Sandra, Your Private Chef

Sandra and her staff were professional, courteous and attentive. She set up a gourmet style dinner for 50 guests for my daughter's birthday party. I was impressed with the quality and presentation of her food and so were all my guests. What I really liked about Sandra was her integrity to not only make sure every detail was perfect but also keeping me updated every step of the way and going out of her way to provide more than she promised. For example, she secured a pastry chef for my daughter's birthday cupcakes as an added service. She also brought extra staff to insure there were servers available to refill drinks and help serve guests (which was above and beyond my expectations). I didn't have to do a thing. She came in, set up, tore down, cleaned up and even packaged leftovers for us to keep. Sandra also made alternative dishes for my guests who requested it without hesitation. I would recommend her for any event big or small as she clearly is well connected in the area. By far the best private chef in the valley.

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!!

My cooking class with Hasnah exceeded my expectations. She shed a whole new light on what it is to cook. This is my first time using thumbtack and I took a risk that was definitely worth it. Her knowledge of the kitchen and culinary world are extremely extensive. To be honest, I was intimidated at first but she relays the lesson in such a comfortable relatable environment that it felt like we were just two friends cooking and creating something together. The experience has made me want to explore my kitchen in ways I had never thought, and allowed me to narrow down and focus on what it is I am really interested in. So many things to learn! So many fun and creative culinary adventures to be had. Thank you so much. I left inspired and excited. :)

I took a private boot camp cooking class with Tiffani a few weeks ago. I can't say enough amazing things about her! She taught me so much in a short period of time and gave me lots of confidence to start cooking on my own. Tiffani is an outstanding cooking instructor!

Verified review

Normally, I wouldn't give 5 stars so easily, but Chef Tess is impressive not only as a chef, but in character as well. I took a rather large group of kids and a couple of adults to one of her cooking classes and was AMAZED at her ability to engage and control the group. Several of the children have ADHD, and yet with Stephanie's warmth, laughter and sincerity, that group was all hers. She was professional, canny, and witty, and we were laughing with her almost the entire time. The quality of the instruction as well as the food went above and beyond my expectations. As a lover and connoisseur of healthy and REAL food, Chef Tess is definitely gifted and ready to teach and impress.

i have had the pleasure of tasting Andrea's food both at her house as well as at my house. In both cases the food was cooked from scratch, even when she came to my house, and her food was truly an unbelievable experience. Ever since i had the pleasure of tasting the "midnight cooks" cooking, resturants have never been the same. Now I simply make up excuses to see her husband, Darrell, in hopes that i get treated to another dinner. This is precisely why i say "i miss her dogs" but really "i miss Andrea's cooking"

I wanted to have some friends over for Dinner but did not want to do the cooking. Nutrition intuition saved the day! Amber made us roasted chicken and mashed chipotle sweet potatoes – it was all delicious. It was fun having her over and it felt like a friend in the kitchen as we talked about life and food while she prepped our dinner. We will definitely be hiring Amber again in the future, especially around the holidays!

Chef Shannon was a part of our family for over three years. She provided foods that fit our growing needs which included feeding toddlers up to adults that were macro friendly, paleo and the like. She created recipes and when I saw a recipe we wanted to try she did that as well. She not only provided food and cooked in our kitchen once a week, but also catered dozens of our parties ranging from 20 to over 85 people. Always energetic, reliable and consistent our food needs were met by Chef Shannon.

    I requested a vegan cooking class as a gift for several of my friends. Amber consolidated all the food restrictions and preferences of my guests and developed a fabulous menu. She came fully prepared and provided enough interaction to keep all the ladies busy and engaged. She and her assistant were a delight and quite knowledgeable. They cleaned up before they left, I would highly recommend Amber.

    Elyse's cooking was absolutely delicious. Her passion for food came through in her creative menu pairings and flavorful dishes. Her ability to wisk together everyday things in my cupboard into a culinary masterpiece was truly inspiring. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a chef on any occasion.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
