We are very pleased with our choice of Frank to do the job of putting together and installing our IKEA kitchen. Anyone who has put together IKEA furniture before knows it's quite a task! He is a family-owned business and works wonderfully with his son and wife. It was a pleasure getting to know them, all while watching our kitchen come together! Frank is thorough and precise about his decisions, always making sure we were happy. He saved us a good chunk of money, costing significantly less than the cost of the IKEA installers, while still doing a professional job. Best of all, we created a friendship with him and his family. They were so sweet to our 5 & 2 year old sons and were beyond trustworthy. Sometimes when you hire someone to do work in your home that requires a few days to accomplish, you can't wait to just have it done and have 'strangers' out of your house. I can honestly say that it was hard to say goodbye to him and his family when the job was done. Thank you Frank! We would do it all over again if we had to. We will add photos of the finished kitchen when our backsplash is done later this week!

Carmen was excellent! She catered my wedding of about 100 people. The food was excellent and her and her staff were very professional. The kitchen was cleaner than when she arrived. She had plates ready for me and the groom set apart of the guests which was very special for us. She was always quick to respond to my questions and had some great suggestions. Couldn't of asked for a better experience.

Chef Tyler catered a small dinner party I attended recently. It was an amazing mix of classy yet met the casual feel of our group. We enjoyed meeting the chefs and their professionalism was top notch! The food was to die for and I tried foods that I have never eaten in my life and tried a spin on foods that I love! I would recommend Chef Tyler for any event you are looking to cater.

Right from the start Sue was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to my questions as I was deciding on who to cater my daughter's wedding. Her confidence and accommodating manner won me over and I decided to go with Roosterdoodles for the big day. The selections to choose from for my menu were incredible. There was so much to choose from. I was able to choose just the perfect mix of food for the guests we were having. She made a trip to Clifton Park to meet me, see the venue,and offereed suggestions as to the table set up, etc. AS we neared the day, she responded with confirmations and asked if there was anything else she could help me with, like the cake and favors. I described the cake I was looking for and she said she could do anything. I decided to go with her for it, so she did everything. IShe offered some suggestions I did not want and I was very specific about what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she arrived with a small crew and delivered. She called to let me know exactly when she would be arriving and was on time. She and her crew worked the whole event, tending to the buffet and preparing the dessert table and clearing the buffet food. The presentation was gorgeous for everything, very classy. The mediterranean platter was unbelievable. The beef brisket was so tender, not tough like you often get with large quantities. The chicken was also incredibly tender and juicy, just perfect. The flavors of her sauces were mouth watering and obviously home made. The food was delicious. Everyone at my table all ask who catered. THey said it was the best wedding food they ever had. One guest said he rarely saw the quality of food that we had and he is global traveler by trade. Later that day and even the next two days, as I ran into friends and family, everyone commented on how amazing the food was. Some attended a wedding at a very popular country club in the area and they all agreed that my wedding was superior, both in the event itself and in the food. Susan's price was very reasonable, the service was excellent, and the food was out of this world. The cake was something like I had seen on pinterest. It was exactly what I wanted, even better! I will definately use Susan again. I can't wait to taste her other dishes. I may even make a trip to Cairo to visit her cafe. I know it would be worth the trip. I highly recommend Roosterdoodles for your event. You won't regret it!

Jessica whipped up a dinner for 10 at our place. The appetizers and dinner were fantastic. Jessica was a bundle of energy and on the go from the time she arrived until the time she left. Not only was she our chef, but server and cleaned up as well. We did 3 appetizers; shrimp cocktail, stuffed mushrooms and caprese salads. It was probably too much for 10 people but each one of them was terrific. Caesar salad proceeded our dinner of filet mignon with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. Your guests will love the food.

We had a phenomenal experience working with Top Hat and Liane. Liane and her staff showed up early to prepare giving us a lot of comfort. The food was phenomenal, as everyone loved the meal. We were able to customize the menu to our liking. The service with the bartender/server and chef were incredible. All in all, the event experience with Top Hat exceeded our expectations and we will most certainly use Liane and team again in the future. She took all the stress out of planning our first party.

I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.

I was very fortuate to attend an Engagement Announcement Party planned and executed by the DIN events, llc company; in Charlotte, North Carolina. The entire experience was extremely extravagant and very very professionally done. The Event Location was beautifully decorated and enviting. There was a feeling of warmth and love in the air. The Caterer selected was outstanding!!!! The desserts that were prepared by the Dessert Chef were absolutely scrumptious. Ms. Smith's entire staff were pleasant and each guest were made to feel special. I always arrive at events early and upon my arrival the staff was in place. Ms. Smith has a natural warmth and a beautiful inviting smile; as you can tell she loves the profession she's chosen.

Chef Jamarr created a fantastic meal for my wife’s 40th birthday. We had 13 guests, some were vegetarians & some were gluten sensitive, but Chef Jamarr came into our home and made a delicious meal that everyone raved about. The salmon dish was on point and the eggplant parmigiana was the best I’ve ever had. Chef was on time and professional. I would highly recommend his services. Joe F. - Wilmington

I have had the privilege to know Chef Bou and (even better) to have been able to dine in his creations. His food is prepared with so much passion and you truly experience that in the taste. His expertise and knowledge comes through when watching him (or helping) him prepare a meal, as he is always ready to teach some little tips and tricks. You will NOT be disappointed with his services!

Chef Graham and his staff provided us with a fantastic array of food for our backyard luau. From the very beginning to the very end, Chef Graham was wonderful to work with. He helped us design a menu that fit our theme, listened to our needs, worked within our budget and then went above and beyond by making an amazing display of fabulous food. In addition, he generously added a few extra dishes to our menu that he thought our guests would enjoy. The party was a huge success and our guests all raved about how wonderful the food was! In addition, we had Marcus as our bartender and all our guests loved him too! In fact, my husband was thrilled that every time he headed back to the bar, Marcus was ready for him with his choice of beverage...big kudos!!! Thank you Chef Graham and your wonderful staff for making our backyard luau such a memorable 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.

      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.
