I wanted a fun night for myself and two of my closest friends. This was a gift for them, and I know they won't forget it. Sarah was so careful to make sure the event was customized to our liking. Everything was perfect. The wine pairings were excellent and food astounding. My group was running a little late, but that didn't stop Sarah from filling our time with valuable tips and tricks. If you want a personal experience in a comfortable setting, this is perfect! I've looked into and have seen other "cooking classes" and none of them offer the value Sarah does. I would absolutely recommend the Home Chef of NH!

I attended an event catered by Tiffany and I was totally blown away by the food, her professionalism and skills, and the overall presentation. She takes great care to be sure the food is not only delicious, but pleasing to the eye, as well. Everything was ready when she said it would be, and she was completely calm and unruffled throughout the entire event. The next time I need a caterer, I'm calling her. I'm seriously considering hiring her for her personal chef services, too -- I mean, who doesn't need a break from the kitchen every now and then, right?

I work in the Cultural department of the French Cultural Center in Boston and Aurélie has partnered with us for one of our family events, the Fete des Rois, held on January 9th. Aurelie has done an outstanding job by preparing 100% home made and from scratch, eight gorgeous galettes. They were delicious and '' even better than in France'' some attendees said. I have only worked with Aurelie for one time but I know that I would definitely contact her again for other events related to French food. or French cooking classes. She is also very friendly and sweet and it is a great pleasure to partner with her.

Serge is an extremely talented cook. He puts his heart and soul into the process, that seems so easy when he does it but so difficult to replicate! The end result: amazing dishes, so flavorful, tasty. Unusual combination of ingredients, interesting preparations! He also puts a great emphasis on cooking healthy, which is extremely important for most of us! Serge is not only a great cook, but also a very patient teacher, he enjoys the teaching and enjoys cooking for everyone.

Chef Elizabeth cooked dinner for my wife’s 70th birthday. It was such a joy to work with her. She was responsive right from the beginning - offering menu suggestions and answering the dozens of questions I threw at her. She arrived promptly at the designated hour and presented a delicious meal cooked from our kitchen at the exact time we chose. My wife was so happy that I had hired Chef Elizabeth. She was attentive and took care of everything from opening the champagne to cleaning up after the meal. She left the kitchen spotless. We plan on hiring her many more times in the future.

My two boys have taken cooking classes from Tanya the Homestyle Gourmet for years. They love her classes, camps and workshops. My 13 year old will often make cookies on his own in the evenings AND HE CLEANS UP AFTER HIMSELF! My 11 year old makes a variety of different guacamoles on his own and they both are interested in helping with meals and meal planning.

Alaina personalized the menu to our tastes. We learned a lot more about plant-based protein sources and new ideas for desserts and breakfasts. We left with enough delicious leftovers for lunches & dinners for the next few days, along with the detailed recipes. We repeated the recipes within the first week. Alaina also followed up with additional information about our questions involving cholesterol after our cooking lesson. We definitely recommend her classes for healthy, tasty meals.

My wife loves to cook but is busy with work. So I signed us up to have home cooking classes with Donna. I can't tell you how much value we got out of the class, from basic tips for myself and pro tips for my wife the experience was top notch. She even did a class with our parents. Donna is easy to work with and shopped for the ingredients we didn't have on hand. I highly recommend Donna for classes of any size.

Gary Mongero worked for us from November of 2014 to October, 2015 as a private chef, doing all of our grocery shopping and most of our cooking for lunches and dinners during the work week. Gary is a very personable, fun, eager to assist, and easy to get along with sort of person. We enjoyed working with him, and often found his suggestions on what foods to prepare, or how to prepare them, to be valuable. His skills in sourcing ingredients are superb: he was very good at finding excellent quality foods at reasonable prices, and kept in close contact with the butchers and fishmongers at our local grocery store, so that he knew what would be coming soon, and what the best current offerings were. He was very reliable at communicating about his work schedule - we were never left wondering where he was or when he’d get here; and he’d be sure to give us plenty of notice when planning absences and vacations. The meals Gary prepared for guests made him nearly legendary among our circles of friends and co-workers. When hearing that Gary would be preparing a meal for them, we consistently got a very happy smile from those in the know. We really like Gary, and are grateful for the year he was with us. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

I have known Maxwell Finn for over 3 years. He is a superb chef, having prepared a number of amazing meals for my family and extended group of friends. He is creative in both new and standard tastes. He is a careful listener, making sure that he knows what we are interested in and want to spend. He is always punctual, leaves no mess and, most importantly, has a lot of fun with his cooking. He is wonderful to work with and I heartily recommend him for meals for 4 to 400. Thank you.

I very much enjoyed my cooking session with the Chef Gerry we shopped ,made good food and the conversation was good too! I really learned a lot but most of all my confidence in what I am doing gained traction. A nice opportunity to learn with a few dinners worth of food at the end of the "class".

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.
