After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.

I hired “The Dancing Palate” for my boyfriend’s birthday. I wanted to make his birthday special and memorable. Instead of going out to a restaurant, the restaurant came to us! In my first meeting with Chef Paul, he took his time to explain to me the current menu, services and clean up, customizing a menu to my liking, pricing, etc. I have to say that Chef Paul delivered better than I expected! He was prompt to my home, dinner was served on time, did a cooking demonstration and every single course was absolutely delicious! My boyfriend was really impressed! We had the jalapeno bites and meatballs with homemade barbecue pineapple sauce, the braised beef short ribs on a bed of cauliflower and stuff chicken sausage with pasta. For dessert, the chocolate cheesecake with sauce and whipped cream on the side with a mint as a garnish. I highly recommend "The Dancing Palate" to everyone! I am so glad that found them via Thumbtack. The “Dancing Palate” was professional, kind, and very entertaining. I will request their services in the near future.

I hired Chef Robyn Almodovar at first to cater my daughter's 1st birthday. Her staff was very prompt and organized. They had total control of the party which was great for me. We had passed appetizers as well as mini stations set up around my house and the food was to die for. Fresh, vibrant, fun, and most of all delicious! Since than we have hired Chef Robyn for a personal cooking lesson party...let me tell you how much fun that was, and small dinner parties. My family and I consider Chef Robyn as our personal chef....she just doesn't know it yet.

Their food was amazing. I don't usually eat some ingredients in some of the dishes but I wanted to taste the food the way they made it. I'm glad I did!

An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!

Moira was amazing! She did a interactive cooking lesson for myself and my partner as a valentine's day surprise. We had oysters and mignonette to start, fresh halibut with fresh truffle grated over the top paired with celery root puree and endive, and a divine flour-less chocolate cake for dessert. She worked around our complicated dietary restrictions without blinking an eye and cleaned everything up before she left. I happily recommend her!

    My class used PCS events for our graduation party this past Friday and it turned out amazing! From the first meeting to the tasting to the actual event everything was perfect! Since it was a class event we were on a budget and Barbara was able to work with us and rearrange a few things so our budget would work out for the type of event we had in mind. We gave Barbara all of our ideas and when we arrived to the event after our grad ceremony we were shocked. Everything was perfectly how we imagined it! Barbara and her staff were very friendly and cooperative to all of our needs and I could not have asked for a better turn out! I will most definitely be using PCS events again in the future.

      Megan catered an event that I had for my friends and customers during the Christmas Season this past year. Over 150 guests attended. Everything was perfect and I was relieved that the one thing I did not have to worry about was the food. Everyone raved about the appetizers and sweets that were served at her suggestion. She was there early to deliver and prepare the food and made sure everything was ready to serve when people started arriving. I would recommend Megan for any job in the food industry. She is dependable and an exceptional cook.

      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.
