Every party I have hosted,I never really got to enjoy. The crew at RUBUS SERVICES, gave me piece of mine, that I could stay out of the kitchen and be with my family and friends.Once I showed them around and what to do ,they took over. I had less stress,and they are such HAPPY PEOPLE! THE BEST WAIT STAFF EVER!

Chef Sternberg is a fantastic chef. The quality and the flavor of the food was excellent. He and his staff were extremely professional. They showed up on time and when they left you would have never known they were there. From start to finish my dinner party for 12 was seamless. Everyone including myself enjoy the evening. I would highly recommend them and will be using them for my future parties.

The owner was incredibly easy to coordinate with. We had planned our family meal well in advance. It was on time, easy to serve, easy to clean up(the employee who handled the delivery was organized and super nice.) They even sent flowers! The Thanksgiving turkey was moist and flavorable as were all of the sides and desserts. We have tried everything in the past on Thanksgiving and this was hands down the closest experience to homemade without being in the kitchen all day, that we have ever had! Was awesome! At the last minute, they were also nice enough to help me feed an office staff that ended up having to work. Amazing customer service and our employees loved it. The chef even delivered himself and my manager informed me that he was amazing too! My family and employees are already planning an event to try his ribs, that we heard are very tasty. Lots of Thanks to The Catering Group

If you want a chef who is able to accommodate your business or party theme, contact Chef Laura. We contacted her for an "Evening in Paris" at Jazzercise of Ft. Lauderdale - a surprise birthday party. Chef Laura decorated the table to the Paris theme. The guests had the best experience watching Chef Laura and her assistant prepare a variety of crepes to their specifications! And, they were so good! She brings everything, sets up before the guests arrived, and cleaned up discretely. A great experience. Debra/Jazzercise of Ft. Lauderdale.

Ms.Rossana and her husband welcomed my fiancé and I to their home for a cake tasting. She was very caring, very nice and professional. She made me feel so comfortable and asked questions to assure that she understood my vision. Her work is beautiful and exceeded my expectations. Everyone complimented me for the wedding cake, definitely worth every dime and by the way the cake we tasted were extremely exquisite. Super affordable, she will work with your budget and will give you 110 percent. Love , love absolutely love Ms. Rosanna, will definitely use her services again.

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

Let us start by saying WOW and AMAZING! We are so late writing this review and apologize for that... My husband and I were married back in January of 2016. As many of us that plan a wedding, this was our first time so we did not know what to expect. We planned everything ourselves, found the venue, found a caterer, photographer, Dj etc. We had a budget and it was quickly approaching the maximum. We heard weddings were expensive blah blah blah, but until you pay for one you may never know... We interviewed several Thumbtack bakers and taste tested their product. We met a lot of great candidates, but non of them "took the cake" like Claudia at "Cake it to the limit" Claudia is an artist and a visionary. Jose and I had an idea to incorporate our centerpiece (a silver metal round globe that was a candle holder and had an unusual design to illuminate light) We sent Claudia a picture of the centerpiece and asked her if she could incorporate it into her design. We did not see her idea until the day of, we were amazed! It was elegant, stunning and delicious! Our caterer, Laura, from Laura Ashley catering (also recommended) told us that they have never had a fondant cake that was so easily able to cut and serve. Needless to say we highly recommend this company and have already had the opportunity to recommend her to others. Claudia is professional and a delight to work with. Thankyou for making our day extra special!

I met Renee by referral, as I was planning a wedding for two dear friends. Her energy, and expertise were the perfect fit! As is the case with any formal affair, there were daily changes, and I'm sure I was making her crazy! However, she never waivered, and kept her focus and energy. The food was exceptional! We chose to have three themed 'food stations'... Asian, Latin, and Mediterranean. and it was an elegant white on white affair! The location was at the Brides' home, on the water, under a clear topped tent, with amazing lighting, and under a full moon! She also handled the creation of huge and stunning Ice Vases as centerpieces. Her attention to detail, and her follow up were critical, and she and her crew received a rousing applause from the wedding guests! I even managed to get her out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor, for "Because I'm Happy!" One additional note... I was not only the wedding planner, but I was also in the wedding party, so my nerves were on edge, being at the church, while things unfolded at the reception. We arrived in our limos to find everything moving right along as planned! Hope to work with her team again in the future. Everything was Absolutely Delish! Thank you, Renee!!

Kerry is an amazing pastry chef and beautiful person on the inside and out! I sent her the party invite and asked if she can match the design on the cake, add watercolor effect and nautical elements for my sister's baby shower. She matched the cake design perfectly and added her personal touch as well. It was tastefully done and came out elegant and way beyond my expectations! The cake was not only beautiful but also so tasty! Everyone were impressed and now two weeks later we still talk about it. Kerry was also professional and punctual. She kept communicating on the progress, asking questions, keeping me informed and delivered on time. Perfection!

Worth every penny! A well-educated professional, Jenny Parker has done a tremendous job working with me in every role from nutritional therapist to health coach, and best of all as a high quality chef. From our initial interview, it was apparent she is not only a professional subject matter expert - but very passionate about her work. Her thorough analysis of my existing diet and health goals, coupled with a personal desire to learn how to cook uncomplicated healthy meals made her a responsive and perfect match for my needs. Since becoming a client, I have consistently dropped weight while following her meal plans, while gaining an uncomplicated understanding of the science behind her recommendations. The results have been outstanding...its a great feeling when your friends and family can see the results of changes you are making in your life! In my opinion, Jenny's greatest strength comes from tailoring meals to my tastes, while ensuring each consists of the nutritional requirements needed in a healthy lifestyle. Her cooking lessons are easily to follow and are coupled with an easy- going demeanor that makes it fun to learn. Diverse and flavorful, I want to eat her food every day! Plus she is always on time and has been flexible to meet my schedule - which has changed several times since I became a client. I would highly recommend Jenny to anyone looking to understand a bit of the science behind nutrition while learning to cook tasty simple meals without the need for lengthy and hard-to-duplicate recipes. Compared to several others coaches and personal chefs I tried over the past several years, she truly knows her stuff and offers a value at any price point in the field! Definitely worth your time to check out her services.

Wonderful menus and excellent food! I especially like the fresh herbs and cooking wines/liquors with which Chef Alain cooks. It's true European cooking with pure, whole foods from an authentic French Chef! We like using Chef Alain for dinner parties with friends as well as quite dinners at home.

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.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
