Dottie and Mark were great! From the moment they invited us to their home for a tasting, they were absolute professionals and kind! They showed up early to setup dinner to make sure they would not disturb our wedding ceremony, and when it came time to eat, they made sure to bring us food. The groom and I didn't need to get up. We had a chance to sit in peace. They helped serve and puck up, and with our cake cutting too! And, they did it all with a smile. Such delicious food and wonderful service! I definitely recommend them! :)

A review that is long overdue!.. A most sincere thank you to Monster Food Stuff for a truly wonderful evening that very quickly planted itself as an unforgettable memory in our family's minds. I hired MFS to cook and cater for our parents 50th Anniversary. I was born in Houston, however I have been living in Europe the last 16 years. I'm a choreographer/director/foodie. Being that I love food and work a lot with people/crowds, timing and spacial organization I felt I took a risk by choosing a "random" chef from a website (thumbtack) I had never heard of for our parents Anniversary. Everything was just perfect! The food was great. The personalized menu was a refined and unexpected detail. The presentation of the plates was beautiful. The selection of Cheese,wines,and bubbly was spot on and the overall professionalism and ease of our chef matched with his down to earth manner was refreshing. It had all the elegance and taste but without the pretentiousness that one might find when hiring a personal chef. I had already organized my own cookware,linens, and cutlery so I can not comment on MFS's items, however basing it off of the overall aesthetics and quality we experienced Im sure it is fine. Thank you again Monster Food Stuff!

    Patti Hartman catered a formal dinner, serving 15 people on my behalf earlier this year. As a former restaurant owner in Tokyo, Japan, I was impressed with Patti's professionalism and culinary skills. The menu was thoughtful and unique consisting of dishes from around the world. Patti has traveled extensively and has a library of authentic recipes at her disposal making her the perfect chef for more adventurous diners. For those who prefer more standard fare, Patti really livens things up, putting twists on classic recipes making them her own. Her Carrot Cake is to die for! She is exceptional in the kitchen and in the dining room. Most importantly, like any respectable chef, she does not compromise on quality using only the best produce and meats available.

      My son is a HUGE Transformers fan, and he wanted a Transformers birthday cake. Without going overboard, Sweet Treats and More provided a beautifully decorated Decepticon cake, along with an extra dozen cupcakes for the birthday party. I usually end up with lots of cake left over, but this time, there wasn't much to tempt me at home after the party. The cake and cupcakes were a tremendous hit!

      About

      People sharing a meal together is so intimate and personal. It is my goal to create the kind of food that inspires good conversation and serves as a catalyst to comfort. That's why I became a chef — to bring people together, not to chase Michelin stars or serve the masses. My food is simple, elegant and locally sourced — a perfect fit for your dinner party, proposal, or even if you just want a private lesson. My portfolio is available upon request.

      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.
