We loved Ed! Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but the service was outstanding. Ed is a real people person, and every visit we had felt comfortable. Ed and Amazing Caterers catered for my wedding on Oct. 7th 2016. All my guests loved the food and variety Amazing Caterers offer, and I even had the chefs checking on myself; always asking if I needed anything throughout the night. Ed also went above and beyond for us, and got us a quote and set up for flatware 3 days before the wedding when a crisis had hit! Thank you Ed, and thank you Amazing Caterers!!

We hired Marc for a private awards ceremony for the National Boys Scout of America. His BBQ is sensational, the smoked chicken was so tender. His BBQ should be in everyone's house and I really enjoyed the Caesar salad he prepared. As one chef (including my staff) to another we recognize true talent and all of here at WPG salute a true artist in the BBQ meats. We look forward to another fine menu prepared by him.

Luke cooked for us as we celebrated a milestone birthday dinner for 8 adults. He responded promptly with my online inquiry and we talked by phone later that day. Luke sent me several suggested menus and we tweaked a menu that was perfect for our dinner. Luke arrived promptly and made himself at home in the kitchen. Every bite of our 4 course meal was delicious and had great plate presentation. Luke loaded the dishwasher, washed the dishes, swept the floor and had leftovers packed up and put in the fridge while we enjoyed our dessert. Having a personal chef come to our house was a gift for the birthday girl and she was thrilled!

Buddy did a great job! The food was delicious and delivered on time with a smile. Buddy made me look good at our family reunion with his home cooking delivered to my sister's kitchen for the assembled aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins. Buddy was so easy to deal with - sight unseen - that I began to wonder if it was too good to be true. Would he deliver? The answer is yes. A real win-win that I recommend highly. Many thanks, Buddy & family.

This review is long long over due! Chef Cassy came to my home to cook for me, my family, and friends as a suprise for my birthday! I came home and she and her staff were already at work in my kitchen. The first thing I noted was that she and her staff were professionally dressed. I loved having a real life Chef in my house cooking for me!! I also noted that although she was cooking several dishes everything seemed to have it's schedule and the process ran smoothly. As it should since Chef Cassy is a professional chef. The food was delicious to say the least. The wonton stuffed with collards and ham are the BEST!! She also prepared salad and a grilled chicken Alfredo dish. I know chicken Alfredo seems like the standard run of the mill dish. Because to me, this dish seems standard. Enough so that, myself along with all of my guests couldn't stop raving about how hers really set a new bar for Grilled Chicken Alfredo! Even the salad which was again a seemingly simple dish was notably delicious and stood out amongst others I have eaten. As far as professionalism and interaction goes, I must say that Chef Cassy remained very professional. She and her staff stuck to what they came to do. But my friends and family being a bit more informal engaged Chef Cassy with conversation, questions, and raves. She blended very well into our relaxed environment as well. We all felt very comfortable with Chef Cassy and would certainly have her back again. I would recommend her to anyone looking for her services and suggest her to anyone who wasn't particularly looking. The whole experience was one I will not soon forget. Thank you Chef Cassy!!!

We had a pool party and rather than standing at the grill and taking orders, we decided to have the 4th of July party catered. So, of course we came to Thumbtack and searched for a caterer and we found JaredPierre. We got a quote and then reached out to Chef JaredPierre who walked us through the options. We came to an agreement and yesterday the food was delivered right on schedule. Sadly we didn’t get to meet the chef in person, but the food was amazing. Delicious, hot, and fresh. As usual we over-ordered and had lots of leftovers that all the partygoers were thrilled to take home as care packages (we kept most for ourselves). Next party - Chef JaredPierre is our caterer!

Highly recommended! They provided my wife and I with everything I needed for my event for 800 people. They also gave me a really great deal and were very flexible with my budget. On thumbtack I went through many catering companies and all of them were either overpriced or the food quality was below average. In addition I loved how they provided me a beverage bar with Hibiscus based drinks and organic lemonades. I especially loved their Lavender Cheesy Bread and Cherry Lime Hibiscus. Servers and Owners were prompt and the bartending service specialized in specialty cocktails that were smoked or traditional. Either way Spiced Lavender Catering is very professional and very fast to respond on any questions that I had. Also they are great for casual or high end venues that include weddings and corporate events. I cant thank them enough for saving me alot of stress at the last moment and they exceeded my expectation in everything from food to the exceptional service. Again I also cant thank them enough for being flexible with my timing and budget. Thanks Chef Nina.

We had a delicious 3 course meal cooked in our house by chef Connor for my husband’s 40th birthday. The risotto he cooked is probably one of the best i’ve had in my life. It was great watching him cook in front of us. He was also super friendly and we enjoyed his conversation very much, We’lll definitely use his services again in the future!

Roger and the Soiree Chef Group are simply outstanding. We cannot say enough good things about the care they took with respect to the arrangements, special dietary needs, execution on the day of the event and the kindness, courtesy and good humor with which they provided their services. Also, the quality of the food is exceptional. The savory item menu was prepared in detail consultation with us, and the presentation of the items was aesthetically very sophisticated. The pastry chef's creations are divine. We would recommend the Soiree Chef Group with great enthusiasm and look forward to working with them in the near future. KS and RS, Dallas

I used The Bite's catering services 2 weekends ago for my father in laws 70s birthday party. We were all so impressed with their food and quality of service. We chose their American Affairs Menu buffet style and it did not disappoint! We loved that Chef Evan through in our menu his mini spinach and cheese tarts. It was a wonderful little detail that made the party even more special. Him and his wife are a young vibrant team. Def will be using them again!

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS....Griffs Catering is AWESOME!!!! I used Griff's Catering for my Daughter-in-Law's Baby Shower on July 12th. They were the first to respond, presented a sample menu based on only a few details I had shared, and that menu was perfect for what I had in mind. I wanted all to be perfect and they calmed any "fist time customer fears" by providing references that I could call and were pro-active and responsive all thru the process. I worked with Darcy for the planning and she was a shining star in assisting with all the details, making suggestions, and efficiently handling all adds and changes that I made thru the process!! The end result was SPECTACULAR and truly exceeded all expectations!! They came early, which made this hostess feel very confident.... set up was seamless, the presentation was beautiful and the best part...the food was amazing!! All of our guest raved about the food and said hands down, it was the best Baby Shower they had ever attended! Thank you Chef Nick and Darcy for making Baby Enzo's Shower the absolute best!! P.S. Baby Enzo arrived early on July 23rd, Happy, Healthy and we look forward to using you for future family events!! I know my guest will be contacting you for their catering needs as well!! A thousand thank you's!!!

About

Hi everyone. My name is Channell. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu 5 years ago, and now I'm just spreading my recipes all over the Texas area. As I say, from my heart to your belly. I can do the very simple boiled egg to a poached egg. I love to make Italian food and soul food. By the way, it's crawfish time!

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 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.

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.
