Chris and Meredith were fantastic! We'd book them again in a heartbeat. We had the Henrys cook a dinner for a group of 9 for New Year's Eve and both the food and the service were great. They were friendly, attentive, and very focused on giving us and our guests the best possible experience. Thanks Chris and Meredith!

Tanya came to our house to do a wedding shower brunch for my daughter. She came very early (and had driven 2 hours to get here, and worked methodically, quietly, and with a smile. She then served the most AWESOME multi course menu.. we were all totally awed as course after course came out! Afterwards, she cleaned so thoroughly my daughter commented that she had never seen my island so clean! She left the same way she came and we had one of the best, most relaxing home parties we have ever had. I HIGHLY recommend Tanya, her cooking, her professional demeanor - the whole package to anyone who is lucky enough to employ her!

We were absolutely ecstatic about the Catering job Chef Paul and Teresa did for us to celebrate my Mom’s 75th birthday. What a great idea to hire a team of individuals who will bring the grill and all necessities needed for an enjoyable day of catered bliss. The day started early for this fantastic duo. From food preparation, set-up, cooking/grilling, presentation, and clean-up, Chef Paul and Teresa were professional, timely, and organized while putting out the most delicious of foods! The special touches, such as birthday platter made for the guest of honor (even personally sung by the Chef), was sincerely appreciated. We were all able to enjoy a perfect day with family, friends and good food, without having to slave in the kitchen all day (or prep/clean-up). Thank you Chef Paul and Teresa! We would highly recommend you and hope we can do this again soon.

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.

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.

    Never a bad meal with Eric. His knowledge and skills-- and his heart-- show in his food, and he's not afraid of suggestions. All told, a very personal touch in all he cooks.

      Ellen has cooked many meals for me. They are all incredibly delicious. She uses fresh and local ingredients and she is innovative in making healthy food tasty. Recently she made a Thai Shrimp soup that was perfectly spiced. She can accommodate any special requirements. Ellen is well versed in alternative options. She knows how to cook gluten free and often uses sugar alternatives in baking. I can't wait to taste the next creation she makes.

      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.
