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!

I work in the Cultural department of the French Cultural Center in Boston and Aurélie has partnered with us for one of our family events, the Fete des Rois, held on January 9th. Aurelie has done an outstanding job by preparing 100% home made and from scratch, eight gorgeous galettes. They were delicious and '' even better than in France'' some attendees said. I have only worked with Aurelie for one time but I know that I would definitely contact her again for other events related to French food. or French cooking classes. She is also very friendly and sweet and it is a great pleasure to partner with her.

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.

      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!

      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.

      My two boys have taken cooking classes from Tanya the Homestyle Gourmet for years. They love her classes, camps and workshops. My 13 year old will often make cookies on his own in the evenings AND HE CLEANS UP AFTER HIMSELF! My 11 year old makes a variety of different guacamoles on his own and they both are interested in helping with meals and meal planning.

      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!!

      I have known Maxwell Finn for over 3 years. He is a superb chef, having prepared a number of amazing meals for my family and extended group of friends. He is creative in both new and standard tastes. He is a careful listener, making sure that he knows what we are interested in and want to spend. He is always punctual, leaves no mess and, most importantly, has a lot of fun with his cooking. He is wonderful to work with and I heartily recommend him for meals for 4 to 400. Thank you.

      About

      I work as a caterer and private chef on a part-time basis. I am beginning to run cooking classes in Warren, RI at Hope & Main. I went to culinary school at the International Culinary Center and then cooked in NYC for three years. What I think makes my business successful and different is that while delivering a beautiful, delicious product, I am a low-key, calm, talkative person who likes discussing food and passing along all the culinary techniques that I learned in school and in restaurants in NYC.

      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.
