Well well well, I'm not sure where to begin. Chef Serge is FABULOUS! His food is phenomenal and he is very creative with his menu. I had such a hard time narrowing down my selection. His personality is upbeat, lively and FUN! And all while cooking amazing food! I emphatically recommend Chef Serge to anyone looking for a CHEF, a cook, a caterer, anything you can use him for, do it! He also brought an assistant who was equally as pleasant and amazing.

I attended two cooking classes ( light Mexican and healthy grains) taught by Chris & Emily at the William Tally Rec Center. I highly recommend these classes. They were very informational and Chris &Emily are full of cooking knowledge which they share. We made several recipes and sampled our finished dishes. After the Mexican class, I promptly purchased a tortilla press. It is so easy to make your own corn tortillas. I would have never tried it on my own. Lori

I Was looking for something different for my wife and her sister during a visit. I saw A Private Affair on Living Social, offering a cooking class for 5. Since my wife loves to cook and her sister spent some time in culinary school I thought 'lets just give it a go." We ended up with 3 1/2 people making what turned out to be a fantastic meal - each of them taking responsibility for preparing a course under Chef Jackie's guidance and watchful eye. My grand niece made the salad (and Chef Jackie was great in keeping her on task and engaged); My wife did the potatoes au gratin; another friend did the pork chops and my sister-in-law made the chocolate moose. It was a lot of fun watching them but not as much as they seemed to be having. The menu options were great, the food was different and unique and everybody learned something new. Most importantly my stock went up for being the guy who gave his girl a cool and different gift. Pay attention gents! This one was worth it!

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

I have tried her chilli, steak, and stuffed bread she made back in high school her cooking is amazing for someone her age, especially considering she is younger than. She has made numerous drinks that I've enjoyed but my personal favorite would be the Sangria she made for our family reunion picnic this past summer. If you haven't tried anything of hers, it's an absolute must! You will not be disappointed!

As an educator, Chef Julian is outstanding, particularly with regards to excellence, creativity, discipline and adherence to historical and traditional cooking. Chef relates to young people exceptionally well and conveys, and expects an extremely high standard for dignity, respect and excellence both in and out of the kitchen, As a chef, Julian creates truly exceptional culinary creations that are well founded in traditional American cooking but at the same time are modern, creative and innovative.

Kelsey gave my daughter an in-home cooking lesson. She selected a wonderful menu and was very professional while still being flexible and fun with my daughter. The meal was also superb! My daughter had a wonderful time and is now inspired to be a young chef. Our experience was fantastic and I highly recommend Kelsey.

I thoroughly enjoyed my coooking class with Manjiri! She was fantastic at explaining and also demonstrating the cooking techniques. The recipes were easy to follow and I was able to recreate them at home easily. Best part was that the food was delicious!! My daughter and I love the flavors of Indian food and Manjiri's dishes were comparable to food cooked at a high quality restaurant. I highly recommend her cooking class, you will love her!!

I was being trained by Catherine years ago and I said something about " No pain, no gain " as she corrected my posture during the routine. She quickly said that no one should experience "pain" when working out. I knew then that I had FINALLY found a REAL trainer. Catherine's training and professional skills are unmatched. She simply loves doing what she does and it shows. She trains you according to your skill level and ability, and she is never distracted by today's tech gadgets ,( cellphones) which means you get 100% of her time, every time. I moved out of state for a short time and invited Catherine down for a visit and workout of course. she could not out run me on the beach, but she whipped my butt in the gym , but they were good workouts. Later on during her visit, she took me to the market and taught me how to properly shop for quality organic foods , and quickly made a knock out dish for me and my friend as we looked on and took notes. I moved back to the DMV area, reconnected with her and now I am receiving weekly healthy meals from her. Boy is that a relief. And knowing that she is a certified nutritionist only adds to her credibility. In short, if you are looking for true quality in a trainer as well as someone too cook healthy meals for you, Catherine is the hands down choice and that's why I give her 5 stars. Keep up the good work Catherine. Mark Stith Silver Spring, MD

I have seen Vera Oye' Yaa-Anna's culinary production with children and highly recommend it. A few children wear chef hats and bibs, and she teaches them to cook and prepare and serve healthful food. She is teaching them the virtues of slow food as opposed to fast food, which many of the children have grown up with, unfortunately. She uses real plates, cloth napkins, and they sit down to eat, and practice using good table manners. The children enjoy the experience of eating real natural food. Some of the young children have even lobbied their day care to change the menu from canned goods to fresh food and ingredients. They have also influenced their parents to change menus at home. She then encourages the children to talk about what they have just eaten, and to tell any stories about the food they have just eaten. Ms. Yaa -Anna also provides music and some dancing at the end of the program. It is a very good experience for the children, and I would give it 5 stars.

Culinary Chick provided dinner for my father’s 86th birthday. After his first bite he said and I quote “now this lady knows how to cook!”. We enjoyed every bit of our Italian dinner and fun was had by all! I will definitely use her for future occasions.

The other night the cook came to my house to let my wife and I to try samples of her work and we loved it. So we had her cook dinner tonight for us and it was beyond amazing! She is extremely talented and she really does care about her customers. It is very apparent she isn't just in it for the money. She was very professional and she arrived exactly on time. If you really want the best call Russian Dragon.

Liz is my fashion advisor. Everytime I wear what she had picked for me I receive compliments. I can say the same about the jewelry I have bought from her. Her strenght is the color combination and quality of the pieces she makes. The food she had cook for me is always delicious and innovative. Besides she takes special care on making a light version of my favorite dishes.

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.
