Fast, professional and Dorrenda can cook!!! She made 4 bulk meals for me all of which I'd made myself half a dozen times but I can say without a doubt she surpassed mine. She has TCT... Taste, she understands how to use herbs and spices to add flavor instead of salt and butter. Clean, the old adage clean as you go...she was the personification of it!! Time (did I mention this lady is fast!) I will not embarrass myself with how long it would have taken me to do the same but she did it in a fraction of the time! I've had cooks in the past come and cook for me and they were friendly but not very skilled or skilled but the personality of sandpaper. Dorrenda has both and more, I will hire her again and have actually... already set our next appointment!

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!

Sasha with Body & Soul Food did a fabulous job with my personal cooking class in my kitchen. I set this class up as a date with my girl friend and she enjoyed it very much. Sasha was very well prepared and it was such a joy having her demonstrated and instructing us on the dishes we made. Our class was schedule around lunch time so we enjoyed the dishes as our lunch. It was such a perfect date. Good food and fun. I highly recommend this experience to people wanting to do something different as a date. Sasha is the one to call to make it happen.

Jennifer was everything I hoped for and more than I expected!! I hired her to conduct a family cooking class for Mother's Day. She was able to accommodate my last-minute request and tailored the meal to our preferences. She is professional, patient (I have teenage brothers), and a very talented chef. She shared a lot of fun tips & tricks of the trade and because she brought all of the ingredients & tools we were able to pull off the perfect surprise! An awesome group activity where everybody participates--Hire her if you get the chance!!

I have witnessed firsthand Stephanie's vibrant personality and the positive and upbeat way in which she teaches and shares her cooking knowledge with her classes as well as on a personal level. I have taken personal cooking classes from Stephanie, worked alongside her in some very intense presentation situations, and been witness to her genius as she conducts a cooking class for over 50 people. She has a dynamic personality and a contagious giggle - and a flair for culinary genius. She has a way of breaking down the most complex recipie into simple steps that almost anyone can follow.

The food was outstanding! The burgers were cooked perfect, the fries were delicious and I loved all the different aioli sauce options. The restaurant is fantastic but their catering definitely steps things up!

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.
