Maggie did an outstanding job period. She did everything that I wanted in a surprise dinner for my girlfriend. From sneeking her into the house for the surprise, to cooking everything to perfection at my request. She was friendly to where my gf and I were able to have a romantic dinner and we were able to enjoy the conversations with one another. The evening was perfect and thanks to Maggie for such a memorible night!!

Thomas came to our house to give my 14-year old daughter and I a private cooking lesson. He brought all the ingredients and did a wonderful job showing us techniques and giving us information on organic vegetables and grass-fed meat. We will be booking him again soon to continue to encourage my daughter to learn how to cook healthy and efficient meals. Thank you, Thomas! We can't wait for our next lesson! ~Cathryn M.

We ordered Blue Apron for about 6 months and granted the recipes and food were fresh and delicious, the preparation and cleanup was really time consuming. Too much for couples who work full time. I found Nancy Sparrow's meal service on line and after two weeks, we are madly in love with the meals and customer service. Just heat and eat and throw your plate and silverware in the dishwasher. My Foodie husband gives Sparrow Kitchen 10 thumbs up, as do I. It's soooo much better and easier than Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc. worth every penny!

Chef Diane, I just wanted to email you to let you know that my son participated in a week long summer camp with you many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. When it came time for my son to decide what to do after graduating from high school in May of 2012, he thought long and hard about it. I reminded him of how much he enjoyed your cooking classes and that sparked his interest again. Well, my son, now 18 years old, just graduated from Lincoln Culinary Institute in Columbia, MD! He works at Clyde's Tower Oaks Lodge in Rockville, MD and has just gotten his first entree on the menu there, Sauteed Duck Breast with duck confit, spaghetti squash, scrambled duck egg, fried tofu, bean sprouts, carrots, scallions, peanuts and "pad thai" sauce (pictures included). He has also had 2 appetizers on the menu previously, Barcat Oyster "Po' Boy" Crostini and Sauteed Chicken Livers. I just wanted you to know what an influence your kids camp/classes had on my son. Thank you, JoAnne K.

Chef Kerry came and did a private cooking lesson for 2 of us. He was happy to help with knife skills, which I specifically requested, and came prepared with handouts and meal ideas that would allow us to practice. The food we cooked was great and lasted us a whole week!

We hired Yaffa for a small gathering (about 35 people) after a memorial service. When we returned from the service, everything was ready. Food and drink professionally and artistically set up just waiting for our guests. Her staff was attentive, but unobtrusive. Trays seemed to refill themselves and there always appeared to be a bountiful supply. The food was delightful, a fresh and enticing array of Mediterranean delicacies. Yaffa's are traditional recipes, not some generic, Americanized imitation. Her dishes are full of flavor and adventure. Not your garden variety catered menus. I recommend the Hummus--it's the best in town. Yaffa brings her personal attention to every event, as if she were cooking for her own family.

It was a pleasure to meet and work with Danny. He had a smile on his face the entire time - you can tell he truly loves what he does. He photographed a workout class we did, and made all of the ladies feel very comfortable as they were being photographed. He is really engaged and takes control of the shoot (for the better!). The photos came out great!

I can't tell you what a wonderful experience we had with Callan. I hired her to come cook dinner for 9 girls (bachelorette party) this past Saturday night. We had many dietary restrictions and Callan provided many different options that all sounds yummy. I've attached pictures of her heirloom tomato salad, sweet potato gnocchi, roasted butternut squash and salted caramel brownies. Great presentation and even better flavor! Callan is kind, professional and provides incredible quality in her work. I would highly recommend her for any type of party up to 100 people!

Chef April puts her heart & soul into everything she makes. I have been lucky enough to try many things made by Chef Apil's loving hands, and they have all been absolutely delicious!! She creates a flavorful masterpiece in your mouth with every bite of her cooking and you can totally taste the difference in richness and flavor with all she creates. I can tell by tasting her food that she is completely passionate about what she creates and her presentation of her food is exceptional!! I would highly recommend her amazing cooking to anyone who is planning an event, party, wedding, birthday or just a special weekend treat. Chef April has skills and she knows how to use them!!

Tony of GB Catering made this experience so easy for us from the planning stage to the end. He provided several suggestions and we decided to go with a Mexican theme and chose the taco bar. He provided us with several menu items to choose from for appetizers, dinner and desserts. He also made an amazing sangria with many fresh fruits. The contract was sent timely and was simple and easy to understand and everything was so professional. He arrived exactly when he said he would be there and set everything up a beautiful serving table. He made sure everything was to temperature and remained so throughout the party. There was extra food in case we had additional guests. The food was so yummy and packed with flavor. The chicken and beef were uniquely seasoned and the salsa and guacamole were so good . The dessert flan looked so lovely and the flavor was amazing. We will definitely use GB for our next gathering and are considering trying the barbecue.

Kat was my personal yoga instructor and chef for almost a year before her departure from Milwaukee to Colorado. Let me say first, there is not a day that goes by without me missing her services. Kat is kind, compassionate and incredibly talented. Her yoga services allowed me as a true beginner to enjoy and feel the benefits of yoga. She was patient with me and a great teacher of positions that allowed my body to stretch and release. I am a stage two diabetic and the yoga had a profound effect upon my condition for the good. After learning that Kat had head chef talents, I asked her to come twice a week to my home and prepare meals for myself and my son. The meal plans were excellent and the food, well, there are few fine restaurants that could compete. Kat was very fair with the economics of the work as well. It made for pleasant meals when coming home from work. My son continues to ask where is she and can she come back to Milwaukee for a time to come and prepare food. It is critical in any review that one have trust, confidence and successful communication. Kat gets an A+ from me in all regards. You will be lucky and fortunate to have here skills. My suggestion is do not hesitate. We enjoyed her immensely and miss her yoga and cooking talents. Thanks for listening.

Not only is Jerry punctual and friendly, he is a master of his craft. Creative dishes with unique takes on modern cuisine. If you’re looking for a genuine dining experience and more, I highly recommend Chef Marano.

    I've used Stephanie's cooking services many times and each time I'm amazed by her creativity in the kitchen. She comes up with dishes that are simple yet bursting with flavor. She's also an amazing teacher. She's patient and always offers constructive feedback. My cooking skills have increased greatly all because of Stephanie. Before I could barley boil water and now I'm confident in cooking steak! I would highly recommend Chef Stephanie as a private chef and/or for cooking lessons.

      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.
