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!

I ordered a variety of dishes for a buffet style dinner for 50 people. This caterer was very responsible, quick to reply, and helpful with the menu. Items were delivered to my house on time and presentation was very nice. I will use again.

Please read this review!!!! I can not say enough of Jonathan and Nashville Events & Catering. My daughter got married on January 13, 2018 in Hendersonville, TN. That was the weekend of the big ice/snow storm. It was a rough go. Friday night Nashville Airport closed, and a few out of towners could not make it. Hairdresser was snowed in Saturday morning. I spoke with Jonathan Friday night and he assured me he will be there. Jonathan and his crew was there early and took over and made sure everything was perfect. We had a buffet of three entrées, three veggies, and three unique appetizers and all the food was delicious. What a class act! The servers were impeccable! Our guest continue to compliment us on the catering. Any request we had was responded like we were royalty. From preparing the champagne for the toast, serving the cake. The servers worked with smiles and grace. The immediate family stay long after the guest left and Jonathan stay over because we had to have a licensed bartender. He was there till the end. Priceless!!! Reliability and Quality is there speciality. I want to Thank Nashville Events for making our daughters wedding a day to remember.

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!

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 had such an amazing time learning how to make sushi with Talavera Kitchen & Catering. I'm not much of a cook so I wasn't sure I'd know how to do certain things, but they walked me through every step of the process and taught me so many new things that I was able to bring home to my own kitchen. The sushi was delicious and the night was filled with laughter and friendship. I would definitely recommend these services to anyone looking for good food or simply a fun experience!

      The entire experience with Joyful Provisions was wonderful. Our occasion was a"sisters' reunion". We set a menu that we wanted to learn how to make. They involved us in every step of the meal adding interesting cooking tips. Food was excellent; staff were very personable and the kitchen was clean when they finished. GREAT!

      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.
