Julie Peters prepared food and taught a two-hour class using Young Living Essential Oils. We discussed the menu ahead of time. Julie gprovided great customer service, listening to my input on what might work for our group. When I attended with several team members, I was impressed. The food was nutritious as well as delicious! She even went the extra mile and made everything look elegant. One thing I really appreciated is how she made it simple and explained everything clearly. We received recipes and I was able to go home and make the dish on my own. Not only was her class organized, but also creative and fun! It was a joy to work with Julie. Ms. Peters is a professional. I look forward to enjoying more of her food in the future!

    Ever since I was a little girl in Italy, I have adored cooking. My curiosity for new techniques and recipes helps me learn new things every day. Sharing food with others and discovering our own culinary secrets is such a special thing, and our capacity to try and appreciate new foods is infinite. Food brings people together, it makes us happy, it does more than just sustain us—it makes our lives richer. My name is Alessandra, and I'd like to cook with you.

    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.
