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.

Reviews for Los Altos cooking instructors
Thumbtack Customer
James was amazing! We had him over to the house for a team dinner after a long week at work. James and I worked ahead of time on the menu and had so much fun putting together the ideas. He gave me 5 different options including a souffle class, pasta class, fusion sushi, chopped style and more. We decided on Fusion Sushi as no one had ever done anything like it before. Together he taught us how to make sushi rice, cook all the ingredients for a variety of sushi and all the accompanying sauces as well. The food came out absolutely delicious and visually stunning as well. We all found James to be incredibly professional, super fun to be around, very patient and overall a great education and experience for all. I can't recommend him highly enough! We are already planning our next get together with James for a bunch of ladies to learn fresh, clean and healthy meals for a variety of options to cook on weekdays!
