Connie did an amazing cooking class for my daughter's ninth birthday! She was an excellent communicator beforehand, super prepared when she arrived, and was able to tailor the lesson to just the right level. Plus the food was amazing! Now I want to take one of her wine classes for myself, highly recommend:-)

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!

Recently, I had the culinary pleasure to experience Chef Tim’s cooking as a Personal Chef. We were a party of six “foodies” who wanted a break from preparing our own meal, while still enjoying the ambiance and casual feel of our hostesses’ home and kitchen. Chef Tim met with our hostess and together planned every detail of the evening. We began our meal with Bourbon-Rubbed Smoked Salmon Toast Points. This was followed be an Asian Tuna Tartare with Tortilla Crisps. The main course of Herb Braised Short Ribs, Vegetables and Truffle Potato Puree was greeted by one of our friends with : “Oh this is a put your fork down taste!” Each bite was a taste experience not to be forgotten. We finished our meal with Fruit Turnovers with a Velvet White Chocolate Mousse. Collectively, we all thoroughly enjoyed Chef’s Tim’s talent and detail to every aspect of the evening. We would love to repeat the experience in the future and highly recommend Chef Tim as your personal chef at your next special occasion.

I have been working with Pam Vagnieres and her Nutri-Physique Nutrition and Exercise programs for several years. I found Pam through her healthy cooking classes, they are fantastic! You learn to cook healthy, amazing meals, while getting the nutritional information about the foods you eat via lecture and handouts, including lots of fabulous recipes. Pam literally spoon feeds you the best and latest nutritional information available in a way that is interesting, fun and critical if you want to be on a healthy path. You learn so much about what you should and shouldn't eat, it will truly change your life! She also offers private nutrition consultations and exercise programs that are tailored to each individual's needs. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone who is seeking the most current information on nutrition, help preparing healthy, delicious meals, and nutrition and exercise programs all leading to living a healthier way of life!

I hired Tim to help plan a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday. He was able to help construct an appropriate menu, not only for the two of us, but also for our kids. The 5 course meal he prepared for us was amazing. Tim is a true professional when it comes to creating dishes and pairings (he constructed a sweet potato soup and included pumpkin seed oil and toasted quinoa for an amazing flavor). The food was perfectly cooked ans seasoned and the platings were very elegant. The evening was great and he even brought my wife flowers and presented us with our own custom menu to capture the special evening. We would absolutely hire Tim again for any future cooking/catering needs.

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!

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.

Trisha's services are amazing! She can cook anything and make it really tasty. She's been cooking for us on a weekly basis for over 3 years. My 3- year old also loves her. Her strength lies in her ability to cater to all the various food needs & requests that may exist within a family. My husband & I both have unique tastes when it comes to food. I eat spicy food and he likes your basic American cuisine. Trisha has been able to cater to both our needs for the last 3 years. She has also cooked healthy, tasty gluten-free meals for us when we requested it Try her out, She won't disappoint.

    I had Edwin & his team cater a private, themed event of small courses based around 4 different tarot cards. I barely even had to explain anything, & Edwin took it upon himself to research our theme. The courses exactly embodied the components of the tarot cards. The food was delicious, and his orchestration was seamless! I will be working with Edwin on future projects and my business team and I are beyond satisfied - we feel excited and blessed. Thank you Edwin!

    I have nothing but the highest praise for Carol and her cooking! She has been preparing meals for my grandmother for over a year, and the benefit to her has been enormous -- has allowed her to maintain her independent lifestyle (at 96!), and the gluten-free whole foods diet that Carol provides has had a positive impact on her digestion and overall health. Carol tailors her meals to my grandmother's tastes and numerous dietary restrictions, and always has something new and creative to offer. She goes above and beyond with her kindness and caring -- making sure my Grandmother is stocked on essentials and fresh produce, and communicating back to me any and all concerns regarding my grandmother's diet and health. Carol is quite literally a lifesaver!

    Megan has been so very helpful and encouraging as I walk this health journey. Megan has been working with me for about six months to reduce and eliminate inflammation from several years of life-altering autoimmune diseases. She is very knowledgeable in so many aspects of health, diet, cooking, recipes, and is able, willing and available to assist when problems arise. It is truly a blessing to have Megan working with me.

    Had an amazing time with Jay. I have done a few cooking classes with him and have learned more in the few classes than I have in ten years! I enjoyed the fact that any dish I love to eat he would teach me to create. I have always been a simple cook at home, but he helped me learn what cooking really is! I highly suggest his service!

      I have had the pleasure of having Veronica's cooking many times. Most recently, Veronica catered my bridal shower. The food was not only delicious- but the detail that went into making each dish beautiful was incredibly impressive. The guests that attended the shower raved about the food for weeks after the event. Every dish Veronica makes, she puts a ton of love in and it really is reflected in the final product. I cannot recommend her enough.

      We had a little different experience with Jeni in that we hired her to cook for us for a year after I'd been diagnosed with Lyme. She was fabulous and her food was excellent. The menus were varied, original and fresh. She saved our lives. The portions were generous and we often had leftovers. Jeni has baked for us as well on other occasions, also excellent. She's a dream to work with, has a lot of great ideas and is more than reasonable price wise. As you can see by our star rating, we highly recommend her for any cooking/baking needs you may have.

      David made cooking fun! While I love to eat, I don't care to cook. He made it enjoyable and interesting. We created several delicious dishes that met my dietary needs, including Paleo. He offers true value. I highly recommend him.

      Katy is wonderful to work with! I have had two private cooking lessons with her already! She balances a fun, laid back, and productive environment during her lessons. Whether you are looking to learn cooking basics, master an Eggs Benedict, or cook for a crowd; Katy is your girl!

      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.
