John catered an in-home 80th birthday party for 25 people this past weekend. All the food was excellent and well-presented - beautiful stationary displays and the passed appetizers won raves. John was very easy to work with, very professional and very helpful in crafting the menu. I knew what I wanted for the most part, but he helped me hone in on the perfect amount of food. We had enough food that the anyone could come back for seconds or thirds, but not an insane amount of leftovers that would go to waste.

William Ference Catering catered our wedding and did a truly outstanding job. The food was top notch and the prices were fair. Everyone at our wedding kept coming up to me and telling me how delicious everything was. William went above and beyond every step of the way. He was always available whenever we needed to ask a question or had any concerns before the wedding. In addition to the wonderful food William had some of the best catering staff that I have ever seen. I have worked in food service on and off for years and know how hit or miss people can be. His team out performed anything that I had ever seen. When we arrived to the venue, I was greeted by one of his guys that immediately ran up and asked what he could help me with. I was very impressed and certainly needed the help. The team would constantly be aware when drinks were getting low and would immediately ask if anyone needed a refresher. Nobody really ever had to wait in line for a drink and the tram did a great job keeping everything stocked and clean. I would highly recommend William Ference Catering for any event and especially if you’re getting married, you WON’T be disappointed.

Doug will be missed at Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton, Florida. His eagerness to engage his clients in a way that makes you feel comfortable and motivated is one of his many assets. He has organized activities for the Broken Sound residents, including nutrition programs, competitions, evening seminars, training awareness and the realization that you can reach your personal best. He keeps track of his clients' progress and knows what exercise program will fit their needs to achieve the best results. His knowledge and expertise is truly an asset.

I have been working with Nancy since mid August. Upon meeting Nancy did a complete review of my current fitness, chronic conditions that she would need to design a plan to improve and work with as well as assess my overall fitness goals. In the 2 months that we have been working together Nancy has improved my nutrition and overall fitness. I have lost close to 20 lbs, over 3% in body fat, over an inch in lost in the waist while adding muscle to my chest and biceps. Her work style is both motivating but firm. I would recommend her to all who are serious about getting in shape and positively changing your lifestyle.

Lori Rizzo was a pleasure to work with from the first second of our conversation through many twists & turns in the catering job (including 3 changes of venue) up until the excellent food and service she provided at the event. This was for a large anniversary party of 300+. Lori helped us design a delicious and cost-effective menu, working with our budget but putting the satisfaction of the guests as a top priority as well. She provided excellent and plentiful appetizers and desserts for our guests. Through the various venue changes, we had to keep altering the menu, but she was always patient and solved every problem. She was very responsive via email and phone, and I was never for one moment worried that she wouldn't come through with excellent catering services. She had solutions to all of our various challenges in an unconventional space with last-minute changes. I would strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Great food, professional service for our party of 22. The carrot/ginger soup, the chicken tacos, and the fried artichokes were amazing. Everything else was also fantastic, too. All of the guests were very complimentary. Naturally, we were also very pleased with Renee and her staff and am happy to recommend her.

I have been working out on my own for the past several years and recently found that I had plateaued. i was doing the same things over and over and never reaching my desired fitness goals. I was looking for a new challenge. If you are ready to make a commitment to training, Ryan from Cross Climb is the place to check out. I was impressed with the thorough interview and individual plan for my fitness. At 58, I wondering If i could do this again. Ryan assured me that I could. He will works out an individualized plan to help you realize your fitness goals. He wants to understand your past so he can help you move to the future. Ryan has a passion for fitness, nutrition and good health and has come up with a program that will challenge you. He has a positive attitude towards his clients and is willing to take the time so that they can get the most out of the experience. He specializes in working with clients who are in the 40’s -60’s and is very patient. The workouts are challenging and unique. I feel confident I am in good hands and look forward to my workouts twice a week.

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

Since I began training and nutrition counseling with Nick 10 months ago, I have found success in not only weight loss, but in gaining strength and endurance as well. Together we are approaching a loss of 60 pounds, and I feel better than I have in years! Prior to connecting with him, I had a knee injury that held me back from certain movements. He has been able to help me improve my stability and address several imbalances I experience due to compensation. His in-depth knowledge of the human body constantly impresses me, and he knows how to work with my ability level to achieve results. I find Nick to approach every session thoughtfully, with variation and attention to proper technique to reach the goals for my personal plan. Sessions are always fun and innovative, and I am repeatedly surprised by how quickly they seem to pass! Conversation is easy, and he takes an active interest in what I have to say. From day one, he has been an excellent listener, truly hearing what I hope to get out of our time together, and going above and beyond to get me there. He offers maintainable dietary advice and realistic activity goals to keep me on track the days we are not training, all while holding me accountable. When I feel hesitant in trying something new, he reassures me. When I feel frustrated in my capability, he reminds me how far I’ve come. He knows when I’ve reached a limit, and when to gently push me through something challenging. Nick is the full package. He is generous with his time and expertise, accommodating, easy going, kind, and understanding. In our initial meeting, he told me, “I’m going to help you help YOU,” and he has been true to his word. Your goals will become his goals, too (and maybe you'll even go beyond them!). He is a professional through and through, and most importantly, he is truly a good person.

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.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
