I had the honor of taking part in a private in home dinner featuring lead Chef Shaun Forsett. Overall: My experience was amazing. Being accustomed to small plates, tasting menu, and high end prix fixe experiences in Washington, D.C. it was a delight to have a taste of foodie heaven in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Hosted in a private Shadyside home, I experienced an amazing evening of expertly paired flavors. "Shef" Shaun is ever the professional. He was personable and knowledgeable giving step by step guidance of what he was doing. He assured us of the highest quality of his ingredients and gave a casual walk through the art of food. What left me amazed is that the food tasted as beautiful as it looked. There is nothing like having a photo worthy of Instagram depicting food worthy of praise. We began the evening with a first course of pan seared sea scallops. It was a colorful creation accented with fresh mango, endive, dill, a balsamic reduction and a beautiful basil oil. It was an energetic flavor pairing and it literally danced on my tongue. He walked us through step by step and I realized how much knowledge Shef Shaun had when explained exactly why he used every ingredient he used. Our second course was a Chili Crab Toast topped with Pickled Cucumber, Paprika Aioli, Leeks & Coriander.. Can I tell you how delightful this was? The cucumbers were freshly pickled and garnished with cilantro. As the Chef prepared this dish, he explained how he only used claw meat and for what reasons. It was like getting a cooking lesson and an fun evening all in one. And finally this amazing third course. Who the heck would think to put caviar on a grape. We has a Raspberry Coulis with Kiwi, Creme Fraiche, Grapes topped with Caviar, Sliced Almond... I will just leave that here. It was THAT amazing. I wish I could kidnap this guy and bring him to DC it's like having an amazing chef in your home whenever you need. I also think he would be good for many other intimate occasions. Or if you just want a cooking lesson, Shef Shaun was not apprehensive about sharing his knowledge. The mark of someone truly confident in his craft.

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

Michael Madigan is an awesome cook! I have had meals in his restaurants and have had him cater events in my home. His food arrived promptly and was the correct temperature. Michael was always friendly and warm and looking to make the dining experience exceptional.

      We had Rich do a live cooking demonstration on flavor profiling. Not only was Rich prepared and informative, but he was lots of fun and his food was fantastic!! I loved how Rich customized his training to our likes and needs. He was very sensitive and focused on customer satisfaction. Did I say the food was amazing!! My favorite was the coffee rub flank steak!! The smoked jalapeño potato salad, watermelon 3 ways, and pineapple dessert was fabulous!! Would definitely recommend Gastro-Smith Food Services for catering and cooking classes.

        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.
