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.

Over the years, my husband and I have eaten many dishes created and prepared by Chef Kevin of Rock Lobster Chefs. All were beautifully presented, made with the freshest ingredients, and delicious. Many were exceptional. At times they were customized (off menu) in order to accommodate my granddaughter's allergies. Kevin's work ethic, inspired dishes, and commitment to his craft equal excellence! He has never disappointed us.

I was looking for a chef because I'm super busy and I find cooking to be one more daunting thing I have to do each day. I thought about hiring a chef probably a year ago, but I feared it would be too expensive. I finally decided to go for it and posted my request on Thumbtack. Lisi responded almost immediately. I looked over her website and liked what I read so I gave her a call. I live a little further away than where she normally delivers and I'm a pescatarian (a vegetarian that eats seafood), but Lisi was willing to work with me and my needs. Ok, let's talk food-her food is amazing! Some of my faves are the Sesame Mahi, Vegetable Coconut Curry, Fennel and Carrots, Tuna and Bean Salad and the Zucchini Ratatouille. Lisi is always on time with her menu and deliveries and is super sweet. I highly recommend her! I'm so happy to have healthy, yummy meals delivered to me which cuts down on the amount of time I need to shop and clean up the kitchen. I was also pleasantly surprised how affordable it is!

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.

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.

Wow. Bert Woodson is the most AMAZING private chef around! I have had the opportunity to utilize Bert's services only twice, but I will never forget how awesome he was, and how delicious his food is. The first time I hired him to cook for a party 10 people (at my home) From the moment he arrived, it was like having a Michelin Chef in attendance. His appetizers, the entree, the sides and the desert - were each tastier than the first. Paired with excellent wine (Bert chose very well) every single person in attendance wanted MORE. The second time I had the pleasure of hiring him, the party was for 20 people, Bert shined just as bright. The pressure of the large group did not faze him, and yet again the crowd wanted MORE! Do not hesitate, Bert is your man!

Kippster Catering did a great job for my event. Not only did he show up on time and go out of his way to make sure all of my guests were happy, he left a clean space and even gave me a few recipes for the food he created so I can try to make them again later! I will definitely be using his services 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"

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.
