On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

Chef Shelley (Living Veg) did an amazing job cooking delicious vegan meals for our Hawaii Yoga Retreat. She explained each dish in detail, was very knowledgable about the foods, and incorporated heart and love into her cooking. I was highly impressed with her Ayurvedic meals and her spin on a Vegan Luau, and that she satiated the appetites of even our non-vegan retreaters. It was an absolute pleasure working with Living Veg and would highly recommend Chef Shelley as your private chef!!! She is wonderful!

Chef Nancy did a series of healthy culinary classes in various homes including one that I hosted in our home. The classes were interactive, about 4 hours long and very informative as well as fun. Nancy asked each hostess what main dish they were interested in learning to cook or what cooking technique they wanted to learn. She then created a full menu around our request. Nancy bought all the groceries fresh the day of the class and came fully prepared bringing her cooking equipment and utensils to our homes. Everyone loved the food and Nancy was warm and friendly and most everyone learned something new. Highly recommend Chef Nancy.

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.

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!

Few chefs have as wide a level of knowledge about not just the food but also wine accompaniments. Ed has been a "foodie" since about 30 years before the term came into wide usage!! He has excellent sources for all his ingredients and his preparations are thorough and well-thought out. If you want to feature particular types of cuisine or particular wines, he will match his menu to any specifications you might have. Not quite sure why he's never had his own restaurant, although cooking for a living is not quite the same as cooking for the love of cooking.

I am a big fan of Zainab's food. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to taste her vegan dish because there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to vegan or vegetarian food. She made some sweet carrots, smashed potatoes, imitation chicken, and pasta salad! It was so delicious and I was in awe that the chicken was not made from actual animal meat. I definitely recommend "Another Side of Soul" to anyone who wants a tasty and healthy dish!

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!

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.

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+++++!!!

    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!!

    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.

      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.
