I'm so happy we found Chef Mumsie.Chef Mumsie invited my husband and I to a tasting at her private kitchen, and I was impressed with how personable and friendly she and her staff was. The food was incredible, and we left really happy. I reported the good news to my boss, and we decided to use Chef Mumsie for a board meeting with my company. We made several changes day before changes, and Chef Mumsie was very accommodating and had such a great attitude about everything I asked. She came down to view our set up early on, and she gave me the times she would be here. She was accessible and responsive, and things were set up on time. The food was great, and I heard great reviews from a picky crowd. At the end of the day, I got a pat on the back and a "great job!" for choosing them for our meeting. There will be many more meetings to come! Thanks so much! We will be using chef Mumise Again for our Corporate luncheon in the Orange County area

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.

If you are in Redlands, CA for any reason you must absolutely visit the Cooking Block cooking school. We had such a fun time with friends we were visiting. They were very excited to take us there as they had attended many of the cooking classes offered before. We had not planned on doing an activity like this on our stay but are very glad that we did. We participated in a French cooking class that was paired with wines for each course. The instructor was very knowledgeable and an excellent chef. Not only were we treated to excellent food and wine, we actually learned a lot about the regions that they hailed from. We met the owner of this fine establishment. His name was John and he was very hand's on with the entire night. Probably one of the reasons it was such a great experience. He made us feel very welcome and was genuinely glad that we all came. It was very apparent why this business was so successful. Many of the other guests were return customers and could not say enough about how much fun these events were. This event was sold out. Thank you to our great friends and to Cooking Block for a most wonderful experience. Cheers and continued success and excellence!

Outstanding catering service. Jeeva has provided for us consistently well for a competitive price. She knows how to make other kinds of food besides Indian (they are good too, but there is still a slight Indian flavor--touch of fusion cuisine, but our guests consistently like her cooking). We will continue to look forward to working with her!

I took 3 cooking classes with chef Karla in 2014 and they were all outanding. The 5 weeks Professional Pastry course were fantastic and very comprehensive. I have greatly improved my baking skills and have achieved consistent results from Chef Karla's good tips and correct techniques. The Appetizers and Truffles classes were also very good. Chef Karla is a very talented culinary and pastry chef. More importantly, she insures that all students have the hand-on experience and have fun while creating beautiful dishes.

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.

Verified review

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.

    I have had nothing but awesome experiences working with chef Ollie George. She is creative and passionate and it really shows in the wonderful recipes she teaches. I have had the pleasure of taking a series of classes from her and recently took a fun cooking class with my 2 daughters, making the most delicious salmon ceviche! I used to be lost in the kitchen but now have the confidence to create beautiful meals for my family and actually enjoy cooking! Thanks Ollie!

      About

      I have been inspired to enlighten other people to use food as a tool in order to improve upon their condition after experiencing my own health and wellness successes through this Cooking for Cancer approach. We have to take an active role in maintaining a healthy body, and that is what I firmly believe in. We can no longer afford to relinquish the responsibility for our health to the medical industry. To preserve and keep our body healthy is our duty. We can no longer keep on poisoning our bodies with foods that are loaded with preservatives and pesticides, which is why I now offer Cooking for Cancer classes because I believe in it, especially when our health is compromised. I follow the 80/20 rule -- 80% raw and 20% cooked, as well as 80% alkaline and 20% acidic food. In my cooking classes, I provide tips and guidelines on how to formulate and maintain a satisfying and healthy diet in a creative and simple way.

      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.
