Tim was absolutely wonderful! The food was fantastic, he was extremely personable and each portion was perfectly sized so you can eat every course! Very impressed, we would hire him again. I learned new cooking skills as well from watching him in the kitchen!

Damon and his team made my daughter's birthday party go over the top. His attention to detail is beyond amazing. I explained to him that my family and I had bad experiences with mandatory caterers from venues in the past and I really wanted the food to be the correct temperature. He exceeded my expectations. The menu was amazing but the brisket stole the show. The brisket was so tender and delicious. This team is so down to earth, friendly and talkative my guests and I were very comfortable. My family was excited to find out that a team member is vegan and that catering for my vegan guests in the future would be no problem. So many people requested his information because of their personalities as well. But the ultimate seal of approval that this food was delicious was from my 80 year old Grandparents that asked me to hire him for their 64th wedding anniversary. They are from Louisiana and have been cooking since they were kids and my grandfather smokes his meat for all our family events. They both said, "his food is so delicious, we can rest this year". Damon made my event wonderful for everyone. He made my daughter a ice cream buffet with all the fixings. She said, "This is the best birthday ever" His professionalism blew me away, the presentation was amazing. I am still over the moon with how the event went last night.

Michele has been creating a week's worth of vegan meals for me......and they are delicious!! For someone like me who detests everything about cooking, having someone that understands nutrition and flavor and can create dishes with value, well, that's priceless. Michele is a GEM!

Amee provided a private cooking class for me, my mom and my sister for my birthday. She developed a menu of foods I and was flexible as to the time of the class. She was well-prepared, professional, and answered all of our many, many questions. She is fun, too! It was exactly what I was looking for.

I reached out on Thumbtack for someone who could give my brother some recipes and inspiration to make a medically-indicated, highly restrictive diet more manageable (my husband's and my graduation present to him). Mary responded with a couple of format options that we could choose from, and, with input from my brother, we settled on a cooking lesson in her home. My brother provided her with his list of dietary restrictions and diet history before the appointment. Based on this information, she gave him recipes and ideas and made several dishes for him to try. I was glad our mom could go along as well, since she is the main cook in his life and he is still at home for now (I live out of state). My brother said Mary was very friendly, helpful, and encouraging, and couldn't think of anything that could have gone better. "I would say five stars." Although I wasn't able to be there, I can tell he was encouraged, and that is exactly what I was hoping for. I was also thankful for Mary's helpfulness and patience with my three-way correspondence while I worked on getting this coordinated. She was supportive and professional from beginning to end.

    We hosted a staff holiday party at my house. Appetizers and desserts. Everything was displayed beautifully and the food was outstanding. Not a crumb was left. I also did not have to lift a finger. Platters and displays where always full and areas where spotless. I would recommend Vicky to everyone.

    I retained the services of Intimate Solutions for my summer wedding. I was located out of state and made all of my wedding plans virtually and over the phone. I was more than pleased with the service I received from Dennis and his staff. He prepared wonderful delicious dishes for my guest and his staff provided first-class service. Many of my guest gave compliments on how good the food tasted. I don't think there was any food left. left! Dennis and his staff served my husband and I with class and excellence. Intimate Solutions added to the beauty of our day by eliminating all the stress that many brides worry over about their special day. Thank you Dennis! Tracy Washington-Crumby

        Following my second heart attack in 2000, I decided to adopt the Dean Ornish Heart Reversal Diet, It is a very difficult plant based diet with many restrictions and requirements. My wife could not adapt her cooking to it but luckily I found Pam Wolf. She has been providing me with a variety and nutritious meals for the past 18 years. I could not have done it without Pam.

        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.
