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.

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!

Had Chef Kim over to our Airbnb for a cooking lesson and it was excellent! She was very well prepared and even gave us print out recipes to take home. She was very detailed in her instructions and the food was delicious. She even helped us clean up after the meal. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a fancy dinner party or cooking class for a small group.

I had a wonderful cooking experience with Chef Rebekah. I have taken several cooking classes before but never a vegan cooking class. I learn some great techniques and use of different ingredients but I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the class. The settings was cozy and informal and she alternated learning/cooking with eating which differs from other classes. It felt more like a dinner with friends than a cooking class. Having said that, the three dishes we made were great and composed a nice Italian menu with Bruschetta, homemade pasta (vegan) and chocolate mousse. The casual ambiance and easy-to-make dishes made me really comfortable about the vegan experience. I have already made two of the dishes at home since the class. I even thought the vegan pasta tasted better than my egg and flour pasta I make at home. I really recommend this class and I personally look forward to attending another one with Chef Rebekah.

Stuart organized, prepped, cooked and plated all the food for our preschool auction. Not only was he timely, creative and a joy to work with, but his food was amazing! I've eaten his creations since and the quality is still the same. More so, he's calm, and extremely kind demeanor would make me go to him everytime for any catering services we may need in the future. Thanks Stuart!!

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.

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 lost 40 pounds since I have been eating Jordan's specially prepared meals for me. Food is very healthy and delicious, he was able to mix it up so there is a lot of variety of foods, at the same time they are all healthy. It would be impossible for me to cook like this by myself.

Heather was just amazing!!! I learned so much practical cooking knowledge and I’m so excited to take what I learned and implant the recipes into my everyday cooking. The class was a lot of fun and I love how she catered her instruction to what we wanted to learn and at the appropriate level. I would HIGHLY recommend her if you’re looking for a fun cooking class in a comfortable environment. Not only was the class fun, but we got to take home all the food (it was A LOT) and a bottle of wine!!

We were lucky to have Rene cook for our family of 4 as our personal chef when he lived in the San Francisco area. We have 2 picky eaters in our family, yet Rene's dinners were always a hit with everyone. Rene was professional and fast. He somehow made a gourmet meal in our little kitchen in a very short amount of time. The meat and fish were always perfectly cooked, never dry. Rene's food was fresh, healthy and delicious!

I first heard of Black Cat Culinary after attending a Halloween event Heather was hosting. After being impressed not just by the delicious food at the event she had cooked, but also by her very outgoing and friendly personality, I hired her for a dinner party I was hosting shortly after. I was not at all disappointed. She's a very talented, accommodating, knowledgeable chef with a fair price point and a vast assortment of dishes she's capable of cooking. She arrived in a timely manner, and did an exceptional job cleaning up after herself. Would absolutely hire again.

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.
