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!

I was lucky enough to briefly work with Dennis Zidek and enjoy his innovative and utterly delicious cuisine while living in St Croix. He truly is an amazing chef who stood out on the island as one of, if not the best in his field! An easy 5 star rating and can't wait to enjoy his cooking once again.

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 :)

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.
