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.

Reviews for Brooklyn cooking instructors

Working with Chef Jackie was amazing. She was very responsive to all our requests, and came up with great menu ideas that we were excited about. At the cooking class, she was organized, clear, and friendly. She made the cooking feel very low-pressure and fun, while giving us really valuable information and cooking tips. We loved everything we made, and felt really well-prepared to recreate the recipes at home. It was a fantastic experience.

We had a great dinner this evening with Aarthi! We did a private cooking class to prepare a delicious Chicken Tikka Masala dinner with three types of naan. She patiently explained the process as she guided us through preparing the meal and brought homemade spice blends and other additional ingredients that were hard for us to find. Would absolutely have her come again for future occasions!
