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.

I wanted a fun night for myself and two of my closest friends. This was a gift for them, and I know they won't forget it. Sarah was so careful to make sure the event was customized to our liking. Everything was perfect. The wine pairings were excellent and food astounding. My group was running a little late, but that didn't stop Sarah from filling our time with valuable tips and tricks. If you want a personal experience in a comfortable setting, this is perfect! I've looked into and have seen other "cooking classes" and none of them offer the value Sarah does. I would absolutely recommend the Home Chef of NH!

Gita is personable, professional, and passionate about her cooking. We had a small dinner party featuring her Onion Tart, Chicken with Tomato Chutney, and Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Each dish was executed perfectly. Gita put her personal touch on everything, and our guests are still raving about it.

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.

We have been huge fans of Deirdre's cooking, having been fortunate enough to be invited to several events she has catered. We also had her cater a large graduation party and it was awesome. Not your standard fare (taco bar, yum!) and very reasonable, all with a huge family style smile!!!! We have plans to use Deirdre for our next graduation event and am hoping to be invited to other events she happens to be catering. Jim and Tiffany Antonellis

Serge is awesome! He has so much fun energy, is very knowledge and does a great job sharing all his knowledge with his students. The environment that He creates is great. Its very intimate with a small class size so that everyone is included and gets plenty of hands on time. The dishes He choose were spectacular and He even sends you home with printed out versions of the recipes. At no point during the class did I ever feel/ think to myself "i could never do this at home" He really brings everything down to a level where even the least experienced cook can understand and leave the class being able to apply all the skills that they learned that day. He makes cooking fun and easy, and instills confidence in his students make dishes that I normally would have strayed away from at home thinking that they were too complicated. I would highly recommended checking out a few of his classes, especially if you're looking for a fun night out with some friends!

Katie is really an amazing chef and creates wonderful experiences for in home dining. We've now had two great events catered by Katie and both were exceptional! She will work with you to collaborate on a menu, suggest great wine pairings, prepare and cook the meal, and even help with clean up at the end. If you're looking to try an in home chef experience, I can't recommend her highly enough. We plan to have many future meals with Katie in the future!

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!

Chef Julia is a passionate culinary wizard! She has a real passion for teaching people about delicious and nutritious food that can easily be made at home and enjoyed with family and friends. We had a great class with her, she designed our menu according to our culinary preferences and skill set, brought everything to our home for class, lead us through class, kept us on track, and cleaned up. I loved getting excited about cooking at home again!

We hired Gathered Table to cook for 11 women at a bachelorette party this past weekend. The food was delicious and they were a pleasure to work with. Mary carefully worked to craft a menu that suited our tastes perfectly. She was flexible, accommodating and professional. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend them to handle any type of event.

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 totally enjoyed Ricardo´s cuisine! He cooks in a delicate, passionate and conscious manner. All the ingedients were fresh and cooked respecting their nutrients. I was surprised by his ability to play with ingredients´combination and cooking techniques, enhancing food flavour and presentation. It was very easy to communicate with him. He has worked in different countries and kitchen´s styles, so he gave us very creative and healthy suggestions. I would completely recommend Ricardo.

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.
