I attended two cooking classes ( light Mexican and healthy grains) taught by Chris & Emily at the William Tally Rec Center. I highly recommend these classes. They were very informational and Chris &Emily are full of cooking knowledge which they share. We made several recipes and sampled our finished dishes. After the Mexican class, I promptly purchased a tortilla press. It is so easy to make your own corn tortillas. I would have never tried it on my own. Lori

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.

I attended a cooking class for 5 taught by chef Jackie. She was a lot of fun to work with, encouraging, friendly, and even gave me a few cooking tips that weren't directly related to the class. The food was amazing and I can't wait to try these recipes on my own. I would recommend her cooking class for a fun learning experience!

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.

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!

We were lucky enough to catch Ed, specifically, on an "away trip" in North Carolina where we had him come in to cook for a small gathering in honor of my wife's birthday. We weren't looking for a formal meal, and we had a series of small dishes fit for socializing and gaming while we ate. There were also some innovative sweets for dessert. We got what we were looking for, and everybody had a great time with the food and also with Ed.

I am a private cook. I would plan a menu and do all the shopping, then prepare and cook the meal. I then would clean up. I have been trained in classical French, and I am a Greek. I can cook anything. I can do a week's worth of cooking, a dinner party, or a holiday event.

I was being trained by Catherine years ago and I said something about " No pain, no gain " as she corrected my posture during the routine. She quickly said that no one should experience "pain" when working out. I knew then that I had FINALLY found a REAL trainer. Catherine's training and professional skills are unmatched. She simply loves doing what she does and it shows. She trains you according to your skill level and ability, and she is never distracted by today's tech gadgets ,( cellphones) which means you get 100% of her time, every time. I moved out of state for a short time and invited Catherine down for a visit and workout of course. she could not out run me on the beach, but she whipped my butt in the gym , but they were good workouts. Later on during her visit, she took me to the market and taught me how to properly shop for quality organic foods , and quickly made a knock out dish for me and my friend as we looked on and took notes. I moved back to the DMV area, reconnected with her and now I am receiving weekly healthy meals from her. Boy is that a relief. And knowing that she is a certified nutritionist only adds to her credibility. In short, if you are looking for true quality in a trainer as well as someone too cook healthy meals for you, Catherine is the hands down choice and that's why I give her 5 stars. Keep up the good work Catherine. Mark Stith Silver Spring, MD

I love cooking because it lets you be creative and think outside the box. It makes you use skills that you necessarily didn't think you had. Cooking should be fun and simple, not complicated and stressful. What I want to achieve is to teach people the art of cooking and how simple it is to make something that sounds so complicated, like chicken cacciatore, into something that's simple and good.

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.
