Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

Chef Charley prepared a wonderful birthday meal in our kitchen. He came in and took over, setting the table, cooking and serving the courses and left the kitchen clean. Once he arrived we were able to relax and enjoy the evening. The food he prepared was delicious and artfully presented. We had a great experience.

My husband gave to me one 3-hours-class with Erika! More than a cooking class, I had the opportunity to talk and share ideas with someone that knows a lot about healthy food! That was great and exactly what I was looking for! During the class, I was able to raise all my doubts! Of course we prepared delicious recipes, but more important than this Erika shared all her knowledge! She gave me new ideas to improve my cooking and to prepare better (and delicious) food! Thank you, Erika! It was an amazing experience!

via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!

My friend and I took cooking classes from her. I can truly say that she was amazing. She taught us to make food we wanted to learn and it turned out amazing. She is a great teacher and makes it easy to apply what you learn from her and the things you learn in class to other recipes outside of what we did in class. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to cook.

Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.

Chef Flo was invited to my apartment for a surprise birthday dinner. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much - but boy, oh boy, were we in for a treat!! Florvil Chef Flo Valdez fed us the best poached shrimp salad (I've ever had), the best chicken florentine (I've ever had) and a chocolate mousse creme brulee (I've ever had)!!! From the crushing of the pistachios to the torching of the mousse, you can see first hand that Chef Flo pours his love into his cooking. It's an awesome experience all around - to witness the magic happen, to be served by him and to experience it first hand! It was truly an once in a lifetime opportunity. I would LOVE to host dinner parties, maybe even cooking classes with Chef Flo in the future. He left a lasting impression and even inspired us to become chefs ourselves. In fact, I tried replicating his chicken florentine the following day but I'll save that story for another time. If you are thinking about booking Chef Flo, there's nothing to think about, just do it. Not for a second will you regret it! Thank you Chef Flo for such an amazing experience. BON APPETITE!

Jennifer was prompt in her response to my inquiry about a holiday meal/cooking class, creative in coming up with solutions to meet our family member's dietary constraints, and very easy to work with in planning the menu. Her prices are very reasonable! The food was very good and we had fun watching and helping a bit with the preparation. We would recommend her.

Private Cooking class. Lauren was unbelievable re response time, energy and professionalism. We've yet to take the class but know if it's half the initial experience it will be well worth the money.

I had a wonderful cooking class with Chef Michael Molleda. We chose a menu and he sent me the recipes in advance. He taught me how to prepare a variety of dishes. He made it easy, fun and the food was delicious. We plan on hiring him again!!

I found Chef Robo (Rob) after searching online for in-home cooking lessons in the New York area. Rob got back to me quickly and we scheduled a class for the following weekend. On the day of the class, he met my husband and I at our house, where the three of us sat down and settled on a menu. Rob gave great guidance and plenty of options. We then went shopping together for ingredients at a local supermarket, where Rob gave advice on how to select for best quality. Once back home, Rob started with the basics we needed including knife skills and how best to prep one's work space. We both found Rob extremely easy to learn from and very patient with novices. He taught extremely useful tips and shortcuts throughout. By the end of four hours total, we had learned how to make an excellent holiday dinner including two appetizers, two mains, and two sides. We got so much out of the class, we took a second with Rob soon after! A week or so after the classes, when my husband and I were preparing the meal for our party, Rob answered several follow-up questions we texted to him. Then, Rob followed up with us to ask how the meal turned out. The food was a huge hit, everything from the apps through to the main meal really impressed our guests! Rob greatly raised our cooking abilities and confidence, and I highly recommend his classes.

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.
