Chef Tiffanie was fabulous! She exceeded all our expectations! We had our rehearsal lunch catered in lunch baskets; it was packed beautifully and with care. Our guests were nothing but impressed with the quality of the food and the creativity of the chef! Cheers to you Chef Tiffanie!

Kathy and Jeff Paradise are a full-package for the busy full-time working bride. They handle the busy details from catering to reception rentals, setup and decor in any style you desire. We opted for a sit down table service wedding reception on Saturday, May 18, 2013 for approximately 100 guests. Kathy and Jeff offer many pleasing menu choices ranging from comfort food to many items for even the most sophisticated palate. We settled on our selections and details that suited our style wedding reception. The venue we selected for our wedding reception provided very little lead time to set-up other than the morning of the wedding. This problem was easily solved by Kathy and her team who set up all the tables, chairs, and decor. This leaves the bride with nothing to worry about and allowed me to focus on getting ready for the wedding. The details were impressive. Guests enjoyed the h'orderves and happy hour while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. The appetizer table had a beautiful presentation, and when we arrived we had our own appetizer platter ready our head table. Our guests had their choice of Lasagna with Meatballs, or Chicken Picatta. The Caesar salad was made with a delicious homemade dressing. A candy & coffee station was set up for guests to enjoy after dinner. Everything Kathy and Jeff make is from scratch and the layers of flavor in everything you taste is amazing. It is evident that cooking is something they are passionate about. Kathy has high expectations of herself and those she works with, which provides great results. Our wedding was the event everyone was talking about! We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and many inquired about having Kathy and Jeff cater their future wedding receptions. Kathy & Jeff Paradise come highly recommended for catering weddings, anniversary parties, or special events.

We hosted a brunch for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday and Janet and her partner were awesome. They were able to work in a tony kitchen, and produced a first class brunch.

    Rebecca and I played some email tag setting things up but the extra time was well worth it as the cooking class she conducted for my folks was really fun and both learned quite a bit from Rebecca, and will likely be cooking a lot more pastries as a result. I haven't used thumbtack previously but i can say that when searching for a particular custom service in a remote location, the platform was very helpful and I am glad I found a great match in Chef Wilson.

    Food was very good. Tex Mex theme. Mark was very professional, on time and the kitchen was left as it was when he came. Price was very reasonable.

    My husband and I were treated to a special anniversary dinner compliments of my daughter. I spoke to Chef Jay ahead of time and placed our order. He arrived on time, cooked our meal, served it, cleaned up and left. I can't say enough how delicious it all was. What a special treat. We had the eggplant rollatinit, caprese salad and stuffed flounder with crabmeat. It was like a bit of heaven on earth. I would highly recommend him and hopefully can get my girlfriends together for a cooking class with him. Thank you Chef Jay for a memorable evening.

    We hired Kipp for our parents 75th birthday party. We had a group of 18 people and everyone raved about the experience. Kipp was very easy to work with and had great suggestions for the food choices associated with the size of our group. The baked brie appetizer was especially popular, but the highlight was the rodizio grill with all of the delicious meat that was cooked to perfection! Would definitely recommend Kipp and would use him again.

    Gwendolyn Howard not only provides the best in local, healthy products when she cooks and caters, but she is deeply committed to others in our community. In her business, and in her personal life, Gwen "gets" the important connection between businesses and non-profits. Her support of the Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida has helped us immeasurably articulate the message that "Recovery is Possible"

    Brian and the entire team at Crave Culinaire helped make my event one my family will never forget. We hired Crave to cook a private meal for our family at home, followed by a catered party on New Year's Eve. The food quality and presentation greatly exceeded our expectations, as did the professionalism of the staff. My family is difficult to please when it comes to food, and we all agreed, the meal prepared by Crave Culinare was one of the best we have had in Naples, Florida.

    Chris made hors d'oeuvres and desserts for my daughter's engagement party and then catered her bridal showered. My daughter had definite ideas on certain styles of cooking she liked and Chris was more than pleased and willing to accommodate. Not only is her food absolutely delicious, she is a pleasure to work with, she will go out of her way to make sure everything is perfect. The guests raved about her food and her as an individual. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

      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.
