Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

Charly was great! The food was equally as great! We made a minor (more like major) mistake or requesting Charly for a dinner for 4 people, where we actually needed it for 6! When Charly came over to start preparing, we realized we needed more food! Charly was quick to figure out how to make the courses work out with the food he already brought - he says he always comes prepared with extras! He even had extra menus, so that also worked out! He was also a good sport about stepping out with us on a quick supermarket trip and buy some extra main courses :-). All-in-all, we were impressed by his patience and preparedness even before he started cooking. As for the cooking, he prepared an amazing meal and his presentation of food is incredible! Like going to a Michelin restaurant at home. Hands down the best Chocolate lava cake we've ever had!!! Thanks Charly!!

My husband gave to me one 3-hours-class with Erika! More than a cooking class, I had the opportunity to talk and share ideas with someone that knows a lot about healthy food! That was great and exactly what I was looking for! During the class, I was able to raise all my doubts! Of course we prepared delicious recipes, but more important than this Erika shared all her knowledge! She gave me new ideas to improve my cooking and to prepare better (and delicious) food! Thank you, Erika! It was an amazing experience!

via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!

My friend and I took cooking classes from her. I can truly say that she was amazing. She taught us to make food we wanted to learn and it turned out amazing. She is a great teacher and makes it easy to apply what you learn from her and the things you learn in class to other recipes outside of what we did in class. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to cook.

What an AMAZING experience! I planned a surprise birthday party with dinner for 4 couples at our home and I cannot express how wonderful the evening was. Chef Francis was a pleasure to deal with from the begging of the process. We had several allergies to take into consideration and Francis gave us many menu choices that would work. In the end, the menu we chose and the food he prepared was amazing. Chef arrived as scheduled, he was so easy to work with and prepared some amazing dishes. Not only did he prepare, serve, clear every course and clean, he spent time talking about each amazing dish and made our guests feel like royalty. In the end, we had one of the best dinner parties ever and we do quite a few. The mood was perfect, the food amazing and Francis could not have been easier to work with. We would give him 6+ stars if we were able to and will most definitely be using his services again.

Chef Flo was invited to my apartment for a surprise birthday dinner. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much - but boy, oh boy, were we in for a treat!! Florvil Chef Flo Valdez fed us the best poached shrimp salad (I've ever had), the best chicken florentine (I've ever had) and a chocolate mousse creme brulee (I've ever had)!!! From the crushing of the pistachios to the torching of the mousse, you can see first hand that Chef Flo pours his love into his cooking. It's an awesome experience all around - to witness the magic happen, to be served by him and to experience it first hand! It was truly an once in a lifetime opportunity. I would LOVE to host dinner parties, maybe even cooking classes with Chef Flo in the future. He left a lasting impression and even inspired us to become chefs ourselves. In fact, I tried replicating his chicken florentine the following day but I'll save that story for another time. If you are thinking about booking Chef Flo, there's nothing to think about, just do it. Not for a second will you regret it! Thank you Chef Flo for such an amazing experience. BON APPETITE!

Jennifer was prompt in her response to my inquiry about a holiday meal/cooking class, creative in coming up with solutions to meet our family member's dietary constraints, and very easy to work with in planning the menu. Her prices are very reasonable! The food was very good and we had fun watching and helping a bit with the preparation. We would recommend her.

Private Cooking class. Lauren was unbelievable re response time, energy and professionalism. We've yet to take the class but know if it's half the initial experience it will be well worth the money.

I had a wonderful cooking class with Chef Michael Molleda. We chose a menu and he sent me the recipes in advance. He taught me how to prepare a variety of dishes. He made it easy, fun and the food was delicious. We plan on hiring him again!!

I have hired Chef Jackie Newgent to cater a party of mine in the past; everything she made was so fresh and delicious! All dishes were beautifully presented. I finally had time to take a private cooking class from her and was equally impressed. I now know the right way to hold a chef's knife, slice scallions on a bias and "cream" garlic. Cooking with Chef Jackie is a fun experience! I highly recommend both her personal chef work AND her private cooking lessons!

Megan is a remarkable chef and exceptional teacher. We hired her for a private cooking class and she went above and beyond to plan - and instruct - a lesson that far exceeded our expectations. We learned a ton and had so much fun in the process!

We had a cooking lesson with chef Sterling, with three friends it was a total blast. It was like a collage class but real fun. We learned all the basics, cutting, sautéing, roasting. The music made us relax. We can’t wait for our next class.

I took Dorina’s Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina’s emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

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.
