Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.

Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

Amazingly delicious food. From appetizers to main dishes to desserts, I was delighted with not only the taste, but the lovely presentation. I highly recommend her for any occasion! I try to avoid sweets but could not resist hers. I especially like that she uses fresh, organic, savory ingredients. I don't know my way around the kitchen, but she makes everything look so easy, I want to take a cooking class with her.

Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.

Chef Beth was amazing in cooking a romantic and delicious Valentine's Day for me and my wife, who could not make it out this year because of our newborn. She addressed every detail, from working with me to put together a fully strict paleo meal that was perfect, including a raw apple pie, to setting up our dining room with candlelight and beautiful place settings. I cannot recommend her enough!

I have had the pleasure to know Rebekah for over 5 years now and have experienced her amazing vegan dishes. I also have attend many of her cooking classes that are not only tasty but teaches you about nutrition and how to make vegan dishes that look and taste so satisfying that you don’t even miss eating meat and best of all good for you! In addition, I have also hired her to cater my parties. Her professionalism and thought that goes into the menu planning was beyond my expectations. The presentation of the food was so delightful and delicious. Some of my favorite dishes are the spring rolls with house made peanut sauce, vegan crab cakes and her famous raw lasagna! I highly reccomend her for all your catering needs and to take her cooking lessons, you will not be disappointed!

Peggy C. I had tried Heather’s Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quiche—and knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on hand—as you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treat—very elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any we’ve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyone’s event or home.

    I have had Will's cooking on a numerous of different occasions. And I must say Will has a real talent in the kitchen! He can make almost anything from scratch or make things that you don't think will taste good turn out to taste wonderful! My favorite dish he made was a chicken dish with a load of different seasonings. Every bite I had was so moist and tasty (in a good way)! I would highly recommend to try Will's cooking, at least once, you would not be sorry and definitely be pleasantly surprised with how flavorful his dishes taste. :)

    Having had little experience cooking before working with Kim, I didn't know what to expect. But I couldn't be happier with how much I've learned so far. She has taught me to cook really healthy and some of the more indulgent stuff. I've learned specific dishes like homemade gnocchi with pesto and also skills that I can use to cook my own dishes. Knife skills, pan skills and most importantly for me flavor combinations. So even if I'm making a salad or sandwich at home I can take flavor combinations and make them my own. I would recommend her to anyone with any type of food or occasion.

        About

        We prep large amounts of food for parties, galas and events. Instead of working in a restaurant and making food to order, I prepare all dishes at once, course-by-course, so that everyone is served at the same time. I specialize in creating new and innovative dishes for celebrations or events, as well as knowing what will be possible to cook all at once. My knowledge of ingredients and how to use them in a creative way will serve you well. I have excellent technique when cutting and preparing food. Hand-eye coordination is one of my well-known and experienced skill. My team and I are the last line of defense to make sure each piece of food is safe, prepared correctly and tasty. I also work with the event hosts to create a menu, work with special requests and often cook in non-kitchen rooms or with mobile food prep stations, depending on where the event is being held. Great time management is guaranteed.

          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.
