My fiancée and I recently gifted my friends Jenny and Josh a memorable wedding dinner prepared by Chef Matt Haight in the comfort of their Maine home — a delicious four-course meal so special that we’re almost kicking ourselves for not joining them for it. Just a few weeks before Jenny and Josh’s lovely evening, I started searching online for private tapas chefs located in Maine and quickly came across Matt’s stellar résumé and contacted him immediately. Matt, who owns the Maine restaurant La Orilla, responded promptly and, from there, we landed on a date and discussed the plan for the dinner. After Matt mocked up a few dinner options for us, we selected his mouth-watering menu of a trio of oysters, scallop crudo, bone-in pork rib eye, and poached pear with sweetened goat cheese and candied pistachios (dessert), as well as a perfectly paired wine selection. Since the meal would take place during the COVID-19 pandemic, he also promised us that he'd take special precautions to ensure Jenny and Josh's comfort, including mask-wearing and testing negative for the coronavirus. Following their dinner, Jenny and Josh said that it was an "unforgettable" night, and not only lauded Matt's culinary talents, but also his friendliness and cleanliness. He created tasty dishes paired with delicious wines inside Jenny and Josh's kitchen, served them himself, engaged in friendly conversation throughout the evening, and cleaned their kitchen before leaving. Additionally, Jenny and Josh were pleased to savor the leftovers that Matt had carefully packed away for them to enjoy the rest of the week. We look forward to working with (or dining with) Chef Matt in the future!See more

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.
