I took a cooking class from Bonnie, at her home in Portland. It was a comfortable environment, that class was customized for me, and I learned A LOT about basics like breakfast, sauces, and soups. I had a great time, and plan to attend more classes, and bring along friends. And, let me not forget, everything was DELICIOUS!

The event was a plant based cooking class with 10 people preparing a Mexican dinner. Everyone took on at least 2 different dishes and we shared the meal at the end. It was a good group that interacted well with each other and we had a lot of fun. Emily cruised through the different stations answering questions and helping people with their dishes. She spoke with confidence and authority on nutritional facts and food preparation while keeping it light hearted and enjoyable.I would not hesitate a moment to take another one of her classes.

Freedom's yoga classes at Studio Modern Yoga are quite refreshing and always a nice dose of fun. The approach is delightfully unique and catered to the needs of those in attendance. If you have a physical injury, she'll make sure to check in with you before sending you into a potentially painful pose. She's always been early and patiently waiting for attendees. Even having only occasionally done yoga for the past few years, she's got me doing inversions like I'm a regular practitioner. Freedom radiates a caring and loving energy, and is a pure delight to be around. Best vinyasa yoga teacher I've ever had!

I have had one cooking lesson with Nathan and it was a blast! He is teaching me the fundementals of cooking by breaking the classes down into different types of proteins. He is completely open minded about how the class will be organized and what he will teach you. The learning curve is steep when you are learning techniques in your kitchen, with all your own cooking tools.

Jane is an exceptional chef, and was able to prepare me very specialized meals for a healing diet I was on. I felt my stress melt away each time she came to cook, and the meals were delicious! The variety of dishes she made was wonderful - so many things I never would have thought to prepare myself. Thanks Jane!

    Marc Frech of Spark is not only an experienced and talented chef he has the gift for teaching. Our group enjoyed his company and conversation just as much as the cooking instruction and joy of eating it together. The 3 course dinner had some very sophisticated flavors and texture but not too complicated. Real food, real fresh, and after this class even I could make it and so will. I highly recommend Marc. It was a very enjoyable evening.

    Gabriel led an enjoyable and informative cooking class with a focus on zero food waste for our company activity. We learned how to break down and roast whole chickens and make mushroom risotto. There were a total of about 35 of us and my colleagues are still talking about what a great time they had. I highly recommend Gabriel to anyone looking for an engaging and fun culinary adventure.

        Brittany Baldwin of Portland Home Chef is an inspiring and encouraging teacher. She listened to what my needs, objectives, fears and competencies/challenges are and then created a learning menu designed to give me just what I needed. I wish I could have her in my home every night cooking with me! I came away from our session empowered about my capacity to prepare delicious, nourishing food for my son and me. I have new skills and insights--and recipes--and a renewed sense of fun about being in my kitchen. And now, every time my son (who is 2) eats something that tastes good, he asks if Brittany has prepared it. Plus, Brittany is a wonderful, easygoing person who is just enjoyable to have in your kitchen. This is an extraordinary value.

        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.
