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.

Jenny coordinated and organized a personal cooking class for my friends and I for a Private Bachelorette Party. This was everything we expected and more. The customer service, lessons and attention to detail was priceless and to top it all off, the food was delicious. Her willingness to accommodate our constant change was much appreciated and made the entire process easy. I definitely recommend Chef Jenny for any occasion.

Jay Minzer has been my go-to caterer and culinary adviser for two decades. I have been to his public cooking classes, including one alongside Chef Paul Prudhomme; and he has been in my home for both private cooking lessons and formal dinner parties too many times to count. Jay has even catered my kids' birthday parties every few years, from ages 5 to 20. Jay is reliable, always ready with a grin and a joke, and will put a menu together that will fit the occasion to a tee.

I loved the experience of cooking alongside my girlfriend and having Ana’s expertise guide us in the process made for a tasty dinner. Ana made it a fun, comfortable and learning experience trying out new dishes. I would gladly do it all over again as soon as possible. Zestcipes’ cooking class is the best thing my girlfriend and I have done together recently and would greatly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn and have a great date night at home!

Catherine is an amazing personal chef. She is punctual and professional. She prepared exquisite healthy and nutritious meals that allowed me to jumpstart my metabolism. I have lost a total of 65lbs since I started working with Chef Cat! If you want a first class personal chef who can prepare Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Pescetarian, or regular meals....then Chef Cat is the correct choice. Oh, by the way, if you want a great tasting desert on your "cheat day", she is also an amazing pastry chef😋!

      My experience with AJ went fantastically. He was readily available to speak and offer tips to plan and make the night go off perfectly. We had very high expectations when we hired AJ and he exceeded them. We hired him to do an in-home cooking class for me and my wife to celebrate my wife's birthday. His experience and professionalism was apparent in every aspect. The experience was fantastic and the food was even better. AJ walked us through and showed us the proper technique and explained what and how each course was made. After the preparation, AJ plated the food the way they would at any fantastic restaurant and served us the food we had made. I would highly recommend him - and already have to many close friends. Would definitely call him again when the situation arises.

      I used chef Tracy of summer rain cafe for a brunch I had the day after my daughters wedding. From the menu she created to fit my budget, to the presentation of the food everything was outstanding. Everything she made was homemade. I will definetly use chef Tracy at my next event and I highly recommend Tracy and summer rain cafe.

      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.
