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.

This class was amazing! Chef Moss was a great teacher. I learned to make some outstanding dishes. He is very knowledgable and was able to explain the why and how behind the cooking process for each dish we prepared. It was such an amazing cooking class! I highly recommend it!

Nirva gave me a “basic skills” cooking class ahead of me going off to grad school. She was punctual, prepared and really accommodated my needs. For example, because I won’t have much time in school, she focused on teaching me versatile techniques that I could use to make various dishes in a way that is both tasty and quick. Highly recommend!
