Chef Alex and the 801 Catering Team are amazing! We have been receiving personal family meals for a family of 7 for a couple months now and just love the variety and quality of food we are receiving. Alex is wonderful to work with very flexible. His prices are unbeatable too! We tried a couple other personal chefs before 801 Catering and found them to be incomparable. One of the kickers for us in choosing (and staying with) 801 Catering was the flexibility in grocery requirements. We had some pretty specific needs in quality of food and Chef Alex had no issues working with us. I definitely recommend 801 Catering for not only personal family meals but also business catering, I had 801 cater a business lunch for me over the course of three days and he was quick to respond and a moments notice and gave us excellent choices. I look forward to the many more meals we will be receiving from 801 Catering. Keep up the good work!

Self Impressions is awesome. I've been fortunate to have catered food by them several days a week. They have been so accommodating to my specific vegetarian needs and I'm never disappointed with the food. They can make anything tasty and feel home cooked even when I'm in the office all day.

Can't say enough good things. From the communication at the beginning, to the French toast at breakfast, to the dinner apps and meal and ending with dessert it was amazing. For a family trip or a friends trip I highly recommend a night in with Chef Jenna!

I was planning a fancy date night with my husband, and was looking for a chef to whip up something delicious and elegant. I originally thought Rex and Cathy were strictly dutch-oven chefs, but it turns out they're much more than that! On one day's notice, they planned and executed a meal of bacon-wrapped filet mignon with multiple side dishes and dessert, all prepared in my tiny apartment kitchen. They laid the table beautifully, served us, and cleaned everything up afterwards. It was the experience of a lifetime.

Justin is new young chef on the scene who was on time, well prepared, engaging and wore his professional chef's attire. This was a gift to my boyfriend to prepare and teach us how to cook a dinner with a whole fish. Justin brought all the ingredients, including two very fresh red snapper. He taught us and prepared lobster cakes, avocado salad, taught us how to filet fresh fish, and together we prepared excellent fish tacos. For dessert he brought home made chocolate mousse with fresh berries. Another couple joined us, which made the event even more special. My boyfriend was thrilled with this fun-filled and educational gift and evening. We are already planning and looking forward to our next event with Justin!

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.
