“A great time was had by all” – at a "hands-on" cooking class that Chef Tyler did for 16 future homeowners at Trilogy Lake Norman. We asked him to design a cooking lesson, advertised it to our future home owners, gave him access to one of the kitchens in our Model Gallery, and he just did his thing. WOW! The follow-up questionnaires rated the event 9.4 for “fun”, 9.5 for “Chef’s knowledge”. How do you follow that? Simple - We are scheduling additional “Cooking Classes with Chef Tyler!”

Jessica Luntz is a professional who is organized, experienced, communicative and did I mention she can cook! I totally enjoyed the experience with Jessica and Saucy Spoon Cooking from the beginning stages of selecting a menu to the end where after the meal she left the kitchen immaculate. I would encourage anyone considering a chef led cooking class/demonstration or dinner party to contact Jessica immediately!

My coworkers and I had a GREAT time during our cooking class with The Cook Nook. Catherine was very professional and knowledgeable , she was very helpful, and made the class fun. We learned how to correctly hold a knife, chop vegetables, and my favorite part, make homemade egg rolls! I’d recommend Catherine and The Cook Nook 1,000%!!

We used Cooking with Joya for a corporate breakfast event celebrating our admins. It was delicious! Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and asked if we could use her again in the future. The answer was definitely yes! She was on time, easy to work with and very professional. Would highly recommend Cooking with Joya for their next catered event.

Terique of Epps Bistro has done several jobs for me. He is my go to for all things food. Our first job was a small lunch with coworkers. I gave him a time to be there, a few diet restrictions and a very brief conversation about what we might enjoy. Honestly the rest was magic! He brings delicious choices sets it all up masterfully, serves with such gentle attention that he's sort of there always checking that all is well, but not intrusive. Then he cleans puts everything as it was and its as if he was never there. Well, except for the memories of great food, attentive service and the question I always have "what else can you do?" We recently hired him to cater a four day beach house event for eight of us. I wondered how it would be living with our chef. It was fantastic! We all had great food. Coffee was made when we awoke, creative breakfast options. Informal lunches and fresh delicious dinners. It was a fabulous four days and again...yummy memories. His talents are quickly recognized and appreciated as I now happily see him catering for gatherings that I had nothing to do with. I guess we all know quality when we see it. Our latest EB food obsession is his turkey and chicken meatballs. My family loves them. So I just have him on a delivery schedule, (oh and his fratatas) and our fridge is always stocked. This guy is so easy to work with. You'll love his quite humor. A+ operation.

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

My family enjoyed a variety of kid friendly entrées cooked by Chef Jmarr. A single working mom with 4 kids I need all the help I can get in all aspects of my household. I decided to NOT stock my fridge up with pizza rolls and overly processed food. Chef gave us a few options to choose from. My kids really enjoyed homemade hummus snack trays and the entree of roasted chicken, mashed potatoes with a veggie melody. I was very impressed with food menu and professionalism! I have set up my next few appointments and we came up with a several meal plans for back to school lunches and dinners. Thank you chef for making my life easier.

I took culinary classes from Chef Bou for two years in a large group, public school setting. His lessons were always fun, engaging, and well-paced. I never felt like we were doing too much too quickly. His patience in dealing with a room full of high schoolers was always outstanding. I would recommend Chef Bou to anyone who wants to learn more about the culinary arts, whether you are a beginner or an expert!

    NO ONE cooks like Deborah! She has catered holiday lunches for 50 or more of my employees for years and everyone loves the food! They may be stuffed afterwards but they sure look happy!

        About

        Hello, my name is Latasha. Cooking is my life. When I am in the kitchen, I come alive. When I prepare meals, they are absolutely enjoyed. I specialize in American food, and not limited to Italian meals. Since January 2014, I found out I have a soy allergy, so I learned to cook soy free and also make soy free juice and sodas. I admit my place is the kitchen.

        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.
