Tim's cooking is A++++++ top notch!!! He has a knack of creating amazing original dishes, and is also great with duplicating recipes that are tried and true. He is extremely versatile - from fresh yummy homemade breads to homemade dips and sauces , to salads, meats, and desserts. it is all superb.! Tim catered a post wedding party in our backyard and the guests raved about the food! I would definitely use Tim's catering any place for any number of guests at any occasion. !

Sally Holmes who recently spent 6 hours cleaning my home did an outstanding job. Sally was prompt, professional, brought her own cleaning supplies and provided quality service. Based on her workmanship and pride in her service, I will use her again in near future.

Family friendly, love to teach, great work ethic,


What's For Dinner takes all the worry and additional work out of your busy day. I come in once a week and cook all your dinners for the whole week. All you have to do is take the meal from your freezer and follow the easy directions for a healthy and fresh made-from-scratch dinner.


We offer a line of all natural salsas to accommodate any meal, no sugar or salt added. We offer cooking recipes/cooking tips and advice as well as cooking demos. We offer our cookbook as well as a mobile food/hot dog cart that is custom and complete for events/parties, etc. -- all certified and professionally run.


I am providing custom catering of farm, table foods to small companies, individuals and private residence in the Charlottesville, Virginia area.


We provide full catering services for all occasions and private lessons. We are specializing in Caribbean and Latin American food services gourmet or home style cooking. No job is too small or too big. We do it all.


I like to take complex cooking techniques and break them down to simple, easy to follow steps so that everyone can learn to cook good food.

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.
