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!

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!

Lara and Norbert exceeded our expectations. We had a New Years Eve party with them cooking and performing a wine tasting. Laras food was excellent, Norbert was great as throughout the night and we learned some new things about wine glasses also.

We had the pleasure of putting together a cooking demonstration and tasting series with Joe this past Summer on the Kendall Square Rooftop Garden. This series was an absolute blast! Joe created a different recipe each week by incorporating garden ingredients found in the Green City Grower Gardens located on the roof and showed us how to use them in everyday cooking. This series was free to the public and had some delicious results! We are looking forward to a new series starting every Wednesday evening in June!

    Alaina personalized the menu to our tastes. We learned a lot more about plant-based protein sources and new ideas for desserts and breakfasts. We left with enough delicious leftovers for lunches & dinners for the next few days, along with the detailed recipes. We repeated the recipes within the first week. Alaina also followed up with additional information about our questions involving cholesterol after our cooking lesson. We definitely recommend her classes for healthy, tasty meals.

    I am very happy working with Nate. He broke down my macronutrients for me and helped paint a picture of how I need to approach weight loss. While working with Nate I have lost 10 lbs in 3 months. It could have been more but honestly I had a few hiccups in the beginning which Nate helped me realize and got me on track. That being said he has expectations, which I respect, to take what we’ve talked about and start implementing in my life. I’ve been exercising for years but the last 3 months with Nate in conjunction has given me more result than I’ve ever seen. Also I may try some of his cooking lessons in the future because my goodness the scallop meal I tried from him deserves to be in a 5 star restaurant. That being said I have to give the man the 5 stars he deserves.

    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.

    Our party of five hired Shilpi for a private Indian cooking class at her home in Andover MA. We had a wonderful time. Shilpi was warm, welcoming, and well prepared. After a quick lesson in Indian spices, we immediately got down to cooking five delicious dishes. It was a lot of fun and the hands-on teaching along with the detailed handouts will make it easy to recreate the delectable recipes at home. We highly recommend Shilpi and her cooking classes.

      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

      I know what I offer is not too common. There are many cooking instructors out there that work in a store or school environment, but this is totally different. You are in a private home, cooking hands on with the chef and getting a much more personalized service. The atmosphere is all about Italy and breaking bread with family and new friends. It's a very "Italian" experience. In addition, the proceeds and sponsorship of certain fundraising events are for the benefit of local charities such as FAF, Beverly Bootstraps, Boston Strong, etc...

      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.
