Debra L. says, "Chef Michael prepared all food, five courses, for our New Year’s Eve party. The menu he developed after speaking with me, was excellent, elegant, and beautifully presented on a range of plates. It was also delicious, filling and provided special tastes/ touches that had our guests asking him about how it was prepared, special ingredients, etc. It was absolutely a hit with everyone. Additionally, Chef Michael came to our home beforehand to look at the space we were converting to serve a sit down dinner and advise me about how to fit in the tables and chairs to accommodate the crowd. Did I mention that Michael researched where to rent the chairs and tables, he arranged their rental and came early the day of the party to help me move furniture and set up? Again, I can’t say enough about how accommodating he is. After the event I found my kitchen all clean and ready for the next day and the few leftovers were packed away in my dishes and stored in the refrigerator. You will, no doubt, be impressed as I was with Chef Michael’s professional and friendly manner. He knows food and party management. He also has told me he would be happy to come back for small dinners. I highly recommend Chef Michael and will call upon him again to co- pilot my entertaining of family and friends."See more

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.

Reviews for Sacramento cooking instructors
Amira G.
Boris is fantastic and incredibly patient. I purchased a private cooking class for my husband as a Christmas gift. I am a vegan and my husband eats fish. Boris worked on a menu that worked for both of us and was so patient when I asked to change the menu and date a few times. We learned how to cut vegetables properly, sharpen knives and made sushi, hand rolls, tuna tartar, miso soup and a tofu dish. Boris is very knowledgeable and gave a beautiful history behind each dish. This was a perfect night and my husband loved his gift. Based off my experience, I would hire Boris again and I absolutely recommend him for private cooking classes.
