I have been the beneficiary of Mr. Bloomhuff's cooking on numerous occasions. Whether he is catering a large group in a public venue, or serving a simple lunch, dinner or large party in a private home, everything I have had is fabulous. He is a versatile "world cuisine" chef; able to update and put his own unique stamp on classics from India, Thailand, North Africa and the Middle East. A consummate professional, he knows his way around a commercial kitchen and food and beverage logistics, and has the management skills to handle a large team, make it look easy, and carry off major events with outstanding results and no drama.

My husband and I did our research for our sons graduation and found Jordan's Creative Catering Concepts to be one of the best. Jeff was so personable and his delicious copper river salmon was tops! He grilled charcoal and wood in front of all the guests and they loved it! Couldn't thank him and crew enough for his wonderful service, delicious food and will use his services again!

Chef Sarena was fantastic! She arrived early, well presented with all the necessary cooking supplies and food. She went above and beyond our request for a traditional Mexican Puerto Nuevo lobster dinner. The shrimp ceviche and tortilla soup were incredible. Without notice, she was able to even whip up a last minute, delicious dessert that left all of us in awe. The meal and experience was wonderful. Thank you Sarena- we will definitely be calling you again! -Jason and Wendy

I used Jacob for a special dinner event celebrating a very special person. Mr. Perez worked with me to create a special Menu for my guests, I had meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans all in attendance, and he made sure there was something for everyone. His professionalism, skills, and service was impeccable. His mouth watering Filet Mignon with red wine demi glace reduction, whipped potatoes & sautéed vegetables is nothing short of amazing-My absolute favorite! I highly recommend Chef Perez, and can not rave enough how spectacular his food & service is, and how beautiful the presentation was. I exclusively use Chef Perez for all of my events.

Doug is an amazing trainer, motivator, and all around guy. I started with him about 7 weeks ago when I was finally ready to make a change. He put me on a nutrition plan that worked for me (others I failed miserably at), he stayed on top of motivating me to come to the gym regularly. When I train with him he doesn't just go through the motions he teaches me why we do certain things and what they do for my body, so I can work out on my own as well. I'm proud to say I've lost 22 lbs in 7 weeks working with Doug at least twice a week and 2-3 times a week on my own thanks to the knowledge he has given me. Doug has helped me change my life for the better and start a healthier lifestyle for good! If you train with Doug you won't be disappointed!!!

I chose TFMG without any references or experience with them. I took a chance on using them for my 50th birthday party. I strictly based it on his website information, but mostly my conversation with Ricardo on the phone. He and his staff were absolutely fabulous!! The food was delicious and everything was set up and cleaned up very professionally. All my guests raved about the tasty food and the service. I would definitely use TFMG again !

Carol is a knowledgeable and passionate coach and teacher who greatly assisted my husband and I to clear out unhealthy food by learning what ingredients were beneficial for us. Our energy and health improved so much I hired Carol to do a workshop for the junior high kids I worked with. She was so creative, our poverty students did an scavenger hunt at a local grocery store, where they learned to read product labels and found foods they could afford that was healthy. Carol also made an entire lunch for the students with all their favorites and all organic. They loved it and shared their learning with their parents. This type of coaching and teaching is invaluable to anyone who wants to have a wonderful quality of life by eating foods that support their individual bodies. Hire Carol Grieve to be your food coach and your life will be richer for it!

Stephanie cooked for a bachelorette party of 13 girls. She worked with me prior to ensure the menu included all of the bride's favorite foods and accounted for allergies and dietary restrictions. She was on time, fun to hang with while cooking and most importantly her food was delicious!

Our evening for a business meeting with Chef Ashley was excellent. The variety of food was perfect, the attention to detail along with the freshness of the ingredients was wonderful, the quantities were ample. Her layout and her organization was a great addition, I left to her decision the entire meal. Since we were in the desert area I wanted her to highlight some of the wonderful ingredients from the Coachella Valley, she came through perfectly. The timing between different foods was good, you never felt full, just comfortable. Being in the food industry myself, I felt the passion that chef Ashley has for her cooking she was delightful. Great value, very professional service. Meal: Starters -Fresh figs with bacon and Chile -Salad wedges with buttermilk, grapefruit and mixed seeds Dinner Campanelle pasta with swordfish Desert Honey baked figs with vanilla bean ice cream

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.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
