He contacted me immediately. We are going to do cooking classes in February. We've spoken on the phone and he is so friendly. He has stayed in touch with me and he deserves 10 stars!!!!

Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

From start to finish, it was truly a pleasure to work with Alisa and her top notch team at Passionate Plates. We appreciated her flexibility and cooperation during the planning stages to prepare food for 60 guests at our wedding in Sonoma on Sept. 17, 2016. I am especially grateful for finding such a high quality caterer such as Alisa's Passionate Plates via the Thumbtack website after our caterer had to back out just two months before our wedding due to medical reasons. Foremost, we had nothing but rave reviews from our wedding guests for the high quality of the food, including choices for seafood lovers, steak, chicken, vegetarians and wonderful side dishes. On the big day, her team arrived at the wedding venue to prepare everything fresh and perfectly on schedule based on the timing of the service for a lunch reception. We opted for a more simple buffet style and this worked out extremely well for us. In addition, her team did a superb job with general execution in both the high quality of the food, clearing the tables and leaving the venue's kitchen and table settings sparkling. I have rated Passionate Plates "5 stars" but would give them higher, if possible! Rest assured, you will not regret working with Alisa and her first class team at Passionate Plate.

Dining at Graceful Kitchen, Grace Zhou’s pop-up restaurant, was a unique and delightful experience. Grace planned a series of original and authentic courses, taking into account vegetarian preferences, which were cooked and served with style. The setting was immaculately prepared, courses arrived within a reasonable time, and guests were entertained with music and conversation. Regulars are only sorry that she moved to another country!

Graham cooked for me at 10 year wedding anniversary which was outdoors at a private location in Stinson Beach on October 24, 2015. I met with Graham maybe a month before my event. I was very specific about everything I wanted for my special day. We had a few kids and a total of about 50 people so I wanted to make sure that he was a good fit for me and my guest of families. I did not want a fancy foie gras chef although I think Graham is in that league. I wanted someone who would cook a good meal and I wanted to be satisfied at the end of the day. Graham met with me and my mom and made us a sample from my Mediterranean menu. After spending a little time with Graham, I knew I wanted to hire him. He was charming and professional and his food was delicious. At my party he helped make my event go smoothly. He made 3 different salads, grilled chicken, salmon and beef kabobs for my lunch party. It was a beautiful day and my guest were so happy with the meal and also found Graham to be very charming! He is gem! Thank you so much Graham! I hope we can have you cook for us again in the future.

Albert, from the start, was warm and professional. This man knows his way around the kitchen! He and his lovely wife, Antonia, whipped up the most amazing vegetarian dinner for a family party (12 adults, 6 kids). Even the meat-lovers were shocked to learn that vegetarian meals were delectable. :) He was on time, clean/quick, and presented some gorgeous dishes. I'm hiring him for all future parties; he left my kitchen spotless. :) He is warm, personable, and the list goes on. Thank you, Albert and Antonia, for an awesome night.

Angela made our family a dinner. We are not gluten free or vegetarian normally, so it's an endorsement when our kids eat vegetarian. We had a cauliflower soup, a couple of different vegetarian items like stuffed mushrooms for the main meal and several dessert items. It was all delicious, but the things that were especially amazing were the fresh tomatoe tarts (gluten free-couldn't tell) and these strawberry and cream tartlets (different crust from the tomato.) We left the table fat and happy! I have also had her cream filled chocolate cupcakes on another occasion which were also spectacular.

James was great to work with for the appetizer menu for a cocktail party at my home for 25 guests. He was accomodating and creative when it came to coming up with vegetarian alternatives for my guests was well. His beef, chicken, and crab cake appetizerz were gobbled up quickly leading me to think the portions could have been slightly more generous. It was a pleasure working with James and will call upon him again.

So glad we found Dan's company on this website. From the first point of contact he was completely on top of everything. At first we wanted to have a cooking class, but after talking with him about the other types of experiences he could offer, we went with a demonstration/dinner party which was so much better than an actual class. We went with the Cotogna inspired menu and got to learn just as much, while spending time with our friends drinking wine. Perfect night!

