Alisa made everything I asked her to make and presented it beautifullly. She catered a High School graduation all night party held at the High School. She cooked the hot food for our diner on the premises. She had the appetizer platters premade and ready to go. She came early which I appreciated, and the food was made and served on time. I asked her to leave the leftovers for the kids and adult volunteers to graze on as the night went on and she did. We met at the school weeks before the event to coordinate where the cooking would be done. Also how and where things would be served. The quality of her work exceeded my expectations. I was personally nervous and wanted the diner I had set up for the kids to be perfect. Alisa helped make that happen. I would highly recommend Alisa as she was very detail oriented and did a magnificant job!

We hired Tim to do a private cooking class and dinner for a group of 10 at an airbnb in Tahoe. Tim let us choose from 3 different menus ahead of time and came very prepared. He brought all the equipment necessary and had backup plans in case if we didn't have a grill or, in our case, our grill was too small. He did arrive a bit late, but adjusted his setup and cooking to still make the time we targeted for dinner. The group really enjoyed the lesson with Tim. Tim was very friendly and engaging, and the food was delicious. His pricing was very affordable, and we gave a huge tip at the end because we really enjoyed his service.

Zach was excellent! We had a total of 6 private cooking lessons over the course of 4 months. Each time he came to our house for a couple hours as we created a wide variety of my favorite dishes from local restaurants in Sonoma. He taught us ways to modify a meal so you could have more variety with the same dish by just changing a few spices or ingredients, what to look for to know you're on the right track or how to "save a dish" if you veer off, and different techniques that were really useful. I'd highly recommend him!

I orders the greens to feed 25 people for a picnic. The greens were such a hit that a group of people attending the picnic was going around asking people “who made the greens!” When they got to me I said “I did”. Ha!ha! I’m not a cook! I couldn’t continue the pretense so I confessed that I had the catered by Chrysalis Catering. Thank you so much!! The greens with smoked turkey was the Belle of the Ball 👍🏼

    I have thoroughly and consistently enjoyed Laura's gourmet cooking over many years. At one point, I was on a very restricted diet, and Laura's cooking made the experience a delight. She has a remarkable facility with a variety of cuisines, with a special talent for Italian.

      I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about raw foods, BUT Chef Tena *truly* changed my mind (and body). She has an innate talent, not only with recipe creation, and food preparation, but also with making food *beautiful.* I didn't have any real favorites, since they were ALL over-the-top delicious! Her foods make by body SING and feel ALIVE!

      It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!

        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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
