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

Ethan at Mad City Chefs did an excellent job catering our wedding. All of the food was outstanding and our guests raved about it. They specialize in small plates but worked with us to put together a delicious assortment of appetizers and a dinner buffet. Honestly it was some of the best food I've ever had and I am a pretty good cook who eats out a lot. The Peruvian chicken was divine and the citrus salmon was the best salmon I've ever tasted. Ethan and his staff were just wonderful to work with and we couldn't have been happier. My only regret is we left the next day for the honeymoon and had to give away most of the left overs. I highly recommend Mad City Chefs!

Katie created salsa and tacos for an engagement party we had. The food was delicious and unique. The salsa was made with different colored tomatoes from a local organic garden. Fresh seasonings were combined with a hint of vinegar, making just the right flavor and spiciness that was well received by our guests. The taco meat was a marinated pork butt cooked in a slow cooker, resulting in a tender meat that was the perfect combination of salty and fruity. Condiments included sour cream, fresh grated cheese, chopped lettuce, and pickled red onion. People particularly raved about the pickled red onions. The buffet serving was efficiently set up and easily used. I will hire Katie again for future events. Her creativity, cooking skills, and service were just what I was looking for.

I attended a raw food cooking class taught by Rhonda. I feel like I learned A LOT, and it was really fun. Rhonda is so knowledgeable, and she is really easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable discussing my health with her, and her class really inspired me to take responsibility for my own health. I can't wait to start making more of these healthy goodies :)

My experience in working with Chef Tony was wonderful. He shows up when he says he will be there and works hard all day long preparing your meals. He is very organized and he brings all his equipment with him for cooking. He cleans up everything before he leaves and everything is spotless but the beauty is I have meals ready for me to eat with no clean up. What man does that today. The food is so good and we enjoyed them all. In addition, the sides are just as tasty and I love that we have sides to our meals. Always a challenge to do everything yourself with little time in the schedule. He provide a lot of variety and all very tasty meals. Chef Tony is out to please you and has a great work ethic but also one of the nicest people and is a very trustworthy person. If you want something specific he will make it happen. Happy eating!

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.
