I was requesting quotes for my sons 5th grade banquet IN VERY SHORT NOTICE. Out of 50, I CHOSE BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE!!!!! I needed to cater to 250+ guests. The vendors I had lined up for this event would not have been able to beat the cost, the timing, accommodating such a crowd on such short notice...NOR do it effortlessly with quality, FLAVOR and efficiency the ways I was catered to by THIS company. Immediately they were on my phone offering suggestions, and arranging to meet to HELP plan the menu as well offer any additional hand in any and every way for this event. Their time was very precious and they offered so much they didn't have to (that was so personal and comforting). On the day of the banquet, they were very much prepared, on time, organized, well dressed, extremely professional and SKILLED to the MAX! The dishes were AMAZING! Hot, fresh, flavorful, well made and well presented!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and so much more than I ever expected!! QUALITY! QUALITY! QUALITY! And can I say QUALITY! This catering company BEATS ALL I have ever seen, tasted, experienced and known!! From BBQ to fine dining THEY LITERALLY DO IT ALL AND DO IT VERY VERY WELL!!!!! THEY ARE AWESOME AND ACCOMMODATE ANY AND EVERY EVENT TYPE AND VENUE!!! I've been in the event world in Orlando for 15 years and my Father for 40! WE WERE BOTH VERY IMPRESSED AND BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND THEM!!! By far THE MOST efficient, personal, accommodating, cost effective, punctual, reasonable and DELICIOUS ((SOOOO DELICIOUS)) I enjoyed the company of these fine ladies and appreciated the extra hand. The LOVE for what this company does is defined in their great service, THE FLAVOR, THE QUALITY, the presentation and above all BEING ONE OF A KIND!!! NOT MANY CATERING COMPANIES CAN SAY THAT -- BUT THIS ONE CAN AND OWNS IT!!!! Any type of food dishes, ANY TYPE OF GATHERING.... ANY NUMBER OF GUESTS, from a small crowd (even a dinner for 2) to 300 people/PLUS...THIS COMPANY DEFIES ALL I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! I AM SO GRATEFUL AND HONORED TO HAVE THEM AS A PERMANENT "GO-TO" VENDOR!!!! I RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY AND ALL OCCASIONS!!! WHEN I SAY THEY COOK IT ALL--THEY DO IT ALL---THEY MAKE IT ALL SO PERSONAL--- THE FOOD IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 100% X 100% SATISFIED!!!! I WILL BE PROMOTING THEM TO EVERYONE I KNOW AND EVERYONE I DON'T KNOW! WATCH OUT CATERING WORLD, THIS COMPANY IS THE REAL DEAL AND TOP NOTCH!!!!! THEIR PRICES ARE OUTSTANDING AND UNBEATABLE! THEIR DISHES ARE DIVINE AND HOMEMADE! THEIR SERVICE IS ONE OF A KIND! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

I sincerely wish I could give him 10 stars! I started working with Chef Garyn about 6 months prior to my event. I live in Maryland and came to Florida with 12 other people to celebrate my son 5th birthday! I hired Chef Garyn to cook us dinner for his party and as a farewell and thank you to our guest! From the moment I contacted him he was prompt in his replies and so very understanding of my many changes due to the difficulty of planning a party from many states away. He took all stress off of me and came up with the menu which he allowed me to change if I wanted and ensured he stayed in close contact. The day of the party he showed up to our vacation home on time and was by far the nicest person ever and so professional. Literally my entire family loved him!! They are still talking about him and how we all wish we could have taken him home with us! The food was cooked to absolute perfection as well as the dessert! None of us eat carrots on a regular basis but we all went back for seconds, even my nephew who is an extremely picky eater. He shopped, cooked, served, and cleaned up which by far exceeded my expectations! The shopping was major to me because after traveling 15 hours, going grocery shopping was the last thing I wanted to do but he took care of EVERYTHING! All of my family are still talking about him and how we can't wait to return next year to have him again! In 5 hours he became like apart of our family! I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a delicious meal with a personable, professional, and all around awesome chef!!!!

Me Gusta Gustavo showed on time, was very professional, very accommodating even for my somewhat picky guests. His food was so delicious even the pickiest tried it all and loved it all. He even did the dishes. So much food great value more reasonable than most might think for a personal chef to come to your home and cook for you. He even does meal planning even for the strictest diet regimes. I would hire him again without question!!!

Oprah is truly talented. She is a phenomenal chef and impressed me with the first bite of a three-course meal. We would use her again in a heartbeat. She helped me pull off a surprise Birthday/Valentine's dinner for my fiancé. She had all the tools and ingredients for a meal at a 5-star restaurant but it was at our home. She served us, cooked for us, and cleaned up the entire kitchen for us. The kitchen was cleaner after the meal then it was when she started cooking! She was sweet, and kind hearted. I cannot wait to have her over for a dinner party and share her talents with others!

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.
