"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

We were very pleased with the evening. From the variety of the hors d’oeuvres to the “pasta show” to the service and quality of all the food, we couldn’t have been more pleased. We thought the number of helpers was very appropriate and we were extremely impressed with the bartender's ability to bartend, serve hors d’oeuvres, take responsibility for the table – and all graciously and with a smile. What a difference that makes at a party! NY Catering was a pleasure to deal with!

Chef Charly was phenomenal! He was very easy to work with and accommodated all of my food allergies as well as my friends whole 30 diet. The food was delicious and the presentation was superb. He gave me ideas on how I should go about planning my surprise dinner date and it was better than I could have ever imagined. He was very professional and personable. I look forward to having him prepare several meals in the future!

Every year, our family gets together from SF, NYC and Austin TX. Recently, we elected to source a chef to help facilitate our big saturday night evening. One this night, there are 20 people under the roof and two dogs. Chef Dan and his fiance were superb. As anyone w a large family can attest, there are usually last-second snags. Chef Dan accomodated these schedule adjustments in stride. He arrived on time (early actually). He quickly surveyed the scene and was super accomodating of the toddlers running around complicating his efforts. He took it in stride and even played with the little ones. The food was outstanding. We have many unique diets in the family and Chef Dan accomodated all of them. When the gluten-free macnchhese hit the table, my niece shrieked in joy. I didnt ask Chef Dan for gluten free macncheese, he took the initiative based on our discussions prior to the event. On that note, Chef Dan was very easy to get a hold of prior to the event. Back to the food which was on point: the food was great! My family has picky eaters and there were no bad reviews. Id be happy to highlight the dishes we selected if requested. The scallops were seared to perfection and the lamb chops were spot on. Lastly, we didnt have to lift a finger. The service was on point.

We loved the services and food catered by Kulinary Kings. They catered food for our 125 guest consisting of a variety of backyard BBQ foods. Our guest loved the roasted corn, the salmon pasta salad and the macaroni and cheese and chicken and beef skewers to name a few. Even more than the food, the service was great- we also requested servers and a bar tender and I must say all were on point and attentive to our guest. I would recommend This cater and will definitely use him again!

Nick from F.I.G. Catering was an awesome one man show! We had an event of about 40 people and everyone raved about the food. He came prepared with more than enough food, beautiful serve ware and was more than happy to tweak items for guests with diet restrictions. He also was more than happy to jump in and help with other items that were outside the scope of the menu we discussed like cutting the cake etc. I’m so happy we went with Nick and his company and would definitely recommend.

When I first met Erika, I had just set out to attempt my first ever sprint triathlon. Up to that point, I had been exercising on my own and lost over 100 lbs. I still needed lots of training and only 8 weeks until the race. What Erika then did for me was above and beyond what I could have done on my own. We began training; building powerful muscles and developing balance and stability. She even helped with nutrition planning and recovery tips. I completed my first sprint triathlon but felt my result was lackluster. For a first timer, this was normal. The next day I quickly signed up for another sprint triathlon for that summer. Once we began training for that, Erika amazed me yet again. The training sessions became much more intense. She provided solid motivation to keep up my mental strength. We built lots of explosive muscle and incredible cardio stamina. I finished the 2nd triathlon in the top 50% overall. It felt amazing. The training also translated well in my other hobby, soccer. The results were very real.

You won't find a better trainer if you are wanting / needing any of the following from your training regimen: 1) routines designed around areas of weakness, injury, or physical limitations 2) stretching & flexibility routines 3) athletic performance (any age....I'm in my 40's) 3) nutritional counseling & meal planning 4) RESULTS that you can see & feel!

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 a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
