I love to cook but there are days when I have so much running around to do that at the end of the day I just don’t have the time to prepare a meal. A friend told me about The Comfort Queen and how they can prep your food or deliver food to your door even cook with/for you and your family. Although skeptical I gave them a call and spoke to Michelle. She’s lively to say the least and even more so in person but we hit it off great. The prices we discussed for her services are quite reasonable and truthfully I know I spend more than that dining outside. I decided to try the Spicy Shrimp Empanadas and Oxtail Stew in red wine with capers. We arranged a time for the following week and right on schedule Michelle arrived. I showed her the kitchen and she instantly started to organize my prepared food and it smelled amazing. All I can say is even before Michelle left half of the shrimp empanadas were devoured by my family. To say that Michelle did her thing would definitely be a gross understatement. I’m already looking at setting up one of her family classes so we can cook together. Thanks Michelle and thanks to the Comfort Queen.

We used Mediterranean Catering for my parents 30th anniversary party last weekend and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Angelo provided a fantastic spread of Italian cuisine that all of my guests raved about! The food was delicious and the presentation was flawless! I will definitely be using Mediterranean Catering for all of our future events!

    Kim catered a golf tournament for 100 people. The meal was for dinner and she came on site and cooked everything fresh that afternoon. The menu selection was custom to our wants and budget and was phenomenal! Everyone was raving about the food and ambiance for a golf tournament. She went that extra mile to really make it special. Definitely booking her for next year.

    I will cook or bake for you. I am specializing in soul food and desserts (Northeast PA). Hello, my name is Asia. I will come and cook or bake for you. For instance, if you’re having a big dinner, a baby shower, or a bridal shower, or you just don't feel like cooking and you want to try something different, I'm the one for you. I specialize in soul food (fried chicken, baked turkey, fried green tomatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, candied yams, collard greens, cabbage, deep fried turkey wings, sweet potato honey cornbread stuffing, apple gravy porkchops, and more), but I can make regular stuff too like spaghetti, steak, and baked tilapia. I also specialize in desserts. I make about 20 different cakes (Oreo cake, chocolate chip cookie cake, blue velvet cake, red velvet, banana pudding cake, cotton candy cake, pina colada surprise cake, sweet potato cake, carrot cake, and sock it to me pistachio pound cake, just to name a few. I also make pies: sweet potato cheese cake pie and banana pineapple cream pie. The list goes on and on. I just love to cook! My prices are very reasonable. We can work something out, and I can either bring the food cooked to you or either come and cook it at your place. Whichever works for you, we can work it out! I want you to know that I do have my ServeSafe certificate, and I was in the Scranton Times for winning the flavor of the week contest, for my delicious "fried green tomatoes." I hope to hear from you, and I also help with planning baby showers, wedding showers and anniversary parties. Oh, and also, if you want to surprise someone with a homemade meal and want to pretend that you made it, I'm fine with that too. If you have any questions, just give me a call or a text. I will travel a little further if the need is really there! Thanks, and I appreciate you so much for taking the time to read this ad. Take care!

    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.
