Thomas is the best! I hired Thomas via Thumbtack for private cooking lessons as a Christmas present for my wife. He arrived on time and together we learned how to cook a wonderful and scrumptious entree, side and desert. Everything was so delicious and flavorful and the best part was that Thomas taught us how to easily replicate for future entertaining. Thomas is polite, courteous and VERY professional. You will feel very comfortable having him in your home as if an old friend has shown up for a cooking lesson. Thomas cleaned up everything and we had the rest of such a special night to ourselves. What a treat. I highly, highly recommend Thomas Hudson. His food is sooooo good!

The cooking class we asked Mitchell Goran to conduct was a birthday gift to our 10-year old granddaughter, Katherine. "Mitch"is clearly an experienced and competent chef. He knows what he is doing and does it well, answering any questions asked along the way. Ahead of time he asked the right questions about the planned cooking class, checked to verify the supplies that we already had and carefully purchased the others he needed. As the class progressed it became evident that Mitch is not only a fine chef; he is a very good teacher. He was patient and careful teaching Katherine basic skills: how to handle a knife and how to separate the white from the yolk of an egg. He used words to describe the cooking process that she could easily understand. He helped Katherine write down each step in the preparation so that she had a record in her own words. He gave Katherine ample time to practice her newly found skills, even to the point of extending his time with her beyond the contracted time. The smiles, the occasional laughter, and the good meal at the end were clear testimony of a class well conceived and well executed.

We hired Lina and Franco to cate four small, intimate wedding and were so pleased with the food and their warm and professional nature, we have since had them out to our home to run a cooking class for us and some friends. They are the real deal! Incredible and authentic. The food is fantastic but you also get a cultural experience when you work with them. Highly recommend!

Jessica expertly worked from a comprehensive questionnaire and other tools to understand my dietary needs (as well as food pleasure needs) to design the ideal diet for me, as well as delicious meal plans. Her culinary skills are superb. My health has improved dramatically, and these organic meals, from locally sourced ingredients, have changed my life.

I have taken two cooking classes with Chef Celeste Borelli at her boutique studio kitchen in Avon and could not have been more pleased with both of them! Chef Borelli has a warm and inviting personality and is truly gifted at turning fresh, local ingredients into elegant, yet simple to prepare, dishes that I have made myself several times since the classes. In addition, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a lovely and delicious brunch prepared by Chef Borelli at her home. I encourage you to contact Chef Borelli whether you are looking to learn some fresh new dishes to share with family and friends this holiday season or could use a little help with your cooking.

Chef Jenn demonstrated a level of versatility and professionalism that can't be matched when she held a Thai cooking class for my bachelorette. With last minute notice and requests we were sure we would have had to compromise on she came through with exactly what we wanted. To top it off she did so quickly, and more flexibly than we could have ever asked for! She was knowledgeable, fun, and she fit right in with my crazy group of girlfriends making for an amazing night! I have used her tips and tricks frequently in my own kitchen and have used her recipes multiple times in my home and they are always a hit! Highly recommended!

Mala is so clearly passionate about her cooking, and she is great at sharing that joy with the folks in her classes. The atmosphere she creates is relaxed and fun. The directions are carefully broken down into easy steps, and we left with the confidence that we would be able to attempt the dishes at home. Most important, Mala's food is delicious! Treat yourself and sign up for one of these classes!

we had a large party that we had to find catering for last minute as the other person we had hired had bailed on us at the last second. abudanza eased our frustrations with the last person with there friendly attitude, punctuality and there ability to work with us in creating our menu. we were looking for a place that could do both children's and adult dishes for about 150 people, Abudanza express did just that! we had delicious burgers, hotdogs, and grinders for the kids and some of the best wings, pasta, and meat dishes i have ever tasted for the Adults! overall some of the best catering i have ever recieved from this website!

    Roger was extremely professional start to finish. My girlfriends and I had a cooking party and had a blast. He presented a few different menus and we worked together to define our "lesson". He even suggested wine pairings. Overall, we had fun, learned some new techniques, and had a fabulous meal. And he left my kitchen spotless! Can't recommend Roger enough!

    Brendan came to the house to give my 9 year grandson a cooking lesson. H chose Italian from a list sent by Brendan and Chicken Rollatini as the main course. H had the time of his life!! Brendan explained and demonstrated but allowed H to do the work. Brendan chose not to wear his Chef's whites because he didn't want to intimidate H. It was an incredible experience (with delicious results) and I would happily recommend him to anyone who asks!!!

Thank you Chef Rob for making my wife's birthday so memorable.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
