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

Sorry about being a little late to review, but Carol is outstanding. We used Carol to prep and cook for my son and his wife's baby shower at our home. Carol came to the house the day before and did the prep work and cooked for 70+ people on the day of the shower. She was punctual, professional and efficient. We would recommend her and cannot wait for our next event to use her again.

My husband and I hired Tracy to prepare two dinners per week, to be dropped of at our River Forest home. Her recipes are outstanding and the food is very fresh and seasonal. The meals include a salad w/homemade dressing, along with the main course and different side dishes. Plus, Tracy is an extremely nice person who was on time, with all the items and directions clearly labeled. We were very impressed and will definitely call her again.

Chef Frank was very professional and quick to respond to all queries. He was flexible in scheduling and location and considerate given that we were in the middle of moving houses. The lesson was a birthday present for my 9 year old daughter and he made it an event to remember. I would highly recommend Chef Frank for cooking/baking lessons.

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.

My family has loved getting meals from Carla’s Fresh! She has always been super accommodating with special requests too. The meals have been delicious and getting her meals weekly has made a huge impact on our family (much less stress/ time I needed to spend cooking). Portions are typically very generous. The food is prepared well and not too heavily salted- which is great! Communicating with Carla has been easy and I recommend using her services!! Favorite meals for my family included her stuffed peppers, various lasagnas, chicken cutlets, and beef with string bean/broccoli stir fry. Yum!!

Brian came to my house to cook for a group of 8 of us my boyfriend's 30th birthday. Everyone could not stop raving about how great the meal was and how impressed they were. The quality was amazing. Everything was super fresh and delicious! He even sent us the recipes after the meal (per our request). Would highly recommend him and would definitely use him for future parties/events!

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.
