Finger foods were provided for a shower at my home. Chef Scott worked with me to develop a menu that had a number of gluten free items and some great variety. The dishes were excellent! Everyone remarked about the delicious food. Thanks for a successful event Chef Scott.

I have used Shef Shaun for every major occasion that I want to impress my wife and friends for the last 6 years. His attention to detail, product and presentation are unmatched in the city of Pittsburgh. He is reasonably price and can make the average guy feel like a millionaire with his fully customizable private in home chef experience.

My daughter and I enjoyed learning some valuable cooking tips and recipes from Chef Art. We made a variety of cuisines, as well as put the grill to use, plus finished it off with a simple yet delicious dessert. It was great to add some new, healthy, and fresh ideas to our cooking repertoire. We would highly recommend Chef Art and Around the World catering and cooking classes. Kim and Marianne Abdalah

Searching for a trainer was hard for me, I wanted someone who is educated and could answer any questions that came up. After finding him on the Tumbtack app, I noticed he had multiple degrees and he was also a chef! So I hired him and after the first day I could tell he was truly something special. His knowledge and his workouts are something I look forward to each week. I would have Nick live in my guesthouse if I could! That’s how good he is. He is always coming up with different workouts and is always supplying me with healthy recipes to cook right after our workouts! He is fantastic and I couldn’t recommend him more!

I used Green Light Meals to cater a private family dinner to celebrate my wife’s 75th birthday. The entire family came home for the weekend to surprise her...and we did. However, we have a wide variety of food requirements within our family...medical gluten free, vegetarian, no sugar or artificial sweeteners, and no red meat. Green Light Meals customized the dinner with various entrees that met everyone’s personal selections. The food was excellent and the customer service was outstanding...including delivering the entire meal on Sunday of a long holiday weekend. The Hors D’Oeuvres, Salad, Entrees, and Side Vegetable Dishes all complimented each other. And the custom, gluten-free, three-layer white cake with with white icing was a real hit. With full confidence, I can highly recommend Green Light Meals.

Hello, my name is Trevor Weingartner. It is my pleasure to meet you. My wife and I recently moved to the Robinson/Airport area. My wife is a behavior specialist at the Watson Institute for children with disabilities. I am an assistant food service director for Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Highschool in Coraopolis PA. I oversee the food production for the High School (approx 400 kids+ Staff). I also prepare food for special functions and for the sisters and priests living on site. I have dedicated my life to the study of international food preperation and culture. I specialize in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. I am proficient in all areas of food preparation. I am seeking a few clients to fill in my schedule. I know the pittsburgh area well, I source ingredients from local butchers, bakers, grocers and farmers in pursuit of the best ingredients available. I have child abuse/criminal background/fingerprint clearances, all clean, all current. *I have training in childhood development and am fantastic with kids. I am well versed in organic food puree and baby food prep. I prepare gluten free options routinely for the sisters and priests with many dietary restrictions at my convent accounts. I coach adults with high functioning autism at OLSH. My wife works as a Behavior Specialist and i volunteer with her. So while i have no direct care experience with children on the autism spectrum, i do have a lot of time interacting and teaching children and adults with different challenges. I work 7-2 Mon-Fri. When OLSH lets out for the summer i will be looking for clients to fill the gap of employment. If we develop a relationship i could be persuaded to come on full time depending on your situation.

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.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
