A phenomenal cooking and "smart" grocery shopping experience with Chef Windle. Chef not only taught me the basics (particular things to look for when buying produce, the proper tools and pans to utilize when you begin the cooking process, the list goes on!) but also various techniques and recipes that I could use on a daily basis. He was patient (had to be because I am a beginner) and kind. I moved out of the area before I could get to the advanced lessons, but if I ever move back to Florida, he will be the first person I call to finesse my cooking skills once more. Thank you again Chef Windle.

I have enjoyed several cooking classes with Kelly! She is professional, knowledgable, and FUN. Her passion for cooking is evident and contagious. For a novice cook like me, I especially like that her technique, instruction, and recipes aren't too 'fancy' or difficult. (Unless you want it to be!) Chef Kelly is the best! Highly recommend!

Planned a surprise birthday dinner for mom! She loved everything! Alan brought and prepared everything and the best part was not even having to leave her home. Will be having him over again for cooking classes! Can't wait

Never had anything I didn't like! Portions are huge & shareable. I lived in Europe for several years & her eclairs are way better,hands down. If she offered cooking classes.....I'd be the first to sign up! =)

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.
