On December 23, 2015 approximately 40 Earlimart Seniors participated in its annual Christmas Dinner. Chef Albert and his sous chef prepared a delicious and nutricious meal. The seniors were very pleased with the meal as many "mmm's" and "this is gooood" were heard from the people seated at the tables. Chef Albert prepared a very tender roastbeef, so tender it melted in your mouth.He also introduced our seniors to eating kale. Rounding out the meal was a crisp green salad with cranberries and walnuts, mashed potatoes and dessert. The chefs were very gracious with the seniors - talking and mingling with them and even taking pictures. Everyone left with a smile on their face and a delicious meal in their tummy! We are looking forward to our next meal with Chef Albert- who is innovative and still provides a very satisfying meal. Kudos Chef !

Great food, great service, great price! Loved all the food Chef Kat provided for our Roaring 20s Party. Everyone was raving about the dishes, especially the homemade canolis! You can tell the ingredients are quality and that extra effort and pride is taken with the cooking. Would recommend her to anyone!

My mother-in-law is in the late stages of battling bone marrow cancer and due to sick babies, I was unable to help out by bringing food. I spoke to Chef Kwasi and he put together 4 freezer meals and 1 fresh meal for her. My inlaws have loved everything he prepared for them. He prepared organic, nutritious meals that weren't overly spiced per her request. I couldn't be more please, thanks Chef...I'll be in touch soon for another round of delicious home cooked food.

This was the best idea I've ever had! Review is long over due however; we contacted Chef Bill for a 60th birthday party. There were only 4 guests including the guest of honor but, we wanted something you don't do every day. We spent the day wine tasting and who wants to make dinner after that?! Ew no! Chef Bill was great through the process. Very up front and professional. Amazing personality and we knew he was our guy. I have to say too, the food speaks for itself and is well worth the prices. There is truly a difference in a decent home cook and a chef!!! If I could just hire him full time at my residence, I would! I recommend every one give this a shot sometime and recommend Chef Bill to work with every time. Great food, punctual, great personality, easy to work worth, and well worth every penny!

Hunt & Gather prepared an amazing meal for my bachelorette dinner. They were very professional, friendly, organized and just overall a pleasure to be around. I can't even begin to describe how delicious the food was. Every single dish was beautifully plated and so thought out. The chef talked through all the ingredients and how each dish was prepared which made it interactive and fun for all the ladies. This group of ladies know their food and they were all in food heaven. I would recommend these guys to all my friends.

If you are seeking an addition to your domestic staff, with minimum staff presence I plan, shop, prepare, cook, serve and clean up your kitchen on a weekly or monthly basis. I am an experienced professional chef, former restaurant owner, private club manager with California Serve Safe certificate. I do weekly, monthly or contract of one time meals. I can come into your home and prepare special-diet, high-quality meals that you and/or your guests and family just have to heat from your own oven and microwave, with complete labeling, instructions and freshness rotations. Chilled items, snacks and all accompaniments are tagged and dated to go along with your selections.Usually it takes about 7-12 hours per week to shop, prepare, cook, set up storage and rotation of your selected premium meals. I have great references, and I have cooked, served and prepared meals and events for clients of high esteem, CEOs, mayors, congressmen and women, presidents and even the Pope! I have a minimum service charge of $500.00 on all one time, small events. My business is structured to make any and all meals as fresh as possible. I am available for any last minute instructions by phone or email. Basic labor costs, food costs, service charges are negotiated in advance. Along with your budget and menu selections, dietary, special needs and any other requirements are all influenced by your determinations. Imagine your family meals, pre selected, cooked and organized, all at your finger tips. I do all your shopping, rotate all foods for freshness, leave all prepared foods labeled with basic heating instructions, then clean up. Then I disappear until the next cycle of meals is required. I work closely with you on what you like, how large or small your portions are, where you like to have me shop at, how many meals and for how many days your meals are needed. Its like having your own chef at your beck and call! Consultation appointments are required prior to all commitments.

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.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
