"Dillion, By the Graham, helped me formulate this dinner from the get go; from the concept, the menu, and finally the food itself. I was hosting a dinner party for some friends, an annual thing we do. This one was special. A couple in our group were going to be moving to another country and I wanted their last dinner part to be something grand. I called Dillion, upon getting a recommendation from another friend. He was extremely professional and helpful with any questions and concerns I had throughout the process. He suggested food pairings and how best to plate. Let's not forget the food, the meal was excellent. He came to my home promptly and set to work. As I was preparing the house for my guests I would at times stop, just amazed at the aromas coming from the kitchen. My anticipation was rising. As my guests arrived, they too commented on smells of food cooking, certainly better than anything I've ever made they commented, and they hadn't even eaten anything yet! When we sat down to the table, Dillion brought out the food. He explained each dish answered questions from the table. The first bite was perfect. The steak, perfectly pink in the center, the sauce tingled with a slight sweetness, the two mixed into a melody of flavor. The rest of the meal followed suit. Afterwards my friends stated it was the best dinner party I had ever hosted. My friends who moved, they still talk about the food, not so much the game I set out to play. Dillion was excellent and I will be hiring him for the next dinner party since he was such a hit. I can't recommend him more!"

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.
