Our Cookery Demo with Vivian was an outstanding success and much enjoyed by all of us. Vivian was prompt, courteous and very knowledgable. I have enjoyed cooking for many years but picked up so many new tips in the 3 hours we had together. Our finished dinner menu was delicious and we all sat down together and ate which was a lovely way to finish our time together with Vivian. Would highly recommend her services and we will be booking another day during the Christmas Holidays.

Chef Bob was awesome! I called Bob to set up a private cooking lesson for my wife's birthday. He came to our home with everything needed for the lessons. He's very personable, funny, and great at what he does. I don't consider myself a chef, but he 'dumbed' everything down for us to understand and comprehend. Not only did he show us how to turn 1 dish into many, but he also gave us a bunch of neat time-saving tricks to use during the week, since we are both busy full-time workers. We'll definitely be hiring Chef Bob for our next party - his food is outstanding!

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!

My guests raved about her food, and had to "meet the chef"! Ann took all the pressure off me, and prepared an incredible spread of adult and child pleasing intricate appetizers and a variety of main dishes for an unknown number of guests for an open-house graduation party. Even my picky-eater daughter was impressed! I was able to trust her with my house lock codes, and she had the entire party set up, ready and waiting, when we arrived home from the graduation ceremony. It was so beautiful! She did all the set up, kept everything refilled, and the clean up. I've never had the wonderful experience of using a caterer before, and she went above and beyond my expectations. She made my daughter's special day even more so, because I could relax and enjoy my guests instead of stressing over cooking and serving. Plus, I am really enjoying all the leftovers... yum!!! I highly recommend her, and can't wait to throw another party and need her service again!

Darren is an outstanding businessman and a pleasure to work with. He got back to me quickly, gave me a very reasonable quote within 48 hours and was very personable answering a lot of questions i had. On the day of my event he showed up on time, did everything from set up, to cooking and even assisted my DJ lol....all my guests loved him and I have referred him to friends and family. Whether you are hosting a holiday party,work luncheon or just want someone else to do your cooking/catering for football or even a wedding call on Darren.

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!

Norma cooked for me for 6 months or longer while she was watching my dog when I was traveling. She is an excellent cook and I would use her again without hesitation. She was very flexible with my menus and I never had any issues.

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.

    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.