I have now taken two Indian cooking classes from Meenu Bhasin. In the first cooking class she made chicken korma, lentils and a yogurt side dish. These dishes were about a medium level of difficulty to prepare. Meenu was very thorough in explaining and showing each step of the cooking process. She also included a list of all the ingredients and spices, and where to purchase them. In the second class we made chicken tikka masala, saag paneer and rice with vegetables. Meenu is very good at teaching the preparation and cooking process of each dish. She goes over the ingredients and the entire process very carefully. She also leaves plenty of time for questions and discussion. I really enjoyed taking her classes and learned a lot about Indian cooking. I strongly recommend her as a cooking teacher/chef.

We absolutely loved our french cooking lesson with Mashav! She created a custom menu for the class based on our suggestions and fresh local ingredients. She walked us through each step carefully and answered all of our questions. The final result -- 4 made-from-scratch french dishes -- was phenomenal. To top it all off, Mashav was very organized and easy to plan the class with.

I contacted Veena to see if I could arrange a private cooking class for my Mom as a Mother's day gift. I asked whether she could accommodate me (a vegetarian) and my mom (passionate meat eater) and Veena said absolutely. I sent Veena a handful of my Mom's favorite recipes (including a more obscure and apparently heavily British dish called Lamb Pasanda) and she created a meal plan that included everything and more. We showed up and Veena greeted us warmly. Her kind energy and passion for her food and culture were clear. She never made us feel like we were asking silly questions and kept the experience light and fun. She was basically willing to go into as much detail or as little detail as we wanted. It was a very affordable class considering it was a 3 hour long private sessions for the two of us. We even went home with tons of leftovers, a spice kit (black cardamom smells amazing), and recipes for our dishes! Veena took pictures of our experience and offered her help for any future cooking questions we had. She said she could always offer a suggestion for a substitution (ex. if we needed a dairy free version) or questions on grocery stores to find certain ingredients. Thank you Veena!!! Quick summary PROS: very adaptable, super warm and kind energy, affordable, fun, not intimidating, yummy food. CONS: scheduling was a little difficult because there was no calendar or online service to use. It was through email so we did have some communication mishaps initially—no big deal really.

Marisa has provided catering for several parties of mine, from intimate fine dining (herb and garlic prime rib roast) to parties of 50+ (build your own taco bar). Everytime she is spot on with the menus, tailoring it for different audiences. I just give her a general idea and she makes the magic happen! She has always been professional, prompt and friendly. Her food is delicious and I highly recommend all the meals she has made for me. I have had almost everything from vegetarian meals and salads to bbq and desserts. Very talented chef!

    I took a cooking class with ​Inbal​ ​and a​ small group of friends and was very satisfied by the experience. ​Inbal ​is extremely knowledgable and was very gracious and answered all of our silly questions. There was so much very basic info we didn't know! The biggest benefit for me was learning how to keep cooking simple. I tend to over think things and end up getting overwhelmed. Cooking isn't as scary anymore. I would definitely recommend her classes.

    Alyson is a wonderful cook! We find that we are eating better, taking better care of ourselves, and finding time for the things we love to do because Alyson is cooking for us! Her food is delicious and she is really flexible in accommodating our changing appetites and dietary needs - paleo, veggie, meat, etc. She is a pleasure to have in our home and is thoughtful and attentive. Alyson is kind and is truly interested in making the best food possible! We are grateful for her and highly recommend her.

    Had a VERY delicious and nutritious pre - race meal: pasta, salad, and fruit. There was also ribs which I didn't eat since I'm vegetarian. Others who ate them just raved about how delicious they were and went back for 2nds & 3rds. There wasn't much food left at the end of the evening. Lorenzo can cook for me any time.

    Norwood created an awesome themed birthday dinner for 13 people at our place. The entire process was smooth, creative and right on target...we ended up with a 'Vegetarian Asian Street Food Tapas' theme complete with a Thai Boxer cocktail. He was professional, clean and a pleasure to work with together. I'd highly recommend him for any home event! Our guests haven't stopped sending their compliments on an amazing evening...

    I had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to host a dinner party at my home for them. All my guests were picky eaters in one way or another, so I hired Chef John to prepare a customized meal to suit the tastes of all my guests. Chef John worked with me to come up with a full menu of appetizers, a salad, main dishes and desserts. Everything was amazing and each guest was thrilled to have their own custom made meal. The dessert was tiramisu which, I have to say, was the best I have ever had (and I have had LOTS of tiramisu in my life). Chef John cooked in my kitchen, cleaned up everything and left my kitchen spotless. Chef John is definitely my "go to" private chef from now on!

      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.
