This was the 1st time I've ever had catering done for any of my events and I would like to say that I am not disappointed. Keiry was a professional from the moment that I started talking to her to the moment that she arrived to my house. The food was very delicious from the entrée to the side dishes and even the garlic bread. Everyone ate everything and before the night was over they were asking for more. All in all I am glad I chose Keiry and Mimi's catering to cater my event. Thank you Keiry and I will be using you 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.

Kia is simply amazing! The first cake she made for me was for my Tiffany & Co. inspired baby shower. The cake was a baby bump and I also had cupcakes. Everything was delicious and moist. Everyone from the shower enjoyed the desserts and had seconds! Kia also made my wedding cake. I had three flavors (strawberry, lemon and red velvet) with cream cheese filling. All I could say is OMG!!! It was ssssooo good. Kia is so sweet and very detail-oriented. She pays attention to what you want and gives great feedback. I walk away from our meetings with no worries because I know she'll do a beautiful job. I recommend Kia to anyone that needs a beautiful and delicious dessert for any occasion.

Whether you in the mood for a quiet dinner at home or a party of 40, Chef Demetrius is the right guy to call. Ranging from soul food to a lobster and mussels medley, Demetrius can make just about any food. Recently, a member of our family became a vegetarian and requested that he make only fish or some sort of seafood every day. I thought i would definitely get tired of eating seafood everyday but to my surprise, every day had a new twist. My son is somewhat pickier than the rest of the family so Demetrius occasionally made him something on the side. All in all, Demetrius' food is fantastic. He is professional but you will eventually see that he becomes a part of the family.

THE BEST Jamaican food I've ever tasted!! Has such great flavors just thinking about it makes me excited. If I could only have her for my own personal chef I would. You guys haven't taste the island of Jamaica until you taste Island Breeze. I give her 10 stars she's so nice and so warm hearted and really puts her foot in it. Great job can't wait until we have you cater for us again. Until next time and I mean really soon.

I've been using Straight Edge Construction for about 5 years and have been very pleased with the work. Gilbert is such a wonderful and trustworthy person who really knows how to fix electrical issues and make sure it's up to the current electrical code. I've also had him work on other areas of my home and rental house such as air conditioning and heating, and he has always been able to fix the problem for a very reasonable and fair price. Now, I always call Gilbert first to see if he is available to work for me, and I will wait until he is open. I truly love his work and trust him completely!

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.
