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.

Private Cooking class. Lauren was unbelievable re response time, energy and professionalism. We've yet to take the class but know if it's half the initial experience it will be well worth the money.

Chef Matt is amazing! Not only did I learn new knife skills and cooking techniques, I also had a blast! It doesn't hurt that the food was absolutely delicious! I will be scheduling additional classes.

Lauren is a great chef, she really knows what she is doing and will help you every way she can. She always responds right away, she walks you through every step, she is very patient and will explain the same thing over and over until you get it. Besides being a great chef, she has an amazing personality; she is very easy to get along with and she makes the whole process of cooking fun and easy. I will definitely be taking more classes with her, as i have enjoyed my experience with her very much.
