On my 8th wedding anniversary I hired Chef Roy to provide his services as a personal chef in my home. Chef Roy was punctual, pleasant, helpful, professional, personable, patient and and all around joy to be around. He prepared an awesome meal for my husband and I to no only enjoy but experince, taking special caution for someone with a picky palet, like myself. I am definitely looking forward to enjoying another meal in the near future prepared by the amazing chef Roy .

I had a themed event and Mason's Creative Catering (MCC) exceeded my expectations on food, creativity, and service. Kevin Mason is one of the most respectable chefs who takes into account the budget he is given to ensure that he, not only stays well within the budget, but also by creating such high quality, and tasty courses. It was my first experience with this company and I will definitely highly recommend to try MCC for your next event. ~Mia D. Taylor

Truly outstanding! Exceeded our high expectations. Mark is a credit to chefs everywhere. The special birthday dinner for my wife, family and friends was fantastic (the oo's and ah's from our guests at every course was telling). He tailored it perfectly to our request. The cost was also spot on to our stated budget. How he managed to do all of that was a marvel. A real pleasure listening to him explain as he cooked; encyclopedic knowledge of foods and cooking. His lovely assistant/wife, Louise, was just as special and kind in her service to all of us. I could not give a higher recommendation. These two are a rare find.

Our company (TRAVELERS) had a Christmas Party for 60 people. We contacted Chef Keif, one week before the dinner/party was to take place. He provided samples of his cooking, we were impressed. The day of the dinner Chef Kief provided the food for the menu we selected. It was OUTSTANDING!! The folks raved about the food and the party/dinner was a success. Thank Chef Kief, you are amazing and our company will be using you again!!!

Wow!!!!!! From the service request to the event at my home Chef Mark was amazing. Chef Mark was very on point from the paper work to the menu selection. He was with me every step of the way and provided me and my friends with a 5 Star experience within my budget. Those sesame ginger wings, spoke guda seafood pasta, and the cheese steak egg rolls were amazing. I will be using Chef Mark and his company again!!!

Having Silvana’s Kitchen cater our party was a good decision. The food was exactly as requested and was delivered on time. Everyone was overwhelmed by the beautiful fruit and vegetable trays. The sauces were appreciated extras. Silvana was very accommodating. I plan on using her catering the next time I need one. Thank you, Silvana for making everything easy.

I was concerned with how chef Joshua would handle a 13 extremely vocal women who are all concerned chefs in and outside of their families. Not only did he teach these ladies a few tricks, the food was well above our expectations!!! Joshua was very friendly and engaged us all in the preparation process. We are still talking about the grits. Thank you for making another year of Diva Day memorable and I'm looking forward to having you for other events in the future!

My husband and I had an opportunity to have Chef Randy cater an intimate wedding reception at our home for 40 people. We were so impress with the entire experience, from the initial meeting to the food quality and presentation. Chef Randy was extremely personable and we felt that he was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The guests complimented the dishes that were prepared. - Basil Mashed Potatoes - Sous vide chicken - Mint herb cous cous - Citric glazed salmon - Caprese stuffed tomatoes We will definitely work with Chef Randy again in the future.

Chef Malone took the time to bring a nice sampling of food items and discuss our catering needs for 120 employees. Additionally, Chef Malone was on time with the order and the service and food was excellent! My office will establish an ongoing relationship with his services, because he has a variety of ideas for future needs. Great food, delicious and fresh :)

Have Chef Calii cook was a gift for my birthday. She gave my wife some options and we ended up having kale salad, balsamic glazed salmon, asparagus with mushrooms and onions, three chees mashed potatoes, and crepes for dessert. She did the shopping for the food for dinner. Chef Calii arrived about 30-40 minutes late because of traffic. It only took a few minutes to have our salad ready. Chef Calii was great considering we had 2 dogs a newborn baby in the house. She started preparing everything and I wasn't 100% sure what was coming together. Eventually it came out looking good, and tasting great. She even cleaned the kitchen afterward. The one thing that could have improved the experience a bit more was for it to move a little faster. The mashed potatoes took quite a while to prepare, so there was about an hour and a half between our salad and the main course. Because of this, we weren't finished eating until after 9:10 pm. Overall, the meal was fantastic, and was even better that I didn't have to shop, cook, or clean.

Chef Labome did a great job for our corporate event. The only feedback that I received that was not positive was that the food was not warm. This may have been due to a timing issue in which a traffic jam caused a slight delay in arrival time. Overall highly recommended for quality and price.

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.
