We are a group of 8 sisters who were celebrating our 20th anniversary of our annual "sister trip"! Having a personal chef is something we have talked about for years. Our dear Mother is 95 and had recently fallen seriously ill. We were not even sure if we would make the trip, right up to the last minute. Renee assured me that either way, she would be right on it. Renee was so easy to work with and helped me to customize a fabulous menu! She even adjusted the time, earlier than originally planned, to accommodate us. The food was FANTASTIC, plentiful, flavorful and fresh! Her homemade peach cobbler put Paula Dean's to shame! Renee and her assistant, Matt, joined right in with us; sharing stories and enjoying the banter that only a family can understand! She and Matt were just delightful AND they cleaned the kitchen and packed up all the leftovers for us to munch on later! This was definitely a highlight of our trip and we would ALL recommend Renee to anyone looking for an affordable GREAT meal! Since returning from our trip, we have suffered the sudden loss of a dear brother-in-law and are still caring for our Mother. Renee and Matt have reached out in sympathy, caring and support! We couldn't ask for more. I will try to post a picture or two but I am not the "techy" in the family. Thanks Renee for such a wonderful meal and great memories!

Chef Sherri made an outstanding dinner for my family & friends during our Hilton Head vacation. She shopped for all the necessary ingredients & prepared everything in the convenience of our kitchen. Chef Sherri's daughter assisted her by arranging flowers & place settings on the tables. She was gracious & professional & made the overall dining experience complete. The appetizers, entres, & dessert we're expertly prepared in a timely manner & delivered on taste & presentation. Our overall experience was very positive & we would definitely "rent" Chef Sherri again.

I have been to Chef Joe Randall's Cooking School a couple of times. The atmosphere was fun, and the food was excellent. I have known Chef Joe Randall for many years, it's always a pleasure to go spend an evening in his classes! Where else can you go to school and get an excellent meal?

    Chef Dee has helped instill old family traditions into our household again. She has a strong family background and she values time spent with loved ones. The few nights that she was preparing meals for my family- it was wholesome, pleasant and absolutely delicious! She introduced us to many different types of foods and herbs. I don't remember anyone ever going to bed hungry. She's amazing.

    We are a home-delivery meal concierge service that provides customized and nutritionally balanced meals for the person short on time but prioritizes health. However, let's be honest; we all indulge. I deliver weekly nutritionally balanced meals straight to your doorstep. Who hates cooking every night? No one likes cooking after a long, arduous day. So don't do it. Fix that glass of wine; read your book by the fire and let me work for you. The best news is, I won't be banging pots in your kitchen. I will deliver meals directly to you, twice a week. This optimizes freshness and allows us to verbally communicate. So stop wasting your money on overpriced fast-food joints. It's time to take control; imagine how much time you would save if every meal was already prepared and waiting with simple instructions.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
