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.

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!

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.

The private cooking class was a Father's Day gift for my husband who let me say "can't cook". Chef Christophe was very responsive and listen to what type of experience I was looking to give my husband and Chef Christophe DELIVERED!!!!! He made my husband feel very comfortable and a very positive experience. My husband is now looking forward to possibly learning and cooking more. And the added plus is Chef Christophe help him to prepare and cook us a delicious meal. Thank you Chef Christophe! We look forward to our next cooking encounter with you.

Kaitlynd has been great to work with! After providing a menu the prior week from which we pick and choose our meals, she cooks and drops off a weeks worth of dinner meals each Monday. She is very attuned to our needs as a family, and has been careful about accounting for allergies and food preferences; she has been accommodating us with a Mediterranean diet. Everything she makes is not only nutritious and healthy, but delicious as well. I have been so impressed with her work ethic and attention to detail, as well as her incredible ability as a chef.

    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.
