I have eaten Donald food many times and have been satisfied each time. He has cooked for large crowds and small family dinners. Always get many compliments. He is able to adjust to other peoples taste. He can cook mild flavored as well as spicy at the same time. Most of all he enjoys what he is doing.


I love cooking and making great food that people can enjoy. I began cooking 8 years ago, and I fell in love with it. I provide a variety of food service as well. I have bartending experience.


I've been cooking all my life. I learned it from my mom and all her great recipes. After that, I went to school for culinary arts to learn more.


I'm able to follow recipes very well and do meal planning. Also, dietary cooking is available. I have about 4 years of hands-on cooking experience.

I prepare healthy and flavorful meals for one to 1000 clients; no event is too big or too small. I provide all supplies and keep inventory of supplies ordering when necessary. I have both an Illinois sanitation certificate and ServSafe sanitation certification from the American Restaurant Association. I have over 20 years of cooking experience in commercial kitchens as well as raising eight children of my own. I have experience in multiple styles of cooking and can adapt menu and recipes to accommodate health and taste preferences. I have studied under Chef Paul Stroup who is a member of the Central Illinois Chef Association. I have completed a culinary arts program and continue my education to increase my skill level. I have multiple references upon request.


I love to cook, and I love to bake. Cooking and baking are a passion of mine, and I am good at it.

As a full-service company that aims to fit your full-service needs, we offer a large array of services including deep cleaning, weekly and monthly services; meal preparations; and personal assisting on your design. Your plan best fits your needs. The chefs are knowledgeable in vegged and kosher laws as well as ethnic cuisines. Check us out on Facebook.


I introduce guests to the world of food. I continually try to reinvent the boundaries of which the culinary world lives by. Catering, consulting, personal chef and even cooking lessons are all available as well.


Everyone should have basic cooking skills under their belt. I don't mean thawing and reheating. I mean cooking a complete meal with pan sauce and a vegetable that didn't come out of a can.

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.
