I follow a vegetarian diet. Out of ideas and eating the same thing over and over, James taught me to cook a new way and taught me how to cook things I had never attempted to cook before, I even found myself enjoying the experience. He was patience with me and did not mind repeating when I had trouble understanding. I highly recommend the services of James Clary. Excellent Chef and teacher!


Well I don't know a lot of people who cooks food for humans and animals, it makes me so happy seeing a smile on a face that loves my food and a animals that just wants more of my food that makes me very happy, it just means that I am doing something right, when I pet sit animals I make sure to always make them a treat before I go back home same with the owner of the home I will bake them something before them arrive home.


Hello, my name is chef Stephen McLaughlin. I have been a professional cook and/or chef for over 15 years. I have worked in five-star/five-diamond and James Beard awarded kitchens. I am classically trained in French technique but have extensive knowledge in world cuisines and modern technique. Now, I am offering my services as a private chef and caterer. If you are looking for someone to prepare meals on a daily basis or a week at a time or wanting to host a private dinner party or perhaps a wedding, I am your chef. Please call. I offer free consultation and service Springfield, Branson and most of southwest Missouri.

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.
