I have had the wonderful experience of cooking classes with Zacki. I find her to be very organized, articulate and creative. Not only does she provide wonderful recipes, but her eye for presentation and detail is amazing! Zacki is very kind and personable and has many years of experience in the field of personal chef/catering. She truly cares about sharing her knowledge and passion for great food and entertaining! I have seen photos of her catering events and feel she has an incredible talent for setting the tone with her food and drink presentation. Her catering talents would make any event a special event!

Emma was prompt to respond to questions for a cooking class/meal prep for vegan diet. It was a gift and my daughter was very pleased with the food and the learning. Great to work with Emma.

I worked with Teresa over the phone from Boston as she lives near my parents who recently retired to Raleigh. She planned a cooking class for my parents to introduce new and delicious ideas catering to a very restrictive diet they have for health reasons. My parents loved it! Teresa was very patient with scheduling everything, had strong follow through, is very professional and according to my parents was fun to work with. Thank you, Teresa!!!

Chef Tim provided me services for my Housewarming/Blessing. I had a Sunday Brunch where Chef Tim made delicious cook to order omelets and waffles. My family loved his friendly personality and I appreciated his set up, clean up and organization assistance. He was professional while being a delight to work with at a stressful time. I would STRONGLY recommend him for any event.

    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.
