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.

I enjoyed working with Michael in our Strength Group. His group classes were well planned, fun and effective. He offered good alternative exercises for those of us with joint issues. He is always positive and encouraging. I had the same experience when working with him individually. He also provided information on food and dieting, including the effects different types of food have on your body, as well as suggestions on ways to approach a balanced diet. In working with Michael, I found him to be both fun and knowledgeable as well as professional – a great person to work with!

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!

Working with Chef Matthew was fantastic from beginning to end. He is very professional and willing to work with different dietary restrictions and changing timelines. Our dinner was lovely and delicious. Everyone at the party was very happy and no one had the stress of hosting or cooking!

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.

Connor was so wonderful! We hired him to teach a cooking class at a bridal shower, and he was so much fun! He taught us how to make two delicious treats and helped make the party entertaining and fun! I will hire him again!! He took time to make sure we had the perfect menu and answered all of my questions leading up to the event, he made us feel like we were his only client (though I know he is busy) The girls are still talking about the party.

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!

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.

I've hired Dana twice to cook special lunches for our construction workers on the job site. Dana made the whole process as easy as pie. She delivered a full compliment of fresh, delicious entees, side dishes, condiments, plates,the whole package. It all arrived steaming hot, on time and fit our tight budget. The food disappeared in minutes and every single worker thanked us and said it was fantastic. It all should have cost twice that much. We couldn't believe it, so we did it again. We will hire Well Seasoned Personal Chef for anything that requires cooking in the future and you should too. You will not be disappointed.

Participated in a class and made Indian food. It has always been an interest of mine due to my world travels to learn cuisine from some of my destinations. The evening was not only fun but well organized and kept us all on our toes! I will be back!

    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.

      About

      My name is Celeste Sutton and I was born and raised in Broomfield, Colorado. I have always loved being in the kitchen, watching my grandmothers and my mom create amazing meals. My love for homemade comfort food came from them. As I grew I always enjoyed cooking colorful and flavorful food but never thought of doing it for a living. I use the freshest ingredients that I can find and pride myself on educating people so they feel confident and comfortable in the kitchen!

        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.
