Brian has come into my classroom three times to make Mac and Cheese for my students. The first time he came in I was concerned about how could he keep the students focused and interested in his cooking. He was excellent. He attended class wearing his chef jacket and brought his knives. Once Brian had started to prepare the mac and cheese, he took time to explain to the students the 5 main sauces. He continually fielded questions from the students. The questions ranged from "What is the strangest food you have ever prepared?" to "How much do you make?" Brian was able to keep their interest especially when he showed them how he chopped food. He showed the students the various knives that he uses when preparing food. Brian finished his presentation by serving the students a generous helping of Mac and Cheese. On his last visit, Brian was challenged to prepare his dish without using gluten. Brian was able to do this and still provide a delicious meal. Brian is a very knowledgeable chef. He has an easy going personality that makes your experience enjoyable. The pride he shows in his craft is inspiring.

    I hired Sarah for my wedding weekend. She and her crew were absolutely phenomenal! They came and stayed with us the whole weekend. They served our rehearsal dinner, breakfast, and the wedding dinner. We spoke months before the wedding and she really took the time to understand the types of food we wanted, our concerns, and what we wanted the experience to be like for ourselves and our guests. We gave her a budget that she was able to keep well under, but still give us everything we wanted! Every step of the process couldn't have gone any better. Sarah was a great listener, very calm, kind, and knowledgeable. Her food was top notch as well as her servers! I can't think of how it could have been any better. I was really lucky to have had her. All of my guests raved about the food. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a calm, kind, and stressfree process with amazing food. I have recommended her to all of my friends and wouldn't hesitate to use her in the future.

    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.
