My 14 year old niece and I had 2 private cooking classes with Chef Rob. They were fantastic! Rob was professional, informative, and great fun. We had the perfect blend of hands on experience and demonstration. Rob has a wealth of information about ingredients, technique and healthy eating, all of which he shared with us while we cooked. Oh, and did I mention how good the food tasted?? Yum! Highly recommend Chef Rob!

Came over to teach me cooking and I was thoroughly impressed. Chef Allen is passionate about food and this radiates in his cooking and in his teaching. Very friendly personality, and more importantly, easy to work with. Loved every minute of it. Would recommend to anyone.

Chef Dave was phenomenal!! I hired him for an in-house cooking experience as a birthday gift for my boyfriend, and Dave made our evening unforgettable! We are used to eating out a lot, but Dave's dinner hit the spot and is by far the best dining experience you can find in Nashville. My boyfriend usually does not eat dessert, but he finished Dave's chocolate lava cake!! His preparation and professionalism were very impressive! I'm extremely pleased with Dave's service and will recommend him to my friends. Our menu was: App #1: Fig & Pancetta Risotto (best risotto I've had!) App #2 : Arugula and Prosciutto Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette and Parmesano Reggiano. Entree: Bourbon Braised Short Ribs w/Brown Butter Mashers & Asparagus (OMG - the short ribs were fantastic, the meat fell off the bone!) Dessert: Chocolate Lava Type Cake (to die for!) THANK YOU, Dave!

Our family had such a great time in the kitchen with Awakened Taste. It was the perfect gift to ourselves for Christmas! We learned knife skills, cooking techniques, and gained insight on incorporating healthy foods into our diet. Highly recommend!

I'm so excited to be able to share my experience of Jerilyn's cooking. Now, first off you must know I'm a meat and potatoes kind of gal, but always ready to try something new Jerilyn has come up with! Jerilyn has cooked a wonderful buffet dinner for the audience members of one of my dinner theatre productions. Amazing! All these different choices for such a divers group of people that was enjoyed by all. I have attended cooking classes where Jerilyn had a group of people in a kitchen demonstrating and preparing a meal for all to enjoy that evening. So much fun was had by all, and then to enjoy the feast I have witnessed much of the "behind the scene" work that goes on in order for these wonderful meals to be prepared. The creativeness of what she does with fresh fruits and vegetables combined with the vast knowledge she has on wholesome ingredients that our bodies need to heal and maintain healthy living. This is a lifestyle of Jerilyn's that she so lovingly shares with others. Jerilyn is a wealth of knowledge and a master in the kitchen. If you ever have the opportunity to enjoy some of the magic she creates in the kitchen-by all means do so!

I'm here to say I enjoyed my experience cooking and perfecting some of my favorite meals. Things like the perfect omlett and my very own vinergrate dressing. Mrs. Ward has given me tools to use for all my meals. And she made cooking fun I'm sure everyone in the class would agree we all learned a lot. And we got great cooking utensils to take home.

This guy is awesome! We hired Jake to do an in-home cooking class as part of a date night and it was amazing! He came very prepared, very punctual, and was a very good instructor. In no time at all, he taught us to make Mahi Mahi tacos, homemade tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo, and salsa verde. Without a doubt one of the best meals ever cooked in my home and now we know how to do it ! We will do definitely use his services again!

I have enjoyed lunch at the Curious Kitchen several times and the food was fabulous! In addition to a wonderful restaurant, the Curious Kitchen also offers cooking classes. They have been so much fun. It is a great learning experience. You leave with great everyday tips, delicious recipes, and the confidence to make the dishes you just enjoyed eating. I have participated in a date night and a team building Christmas party. How can you top great food, friends, learning, and laughter!!

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to Josh and his cooking skills!! First off let me say that I talked to and looked for a lot of private chefs for NYE and I'm so grateful that I chose Josh and vise versa! Not only is Josh one of the most incredible chefs I have met but he is also an incredible person! Me and 10 of my friends rented a cabin where I was told there would be ample plates and places to eat but that was not the case and he also worked in a bit of a dated kitchen but you would've never known it! He really worked with what he had and still made one of the most amazing meals I have eaten and I like to think that I'm quite cultured when it comes to that! He cooked us a four course meal consisting of crab cakes, butternut squash soup, filet for some and salmon for some and ending with creme brûlée. Every detail in the food did not go unnoticed and it was jam packed full of flavor from the sauce on the crab cakes to the asparagus with the perfectly cooked salmon! Oh and I can't forget to mention how fairly priced everything was! I would also like to say that Josh meshed so well with me and my friends that you would've never known that i had been the only one to meet him! I could go on and on about the food he cooked and his great personality! We haven't stopped talking about him and when will be the next time we can use his services!! I highly recommend Josh and already have to several people. Again please use Josh for any of your private chef needs and he will NOT disappoint!!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
