Chef Marcel provided a wonderful evening by being at my wife's birthday party and cooking for our guests. His menu he created for our party was wonderful even though it he was on as tight budget. Everyone was amazed by his cooking!

We hired Pam for our wedding, and I have to say that we were extremely impressed with the service and quality of her catering. Our wedding took place in August of 2016, and our family members are still raving about the BBQ! We got the ribs, chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, and every kind of cheese Mac-n-cheese. It was delicious, and her style of cooking provided us with a feeling of “home.” Pam offered many alternatives to best fit our needs, and was accommodating throughout the entire process. She does everything in her power to ensure that she has made your event memorable. Her and her staff definitely went above and beyond, and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who asks (or doesn’t ask, for that matter).

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!

I hired Laura to teach a series of cooking classes at the school where I am the Director. She is an amazing teacher along with being an incredible chef. My students were constantly asking when Chef Laura would be coming back. Laura came to each session, enthusiastic and ready to cook and teach. She is really creative, and was able to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables from our school garden! The lessons ranged from soups to sweet baked goods. My favorite cooking lesson included home made pasta with a delicious tomato sauce. I am looking forward to working with her again.

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.

His knowledge was amazing. He was able to breakdown, in an easy to understand way, the science, and the art of cooking. What was also great was that he didn't just teach recipes, he taught the different principles of cooking and because of that I can create great, delicious dishes from scratch, not matter what I have in the fridge. My mind was blown when we covered salads. I didn't know there was another side of salads that made it more enticing and more high class. (see picture below) Overall, Chef Know-It-All is an amazing, artful chef that has the ability to make others fall in love with cooking. He's patient, insightful, and heavily invested in the student's progress and success. Every question I had, he answered. And every hurdle I had, he helped me get over it. Oh and did I mention it was fun! He taught me some flair tricks that the professionals use to make cooking fancy. Now I'm flipping sauces, cooking with big fires, and sprinkling flourishes left and right! I simply can't enough. 5 out of 5 stars for me.

Jessica made a great job at our party, cooking Asian vegan food, 5 small dishes for 30 people. Everybody loved the food, it was simply delicious.We were very impressed by her, and many guest wanted her info. The dessert was to die for, a coconut cream tart. Jessica was very professional to work with - she stepped in here with her prepped food and finished it in our kitchen - calm and efficient. She is very well organized, had planned perfectly ahead and she was sweet and nice to have around at the party.She came with great ideas for the party that wasn't about the food too. We look forward to having her as our personal chef again and can highly recommend her to anyone with those needs!

Vegan cooking has never been as fabulous as when Porsche is the one serving up cruelty free dishes. She makes healthy - usually soy free - meals for my boss Russell Simmons and myself on the regular. Our guests always leave our events raving about the taste and marveling at how satisfying it is without flesh and dairy. She is the best of the best!

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!

Working with Chef James Buckingham was a blast. He was extremely communicative and flexible with his menu options. My husband and I wanted backyard barbecue for our wedding reception and Oneida’s Cuisine did a wonderful job. Being from North Carolina, I am a little picky about my BBQ but I couldn’t believe how tender and flavorful the ribs and chicken were. Oneida’s clearly put a lot of time and patience into cooking their proteins. Chef James also cooked up some perfect cornbread, potato salad, and macaroni and cheese. The sides could’ve carried the meal on their own! There was also fresh fruit and a delicious hearty salad made for our vegan guests. Our friends and family members were raving about the meal all night. Thank you Chef James!

Had my first at-home lesson today. Michelle is a kind, polite, well-humored chef who teaches well. The meal we prepared together was simply delicious. Didn't know I had it in me but Michelle did! Salivating in anticipation of my next cooking lesson with her next week.

Sabrina's Latin Kitchen

My husband and I practice a vegan diet. We both love Vegan Paella which is hard to find in vegetarian and Spanish restaurants here and abroad. When I found out that Sabrina combines both Vegan and Spanish Cuisines, I immediately scheduled a culinary class with her. Prior to her arrival we discussed what type of rice, vegetables and spices I should have on hand. Sabrina accompanied me to the Spanish store to purchase the Paella pan as well. Within the first few minutes of ingredients sautéing in the pan, my olfactory and visual senses were awakened with a jolt! The smell and look of the creation in progress got better as the prep continued. I wanted to taste a little bit quite often and had to sneak a spoon into the pan like a sleuth intruder. Sabrina was very patient answering all my questions and injected humor into the class. We laughed and it was a joyous experience all around. As she explained ‘It’s all in the Soffrito’. The Paella was the best I’ve ever eaten and feel confident that I can make it myself. I highly recommend Sabrina’s cooking class for anyone who has a hankering for Spanish food.

    My food allergies are too many to count. On top of allergies, I don't eat meat. I had spent my life eating bland, boring food... always either tasteless or with a weird taste! :( Until I found the I CAN'T EAT ANYTHING CHEF! She is not only the nicest person I have ever met; she also delivers the best food I have ever tasted straight to my door!!! I have NO IDEA how she does it :) How she manages to make so many different delicious meals specifically tailored to my diet and my needs. She is the best cook ever!!! Her vegan tacos are the best!!! And I love her barbecued tofu, her ingenious fruit, nut and vegi salads and her mouth-watering desserts! The best part? None of her food makes me sick! I can eat flavors again and feel like the luckiest gal in the world to have discovered this gem of a chef! Highly recommended. A+++++!!!

    Teresa took time to understand my needs and what I wanted to get out of my experience with her. She also spent a lot of time personalizing our day together and being thoughtful about how to schedule and plan it all out so that I got the most out of it. I learned a ton of tips since we went through the entire process, from picking out my ingredients through preparation. Teresa was willing to answer any question (no matter how silly) I had along the process and adjust to any changes I requested. Teresa is really knowledgable and experienced, as was evident throughout my time with her. I would 100%, no doubt, hire Teresa for many more cooking experiences/classes in the future. I definitely feel more confident in the kitchen after spending a day with her.

    Christina clearly has a passion for nourishing people with healing healthy foods. It is very inspiring to see her work her magic in the kitchen as she seems to have an endless supply of energy! From juicing and smoothies to baked goods, she had full spectrum experience. Raw or cooked her food is vegan with love!

    About

    I cook for flavor first, so everyone tries my food just loves it, even when I prepare vegan dishes for meat eaters, they dig right in. That's because I've been cooking vegan food for 20 years for myself, and insist on eating the highest quality and best tasting food. That's what I share with others, and besides, I put ove in it. You can taste that too! I never use recipes, nor is it all in my head, I just utilize ingrained principles of good taste and how to combine foods and spices and it comes out great every time!

      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.
