Our family was looking for a chef to prepare weekly dinners. We were new to this and Sat was extremely helpful, flexible, and collaborative. He has prepared meals for us twice and were so pleased that he now comes regularly. He works with us to design a weekly menu to suit our family's needs and understands our particular eating habits. It had become challenging to juggle work, activities and cooking, and we grew tired of eating out. This service has allowed us to reduce the amount of stress in planning and preparing meals and decrease worry about eating healthy. We can now enjoy precious time with our children with a delicious home cooked meal.

My partner and I just had our first cooking/nutrition lesson with Daniella and we LOVE her!!! Learned how to grocery shop cheap, healthy, tasty and organic. Then had tons of yummy receipes for the week from marinating meat, making homemade dips/sauces to healthy/tasty snacks. She is so kind, easygoing, fun and knows her cooking stuff! :) We are signed up for more weekly cooking lessons and so happy we got connected with Daniella. Thank you!

Everything was amazing! Loved having Graham in our home cooking and helping us entertain friends. Food was delicious and we were so happy to have a clean kitchen at the end of the night. The perfect way to host and be able to enjoy at the same time.

My Family and I have enjoyed anniversary and holiday Dinners with Chef Albert for a few years now, his bubbly personality grasped your attention for the love of what food can be, we also loved the sous vide Turkey and his spicy infusion techniques, all his homemade ice cream for desserts and are prepared with fresh fruit and berries and is always delicious. it has been an inspiration to have him as part of our family and giving us the opportunity to expand our pallet & a new way of cooking.

Jon, and his assistant Danny, catered a sit down dinner for 24. The menu included several appetizers, salad, Filet Mignon and lobster with fingerling potatoes and veggies, and a homemade raspberry filled buttercream cake (as requested) for my husbands 70th birthday. Everything was perfect!!!!!! Exceeded our expectations. Not only was everything amazing but Jon and Danny couldn’t have been any nicer. Several of my guests are already arranging to use them for their upcoming events. We would definitely use them again. They made my husbands 70th so special. Could t be happier.

I have now taken two Indian cooking classes from Meenu Bhasin. In the first cooking class she made chicken korma, lentils and a yogurt side dish. These dishes were about a medium level of difficulty to prepare. Meenu was very thorough in explaining and showing each step of the cooking process. She also included a list of all the ingredients and spices, and where to purchase them. In the second class we made chicken tikka masala, saag paneer and rice with vegetables. Meenu is very good at teaching the preparation and cooking process of each dish. She goes over the ingredients and the entire process very carefully. She also leaves plenty of time for questions and discussion. I really enjoyed taking her classes and learned a lot about Indian cooking. I strongly recommend her as a cooking teacher/chef.

    I took a cooking class with ​Inbal​ ​and a​ small group of friends and was very satisfied by the experience. ​Inbal ​is extremely knowledgable and was very gracious and answered all of our silly questions. There was so much very basic info we didn't know! The biggest benefit for me was learning how to keep cooking simple. I tend to over think things and end up getting overwhelmed. Cooking isn't as scary anymore. I would definitely recommend her classes.

      Bryson is a very knowledgeable, and extensively friendly teacher who puts his students' learning as his highest priority. Happy to answer any questions you throw at him, it was eye-opening to see how much of a difference a few simple concepts can affect your cooking. His cooking is delicious, and by shock and awe, I was able to make some tasty morsels myself.

      I choose M & T dining 1 week ago. They are cooking individual healthy meals for my elderly parents, and larger dinners for my family of 5. The food is delivered fresh and exactly as we request. The prices are very good. I would highly recommend M & T!!!

        Chef Cregg cooked a private dinner at my house for myself and 13 guests. It was, in a word, amazing. Cregg was professional and gregarious, the food was immaculate, and the service was taut. I would highly recommend.

          I'm a bit smitten by the fact how easy and fun Nicholas makes cooking seem. Upon request, I asked him to prepare me a meal that is nutritious, yet low in calories but also easy to cook in order to fit into my busy schedule. He offered to provide beforehand all ingredients - which was much appreciated - as well as helpful hindsight during cooking what to look for when using fresh local goods and produce from farmer's markets. Overall it was a great experience meeting Nicholas, watching him cook and teaching me how to prepare a healthy meal, which collaborates well with my current diet and fitness lifestyle - definitely an experience worth trying out!.

          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.
