From the first phone conversation with Mike Watson I knew our evening was going to be great. He was very professional but so easy to work with. When the night came both Mike & Derek showed up with tools in hand and ready to entertain. Our friends were very impressed as were my husband and I. Mike & Derek were fun and invited us to test taste what they were preparing. We all discussed restaurants and downtown Chicago. Theyre background experience is just so off the charts. Who wouldn't want these two in their home cooking for them. Price was very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Good time was had by all and I'd definitely hire them again. Thanks Mike & Derek for making my lifetime wish such an enjoyable one. Patti Limbach

I was blessed with a year of food prepared by Chef Karen. It was the best year of eating I've ever had. She is able to mold her cooking to the tastes of my housemates and I, while still pushing our palates to a higher level with new, exciting, classic, and creatve dishes. Unfortunately I had to move away, but hope to one day dine under her cheffing again. Oh, she's also very friendly and easy to work with--probably her best attribute.

I have hired Katie to provide both in-home cooking classes and personal chef services. When instructing the cooking classes, she provides an amazing, relaxed, and fun atmosphere that puts everyone at ease. She also has a unique ability to quickly provide alternatives to suit your diet, or even what you have on hand in your kitchen. In terms of her personal chef services, she is flexible and easy to work with. She is a genius at making healthy whole food meals without compromising taste and satiety. I continue to recommend her to everyone I know.

    We hired Girl and the Kitchen for a small party. The food was amazing, service was great and they cleaned up the kitchen after. Also for those that enjoy cooking or want to learn, the chefs are more than happy to share their knowledge.

    Sandra has cooked for me twice and I can tell you, this woman knows her craft well! I am impressed by each opportunity I have had to taste her food. My first meal was a delicious collection of delectable ham, smoked turkey collard greens, corn bread, mac and cheese. I was in heaven. The ham was perfectly balanced (not overly salty), the collard greens had the right touch of smokey goodness with delightful chunks of turnkey meat and the mac and cheese...wow! Nice crispy baked goodness with smooth rich and creamy cheese goodness. The corn bread was the topper. I had to share with a friend so they could taste but then immediately thought, "I'll have to get more!" The second meal was a delicious spaghetti dish with garlic bread and a delicious salad. Wow again! The meat was in generous form here - a mix of quality ground beef and Italian sausage. I was in heaven! The sauce was delightfully balanced- flavorful and zesty but again, not salty! The garlic bread! I had to ask her how she made it because it was infused with flavor. Simply but delectable! The salad was not your lettuce and a few veggies affair. It was kale-based with chunks of apple, tomato, onion and many other favorites of mine. Truly, a dish that could be so bland and boring turned out to be another delight. Sandra asked me what I liked prior to cooking and did she deliver. Her use of spices is amazing. I keep going back to balanced and it is true. The flavor profile was amazingly great! I highly recommend Sandra. Not only does she deliver on the promise of making tasty food from the heart, she is a great teacher (she explained to me how to make the garlic bread her way) and she's a quality person. A delight on all fronts!

    Joelen is a prime example of talent, class, and professionalism! I had the opportunity to host several cooking classes with Joelen as the chef. Joelen goes through every detail of the recipe and gives you alternative options. The food is amazing and fresh and there is always plenty to take home! I can't wait to plan my next event!!!

      Mary's cooking classes are both fun and educational. Mary has an easy going style, yet she keeps you on track with easy to follow recipes and a helping hand when you need it. I am such a fan that I've taken 7 different classes with Mary! I've learned how to make bread and the jam and butter to put on it, pasta, apple pie and cheese! It's most fun when you bring a friend or two and make it a group outing.

      About

      We are an eclectic start-up group based in the Chicago area. Our team is led by chefs, computer geeks, health nuts, design guru’s, business icons, and more—we span the states from Chicago to NYC, and call everything from Chicago to Mexico to India our home. Our callings in life include great food, slow food, balanced lifestyles, the environment and sustainability, good music, good wine, and (for some of us) great computer games. Among other things, we are each busy working professionals—some of us with kids—some of us finishing or starting degrees in competitive fields. Because of our ambitions we all understand the importance and difficulty of having excellent, well-balanced meals. Our goal is to revolutionize the act of eating in: throw out preservative-filled frozen meals, ditch your bag of microwave popcorn. By changing your way, you help us in our mission to support local, ethical farming practices while maintaining conscious behavior toward our environment and the earth-- and all that in an effort to deliver the best meals around right to your door.

      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.
