I am so thankful for Chef Kev! He was fabulous. He was very responsive. He took care of everything for us, decorations, serving ware, set up and clean up. I was able to relax and enjoy the surprise party for my mother. I had no worries. He created a great menu for 40 people. BBQ salmon bites, honey ginger broiled black tiger shrimp, red pepper jumbo lump crab salad on puff pastry cups, are just a few of the items he prepared along with great selection of beer and wine. Everything was delicious. Kevin was warm and friendly. He was very response and worked with me... when the guest of honor was hospitalized and we weren't sure if the party would take place. I could not of been more pleased Kevin was very cooperative and compassionate and communicated well during this difficult time. The quest of honor made it and it was a success! I highly recommend Chef Kev!

I thoroughly enjoyed my coooking class with Manjiri! She was fantastic at explaining and also demonstrating the cooking techniques. The recipes were easy to follow and I was able to recreate them at home easily. Best part was that the food was delicious!! My daughter and I love the flavors of Indian food and Manjiri's dishes were comparable to food cooked at a high quality restaurant. I highly recommend her cooking class, you will love her!!

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 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

What a great afternoon spent with Chef Jackie. Our group was from a 55+ neighborhood and the cooking class we chose was her Vietnamese menu. We hope to continue some more great classes with Chef Jackie.

Danielle was a great person to add to our team, we switched up her normal services and asked her to be part of a cupcake baking competition. She brought great energy and was a pleasure to work with. Even though we may not have won, it was a fun event and we were very happy to have Danielle lead the team.

Pam responded promptly to my query, understood exactly what I envisioned for my brunch event, and created an excellent menu (including delicious home-baked pastry). She and her son arrived promptly, set up an attractive food table, served, cleaned up, and made the event effortless for me to host! It was a pleasure working with them.

At every Tiny Chefs' party, class, camp, or special event, children learn how to measure, pour, mix, and stir, and use their creativity to create delicious eats. Our cooking classes are a great way to introduce children to the joy of cooking and baking. Kids show a sense of pride when they can make something with their own hands. The objective of each event is to enhance confidence, skills, and pride in each child as they prepare fun and tasty meals. Your tiny chefs will learn by doing as they are encouraged to explore their imagination and creativity while learning basic cooking skills and safety in the kitchen.

Chef Terry did a cooking demo at my birthday party and was a huge hit! He was as entertaining as he was skillful and knowledgeable. Everyone had a great time! He taught us how to make inventive (and tasty!) appetizers, desserts, and even a few specialty cocktails! I can't wait to use him again!

Chef Matt is absolutely amazing! I have been using his personal chef services and I can honestly say that he has been a blessing in our life. I first learned about Chef Matt on an online community of moms in Old Town, Alexandria. Because I had a small baby and no time to cook, I decided to order our Thanksgiving meal from him. I was so happy I did – the food was absolutely fantastic and everyone at the dinner table raved about it. In fact, it was the best Thanksgiving meal that I have ever had. Since then I have been ordering from him on a regular basis. Chef Matt’s food is fresh, healthy and out-of-this-world delicious. His recipes are very diverse and incorporate a lot of international influences, which I love. Everyone in my home is so excited when we get the food from Chef Matt. I wish I knew about him long time ago, especially after we had our baby and struggled with finding the time to cook. I know that he teaches cooking classes and I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to learn how to cook amazing food directly from Chef Matt. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for personal chef services!

Meetal arrived exactly at our appointed time, was warm and bubbly, but also down to business! She wanted us to learn a few specific dishes and techniques, smells and sights, and she pushed us to do so, while engaging in lively and fun chatter. She taught us three different dishes, AND cleaned up in 1 hour and 15 minutes!! Simply amazing. I would recommend Meetal to anyone trying to cater a dinner, hosting a cooking class, etc. She is fabulous!!

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.
