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.

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!!

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.

    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!

    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!

      Jess was exaxtly what I was looking for! A great service where I can go to learn how to cook any dish I'm inspired to make. She has a very chill attitude about her that made me feel at ease. I plan on going back to her for more lessons. Thanks Jess!

      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.
