It was a pleasure dealing with Chris. he was responsive to any and all questions and was extremely helpful in a pinch when the weather caused a hiccup in our plans and had to change dates at the last minuet. His cooking was exceptional and I look forward to having him cook again for next year if he's available.

We used J&L catering for our wedding on 7.21.18. They were wonderful! Our guest raved about the quality of the food. The whole team was professional and provided amazing service. John was great to work with from the start. He was professional at all times, responsive and his passion for cooking shows in all he does. We will absolutely used J&L for future events!

Marty and co catered our daughter's grad party, what a wonderful experience! Everything was fantastic. More compliments on the quality of the food and the great service than I could count. Marty's cooking was done by his two sons and, along with the staff, provided a great, seamless experience for all. This was my best experience ever with a caterer, absolutely great! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!!

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!

Michael is a welcomed addition to our weekly routine. He began teaching my 14 year old son some basic knife skills and techniques in July and by August they were whipping up everything from comfort food to elevated culinary masterpieces. My son's self confidence continues to grow week after week as a result of his time in the kitchen. Michael's passion for flavor coupled with his extensive knowledge of limitless styles of cooking, make each week a culinary adventure.

    Eilene has been cooking for my wife and I 2x/week for about 6+ months and it has been an absolute pleasure. We both work full time and have 3 kids under 6 years old. When we get home from work at the end of the day, not only is it hard for us to summon the energy to cook a healthy balanced meal for ourselves and our family as soon as we walk in the door, but even more importantly we prefer to spend that time playing with our kids rather than in the kitchen. Eilene has provided a perfect solution for us! Not only does she cook amazing meals that both taste great and are healthy, she's a great person and our kids always look forward to seeing her. If you are looking to lighten the burden of cooking meals each night, you can't possibly do better than Eilene and Too Busy to Cook! Craig Newton, MA

    I hired Jeanne because I needed a health and Wellness coach. She helped me pick out the food I needed to prepare healthy meals. She taught me a lot of things I didn’t know about nutrition and how to make a healthy meal plan without spending much money.

    Christopher provided a fantastic 4-course meal for our 18 person party. He was accommodating, responsive to emails, personable and most importantly a great chef. I intend on hiring him again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone else.

      About

      I am a (currently) retired 36-year-old executive chef with over 20 years of experience. I left the world of high-paced industrial kitchens to spend more time with my family, but how I miss playing with food! If you want to learn basic techniques or just build a repertoire of perfect meals all while having fun, let's get into that frying pan!

      About

      I am a chef with a flare for adapting menus to your needs, desires and budget, whether you wish for specific nutrition or complex themes. I bring twenty-five years of experience from around the world to bring full-flavored, approachable food. I can provide you with a menu for an intimate dinner or a graduation BBQ. I have taught in accredited culinary schools, and I can combine a cooking class with a cocktail party. Cooking with young people is always a treat for me, as well. Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all. -Harriet Van Horne

      About

      Having worked for a catering company, I know first-hand that companies often, sometimes necessarily, cut corners and in my opinion do not pay enough attention to detail or the customer's preferences. Working for myself gives me the freedom to indulge my perfectionist side, and spend as much time and attention on what I am preparing as it takes in order to create the dish both my customer and I want. I would not serve my customers anything I would not serve my friends and family, and I genuinely want those I work for to feel they are getting exactly what they envisioned.

      About

      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.
