Working with Sarah & Nakia to throw a New Year's Eve party at our home was an awesome experience! All we had to do is give them a general idea of what we wanted, and they took it from there. They sent us a really nice proposal with menu and style ideas, adjusted it with our feedback, and then executed the event very professionally. All of our guests raved about the food and decor!

    I don't know what was best-Chef Elle, the food or her assistant, Hillary. We brought her to cater Snack Day at work. It's been three weeks ago and our ENTIRE team is still talking about our latest event. Before we found Chef Elle, Snack Day was cheese dip, fruit trays, guac and chips. Hillary worked with us to schedule a tasting, something we'd never had before, mind you. From the mushroom munchies and those creole rice balls and that homemade soda is OMG!! to die for!!! A few even commented about the setup. Everything was laid out beautifully. Well, done, Chef. Claire R.

    What a wonderful idea for a ladies night! As working professionals, it’s difficult to find time to prepare a healthy meal. Our group consisted of ladies who barely knew how to boil water to those who could give Paula Dean a run for her money. With varying culinary skills, Chef G’s patience was greatly appreciated. From food prep to dinner time, the experience was phenomenal. Our meal of choice was pan-seared lamb shops, garlic asparagus and roasted potatoes. The personal touch of supplying a copy of the recipe for each of the attendees was awesome. I’m looking forward to recreating this meal for my husband on our anniversary.

    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.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
