Where to start...from our first contact to the seeing the kitchen totally clean after cooking the most fabulous food and serving at our party of 100 or intimate dinner for 14-it was all perfection. I can't wait for the next event-my only fear-Renee will become so sought after that she may be busy.....I know to book way in advance!

We have had Kevin in our home before to cook for us and we leaped at the chance to have him back. If you've never had a private, professional chef come to your home, I would highly recommend Kevin to be that Chef for you whether it's your first time, or 20th time. Kevin was punctual, accommodating, and required no help from us throughout the evening. He provided an experience better than any restaurant we've dined at. The food was excellent, fresh, and seasonal. At the end of the evening we welcomed him to sit down and hang out with us for a little bit, and the more we learned about his life and career, the more honored we felt to have him in our home. It's going to be difficult now for any occasion to not have Kevin come back and provide such an awesome experience. Thank you Kevin for being entertaining and spending time with us. We already can't wait to have you back!

I've been enjoying food that Christopher prepares for many years. He can make all the things that I like to eat and more. I recently had a dinner party and hired him as my personal chef. All the guests at the table were real foodies and loved the dishes he prepared that evening. I've also attended group cooking classes he has given in the past and have taken private one-on-one classes to learn specific kitchen skills and recipes I now make on my own. If you want a cooking instructor, personal chef service or a private chef, I highly recommend Chris for job. Geoff G. Charlestown, RI

Serge is an extremely talented cook. He puts his heart and soul into the process, that seems so easy when he does it but so difficult to replicate! The end result: amazing dishes, so flavorful, tasty. Unusual combination of ingredients, interesting preparations! He also puts a great emphasis on cooking healthy, which is extremely important for most of us! Serge is not only a great cook, but also a very patient teacher, he enjoys the teaching and enjoys cooking for everyone.

    Brian has come into my classroom three times to make Mac and Cheese for my students. The first time he came in I was concerned about how could he keep the students focused and interested in his cooking. He was excellent. He attended class wearing his chef jacket and brought his knives. Once Brian had started to prepare the mac and cheese, he took time to explain to the students the 5 main sauces. He continually fielded questions from the students. The questions ranged from "What is the strangest food you have ever prepared?" to "How much do you make?" Brian was able to keep their interest especially when he showed them how he chopped food. He showed the students the various knives that he uses when preparing food. Brian finished his presentation by serving the students a generous helping of Mac and Cheese. On his last visit, Brian was challenged to prepare his dish without using gluten. Brian was able to do this and still provide a delicious meal. Brian is a very knowledgeable chef. He has an easy going personality that makes your experience enjoyable. The pride he shows in his craft is inspiring.

      I took two cooking classes with Ana. For someone like me, who feels as comfortable in the kitchen as in outer space, my experience with Ana was eye-opening. She teaches with patience, care, and attention to detail. Her good humor helped me relax through the preparation of a three-course dinner... Twice!! I feel more confident in my kitchen, and now I dare to experiment with more than scrambled eggs. Thank you, Ana!

      Lisa catered a surprise 40th birthday party that I hosted recently & she exceeded my expectations. Her cooking is amazing, seriously the best you've ever had. Having worked in the restaurant industry for over 25 years - I wish I could bottle her customer service & personality up because she just GETS IT!!

      Lisa taught cooking to our daughter. Lisa was an awesome coach and knows so much about food, recipes and the science behind food. My daughter looked forward to Lisa's class every week, and loved her company. Often, they would continue discussions about food way beyond scheduled time. Lisa always went above and beyond the recipes, and explained the science behind cooking, reasons why processes worked the way they did, and ideas for taste variations and improvements. Lisa has experience with a wide range of cuisines - pastries, desserts, american, asian, italian, and many others. We loved eating up the food after classes. She is dedicated to educating students and recommended many local university/school classes that could help my daughter get to the next level in cooking. Lisa is an outstanding cooking coach, and we recommend her at the highest level for adults and young aspiring cooks alike.

      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.
