lessons, a brunch workshop may cost an average of $70 per person, a steak dinner with sides could cost an average of $80-$85 per person, and a sushi lesson could cost an average of $100 per person. Ingredients play a major role in cost, as the chef will pre-purchase the food you will be working with. Weekday classes will usually cost less than weekend classes.
