Chef Megan Alig is so professional, friendly, and client-oriented! We hired her for an in-home cooking demo. for a group of about 20 women. Everyone absolutely loved her and kept raving about how wonderful she was. She is very flexible and willing to adjust to your needs and personal preference. Her energy and enthusiasm for cooking with simple, healthy ingredients is contagious. I highly recommend using Chef Megan/Creative Cuisine for a special event or other culinary need.

We had a change in plans and Charlene was more than accommodating to move the catering service to a residence instead. The food was good - outstanding potato salad and the deserts were killer !!! The two types of barbecue was a great mix of options and much appreciated. Charlene came out in a horrible storm and delivered the food during a 500 year storm and we appreciated all the extra efforts. Thanks so much Charlene for all of your help to make a difficult time more enjoyable.

    Dishes was well prepared. Mixture of seasoning and spices that was great on the pallet, not overpowering the dish. The texture of the meat was cooked to perfect, not over done. Mac and cheese was blended with several kinds of cheese, warm and creamy. Desert was banana pudding which was absolutely delicious. The cookies and bananas were firm not mushy. The pudding inside was just right, not overly sweet, not to think. The overall meal, the experience was very enjoyable.

    Kathleen was an excellent choice for our Christmas party in a large assembly room at the church. She willingly made a trip to the site weeks before the event to survey the kitchen and dining area and meet some of the organizers. Then, on the very rainy night of the party, she arrived at the time agreed upon, completed preparations begun at home in the church kitchen (leaving it probably in better condition than when she arrived). She had 3 assistants with her and besides cooking, they decorated and set up 7 buffet tables to serve the 115 guests. With 3 meat choices, potatoes, rice, dressing, noodles and multiple vegetables, 2 salads, homemade rolls and 4 desserts it was a sumptuous feast. All the food was well prepared, hot (if it should have been) and cold (as appropriate), attractively presented, and in more than adequate proportion. The serving dishes were kept filled during the buffet, and Kathleen moved around the room checking with seated guests to be sure all was right. At the close of the meal, when the group was enjoying musical entertainment, Kathleen and her staff unobtrusively cleared the tables and packaged remaining food. Since few in our group needed "take outs" Kathleen happily took leftovers to three needy families she was aware of. The price we agreed upon was VERY acceptable, the terms of payment easy, and Kathleen's willingness to adapt to our changing numbers and letting us actually decorate our own dining tables made everyone happy. WE would certainly recommend her services to anyone.

    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.
