"Chef Mauro has done six separate events for us personally and through our business over the last four years. He has done small intimate dinners for six in our condo in Chicago and can be discreet and professional. He has a good sense of wine pairings and he is always willing to work with us to pick the best food products. He can also be very social and he is happy to interact with our guests at larger events. He is good at explaining each course and how the food was prepared and he makes the guests feel at home and really can make your event special. We have also hired him for larger parties and fundraisers through our law practice. On one occasion we hired him to go to Colorado with our family for a ski week. He prepared the meals, after purchasing the food and wine. We would come home every night after skiing to a five-star meal with wine. He cleaned up and put everything away did the shopping and let my wife and I enjoy our family vacation and our guests without running to the City Market and doing all the clean up after a full day of skiing. The cost was actually no more then if we ate out every night at a good restaurant on the hill and the quality of the food was healthier and better prepared. My wife was impressed that Chief Mauro wasted nothing. He would do breakfest for the family and our guests and even sent us out in the morning with boxed lunches to eat on the mountain. We would highly recommend Chief Mauro for your next private event, fundraiser, or ski week. My wife and I will be happy to answer any specific questions you have. Feel free to call us at our office at 574-946-6621 or at my cell 312-218-0061. Dale and Stacey Starkes, Starkes Law Offices."

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.

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.

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.
