We had a 90th birthday party for my dad on a sunday afternoon. Just 45 people at our home but I could not have done it without Chef Jeff Catering. The menu was Chicken Parmesan, steamed green beans with red peppers (very crism and not at all over cooked), a colorful and fresh salad, dinner rolls and some of the best cookies I ever tasted (very soft and chocolatey). We also had appetizers that were very professionally created. Tracy was in charge of our party, and she was so understanding to work with as our guest list kept fluctuation (as it does when you are inviting people in this age group). The food was delicious and Tracy kept it warm without drying it out, despite the many hours that the party expanded (11:00 AM till 4:00). Many people asked for her card and even my sister-in-law, who is very picky, gave hearty compliments. Tracy was there to help no matter what needed to be done including picking up dishes throughout the house, and seving the cake that someone else brought. She was also a friendly and warm person and a joy to work with. The bill was extremely reasonable, I was very surprised. I will definitely hire Chef Jeff again.

As a mom of 4 young children, cooking had not been a priority for us. However, we realized we were spending so much money on premade grocery store meals and take out which were not healthy and expensive. We found Jess 2 years ago, and are so relieved to have fresh, healthy meals that are specific to my family's needs and preferences. Jess comes every other week to our home and cooks 5 entrees. We started of by selecting meals from a suggested list, but in the 2 years she has worked for us, Jess has listened to our preferences and dietary restrictions and has continued to come up with many new, exciting and wonderful dishes! She is reliable and flexible and has come up with sommany wonderful meals we struggle to decide which ones to choose every time!

Julia was AMAZING. She was the first baker we had a tasting with and after meeting with her we never saw anyone else! Our cupcakes were delicious and tastefully color coordinated to our wedding. She was early, brought boxes for us to pack any leftovers in, brought a gift!!, and most importantly treated us as if she's known us for years. So many of our wedding party commented how personable and pleasant she was. Thank you for everything Julia!! Tucker & Jessica Langley

Great Experience! We had issues with our first caterer up until the week of the wedding. We fired the other caterer only days before the event, after contacting Luzette. We finally got the customer service and attention we deserved. They were excellent. Extremely responsive, professional, accomodating, executed perfectly, food was great. The chef and servers made our guests feel like royalty! They really came through for us and would recommend them!!

One of the best professionals I have ever worked with. Not only is the food great every time, but the service is outstanding, deliveries timely, every detail accounted for and best of all...Steve works with you every step of the way to make sure you are at ease and everything goes as it should. We've used By Word of Mouth for corporate luncheons, employee parties, our annual Christmas party, and most recently an executive dinner featuring a 7course meal for international clients. I don't know where he gets his staff, but they are all exceptional and reflect Steve's very calm and in control demeanor, with a pleasantness that is well received by all our guests. Steve even pulled off a last minute job for 100 people for us with less than 2 days to prepare. Our "other" caterer over booked themselves leaving us high and dry. Looking back, I don't know why we didn't go with Steve in the first place. All of us here at the office would recommend Steve and his staff over and over.

We had Chef Stiles come on-site at our corporate headquarters for a one-hour cooking demonstration sponsored by our Wellness Committee. Here is some of the feedback from employees: "I am very happy that I attended because it gave me some new ideas on how to increase the healthfulness of my family's meals." "Thanks for putting this together, very worthwhile and delicious." "Chef Stiles did a good job of presenting the fact that you can have delicious food and eat healthy at the same time. I vote for other classes just like this one."

    I have worked with Francisca on many different catering events. She offers great guidance and help in planning the perfect meal. She is very professional, always comes prepared and creates delicious food. Her food is a better quality then most restaurants offer. I look forward to working with her again in the near future.

    I contacted Culinary Partners after needing a last minute caterer for a large family event. I spoke to Gerald and he was very accommodating, especially given the time frame (we're talking barely 3 days here). He arrived on time to prepare the food and everything was cooked perfectly. From the steaks to the vegetables, we couldn't have asked for a better meal. Next time we need an event catered, we will be sure to contact Gerald again, hopefully with more notice, though!

    Sue is an excellent chef and cook. When she caters an event she is professional and friendly. The pizza's we order for our garlic harvest crew are always excellent and careful attention is paid to ingredients (which I am pretty picky about). Sue is also adaptable. I know when I first knew her she sometimes used ingredients I was not very interested in but she has gleaned so much experience cooking at co-ops and local and organic food restaurants, that she knows how to cook with everything our local foodshed has to offer.

    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.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
