Well well well, I'm not sure where to begin. Chef Serge is FABULOUS! His food is phenomenal and he is very creative with his menu. I had such a hard time narrowing down my selection. His personality is upbeat, lively and FUN! And all while cooking amazing food! I emphatically recommend Chef Serge to anyone looking for a CHEF, a cook, a caterer, anything you can use him for, do it! He also brought an assistant who was equally as pleasant and amazing.

I attended two cooking classes ( light Mexican and healthy grains) taught by Chris & Emily at the William Tally Rec Center. I highly recommend these classes. They were very informational and Chris &Emily are full of cooking knowledge which they share. We made several recipes and sampled our finished dishes. After the Mexican class, I promptly purchased a tortilla press. It is so easy to make your own corn tortillas. I would have never tried it on my own. Lori

I Was looking for something different for my wife and her sister during a visit. I saw A Private Affair on Living Social, offering a cooking class for 5. Since my wife loves to cook and her sister spent some time in culinary school I thought 'lets just give it a go." We ended up with 3 1/2 people making what turned out to be a fantastic meal - each of them taking responsibility for preparing a course under Chef Jackie's guidance and watchful eye. My grand niece made the salad (and Chef Jackie was great in keeping her on task and engaged); My wife did the potatoes au gratin; another friend did the pork chops and my sister-in-law made the chocolate moose. It was a lot of fun watching them but not as much as they seemed to be having. The menu options were great, the food was different and unique and everybody learned something new. Most importantly my stock went up for being the guy who gave his girl a cool and different gift. Pay attention gents! This one was worth it!

I flew into town to plan my father's memorial. Mom wanted food delivered, set up, and kept tidy. We ordered from Wegman's and hired Chef Celestine. From the first contact with Sweet Bazil, staff were thorough professionals, confirming details and keeping phone appointments. Chef Celestine talked me through everything I should consider and I opted for her coffee tea station and sterno warmers, along with three extra hours of her day. At first I wondered what she would be doing the whole time, but was so glad I had Chef's helping hands. She washed and replenished, and repacked food, so that at the end, there was literally nothing for me to do! If I lived here, I would definitely find an event for her to actually cook for. But for our family gathering of 40, this Helping Hand service really lightened my load.

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

I have tried her chilli, steak, and stuffed bread she made back in high school her cooking is amazing for someone her age, especially considering she is younger than. She has made numerous drinks that I've enjoyed but my personal favorite would be the Sangria she made for our family reunion picnic this past summer. If you haven't tried anything of hers, it's an absolute must! You will not be disappointed!

We have a small office in Waynesboro where each year we get together to enjoy a small Christmas party complete with a Christmas dinner style luncheon. This year our budget was very strict so we were having a hard time finding a caterer and were thinking we would have to try and cook the meal ourselves and then bring it to work and try to keep it warm for lunch. and then I found thumbtack and through them we discovered the amazing Lil' Blue Cafe. Pamela came to us with her son and provided us with a delicious Christmas dinner style meal. The turkey and ham were so delicious and tender! The mashed potatoes and gravy were amazing! And my favorite was the mouthwatering macaroni and cheese! We were also treated with green beans, sweet potato with marshmallow topping and dinner rolls and cranberry relish. Everything was just so tasty that all of us are hoping and planning to invite her to cater again and again for next year. Thank you so much for being willing to come over the mountain and spoil us with your delicious cooking. Best.Christmas Party Meal. Ever!

I thoroughly enjoyed my coooking class with Manjiri! She was fantastic at explaining and also demonstrating the cooking techniques. The recipes were easy to follow and I was able to recreate them at home easily. Best part was that the food was delicious!! My daughter and I love the flavors of Indian food and Manjiri's dishes were comparable to food cooked at a high quality restaurant. I highly recommend her cooking class, you will love her!!

I was being trained by Catherine years ago and I said something about " No pain, no gain " as she corrected my posture during the routine. She quickly said that no one should experience "pain" when working out. I knew then that I had FINALLY found a REAL trainer. Catherine's training and professional skills are unmatched. She simply loves doing what she does and it shows. She trains you according to your skill level and ability, and she is never distracted by today's tech gadgets ,( cellphones) which means you get 100% of her time, every time. I moved out of state for a short time and invited Catherine down for a visit and workout of course. she could not out run me on the beach, but she whipped my butt in the gym , but they were good workouts. Later on during her visit, she took me to the market and taught me how to properly shop for quality organic foods , and quickly made a knock out dish for me and my friend as we looked on and took notes. I moved back to the DMV area, reconnected with her and now I am receiving weekly healthy meals from her. Boy is that a relief. And knowing that she is a certified nutritionist only adds to her credibility. In short, if you are looking for true quality in a trainer as well as someone too cook healthy meals for you, Catherine is the hands down choice and that's why I give her 5 stars. Keep up the good work Catherine. Mark Stith Silver Spring, MD

I hired Dani to cater a large work lunch at the non profit think tank where I work. She did an AMAZING job. She was extremely responsive, easy to schedule with (even when I sent her the wrong date), showed up early, and stayed throughout the lunch to make sure everything ran smoothly. Her food was delicious and easily catered to a range of dietary restrictions. About 90-100 people showed up (I had asked for catering for 70) and there were even leftovers. I can't recommend her enough! She has since come back for multiple events. Everyone at work has raved about her cooking.

Culinary Chick provided dinner for my father’s 86th birthday. After his first bite he said and I quote “now this lady knows how to cook!”. We enjoyed every bit of our Italian dinner and fun was had by all! I will definitely use her for future occasions.

The other night the cook came to my house to let my wife and I to try samples of her work and we loved it. So we had her cook dinner tonight for us and it was beyond amazing! She is extremely talented and she really does care about her customers. It is very apparent she isn't just in it for the money. She was very professional and she arrived exactly on time. If you really want the best call Russian Dragon.

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.
