Chef Kev provided wonderful food and outstanding customer service. He was very pleasant to work with. He and his assistant, Anita, made it possible for us to relax and be good hosts while our guests were taken care of. I appreciated the worry-free night knowing that everything was handled. Anita even chatted with guests who didn't know many people to make sure they were having a good time. My favorite items were the pasta salad, pulled pork sandwiches, and the dessert tray items because they tasted great and they were easy to eat on small plates while standing up. The sparkling punch with strawberries was so good -- I think I drank a whole pitcher. Bonus: my fridge is full of awesome leftovers. I won't have to cook for a week.

I arranged a private cooking class at my home for several of my friends as a Christmas gift. The event was a great success! Learned how to make pasta and other tips about cooking. Our event was last night 1/9/16. I would highly recommend Stephanie and would use her again for other events. Isabel

I hired Dani to cater a large work lunch at the non profit think tank where I work. She did an AMAZING job. She was extremely responsive, easy to schedule with (even when I sent her the wrong date), showed up early, and stayed throughout the lunch to make sure everything ran smoothly. Her food was delicious and easily catered to a range of dietary restrictions. About 90-100 people showed up (I had asked for catering for 70) and there were even leftovers. I can't recommend her enough! She has since come back for multiple events. Everyone at work has raved about her cooking.

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.

The cooking class was excellent! Phillip was very warm, accommodating and made sure the evening was special and educational. Phillip and his wife walked us through all the steps in making the dishes we had and I also learned some cool knife skills. Learning how to debone a duck and present it was very interesting. They made my birthday very memorable and quite an experience. If you've ever wondered what it is like to be a guest on a cooking show, this experience is very similar. I learned a lot, ate a lot and had a lot of fun. Overall the experience was like having a friend come over and cook with us. I highly recommend Antonia and Phillip catering for you cooking class and any food related needs you may have. Absolutely delicious food!

I am a home cook with a long-time interest in cooking. My husband and I have been cooking, modifying and developing recipes for over 2 decades. I have a particular interest in healthy, non GMO and low to no-meat recipes that often include gluten-free options. I have a large garden during the growing season and try to incorporate and just pick foods into meals whenever available.

I absolutely love Too Busy Meal Service. We are a family of four with two growing teenage boys. Our schedule is crazy with sports and music activities so we often don't have time to make a decent dinner. With this service we always have a good, healthy meal to eat and the cost is about the same as what I would spend at the grocery store every week, except now I don't have to cook. This service saves us time while eating more balanced. It's a win-win situation!

I took Dorina’s Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina’s emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

I must say Chefgreenlife is one of the main reason why I care about my health. Not only have I learned to love healthy food which is funny because I used to complain about finding healthy food that actually taste good and Chef would always laugh & prove me wrong - I've also learned to respect and value the the person cooking my food so now If you have bad vibes I won't even eat your food all things I've learned through Chefgreenlife ! Not to mention Queens extensive knowledge on life and other areas that aid in a healthy and wealthy mind state - Cheers to health wealth good food and chefgreenlife

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.
