What a great afternoon spent with Chef Jackie. Our group was from a 55+ neighborhood and the cooking class we chose was her Vietnamese menu. We hope to continue some more great classes with Chef Jackie.

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.

Pamela is a wonderful chef! She joined us to cook a special dinner at home for two families, and we ended up with a very high quality and extremely well executed meal with fresh summer ingredients, subtle and interesting flavors and special catering to each person's needs (yes, one person required well, well, well done tenderloin and Pamela made it happen without completely drying out the meat). In addition, to being a great chef, Pamela was a really nice person. She allowed one of our children to help with the cooking, and she was a great teacher. This was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend Pamela for both her cooking and baking skills.

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.

Kristin's cooking classes are fantastic. She uses fresh, delicious ingredients in all of her meals and the meals are easy enough to do on a weeknight. My favorite thing about the classes (since I am not a cook) is that the recipes are very easy to follow. She doesn't use a million ingredients but the outcome is restaurant quality meals. The cooking classes are interactive so you really learn how to cook the meals first hand. I would highly recommend any cooking class with Kristin.

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!!

Chef Mark cooked for me and my friends on three occasions, and he did a wonderful job each time. He created his own four-course menus, based on the preferences I gave him. For mains, his stuffed pork Florentine and his blackened fish are winners! For appetizers, he made wonderful creole shrimp canapes and endives with roquefort and pecans. His soups were particularly good: black bean soup with chorizo, and roasted red pepper soup with a touch of gouda cheese. And his specialty dessert is minted cream and fresh berry cornucopias. A great culinary experience, and he is pleasant and very knowledgeable about foods and recipes. I highly recommend him!

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

Salwa is a very knowledgeable, patient teacher with a wealth of creative ideas and a passion for sharing her expertise with others. I didn't have much cooking experience, and we cooked a pasta dish together; she led me through the steps and made me feel welcome when I asked some very "beginner" questions. Highly recommended!

I really appreciate Chef Curry's attention to detail and flexibility in designing a menu. He takes the time to create a delicious spread of foods that meet the [dietary] needs of the guests, w/o sacrificing the flavor and keeps it 100% healthy. I love that he is so creative with the types of dishes he creates and is super knowledgeable about the health benefits of the foods he cooks with (and is happy to share his health and meal prep tips with everyone!). His outgoing and comedic personality is infectious and really makes him a joy to work with. I highly recommend him!

Melissa prepared a spectacular birthday dinner for my Mom's 60th birthday, everything was perfect and I'm so thankful to have had Melissa do something special and unique for my mom. Melissa was friendly and is a very skilled chef. Before the date of the dinner, we had a long conversation about food likes/dislikes and the flow of the menu. Melissa was amenable to whatever I suggested, and her menu for the dinner was creative and delicious. Melissa prepared a starter cheese plate which had two cheeses, Italian soda bread, fig spread and granny smith apple. So tasty! Our first course was a shaved brussel sprout salad with warm mustard and apricot vinaigrette. Oh my gosh--THAT was delicious. Our second course consisted of braised lamb shank with parmesan polenta and lots of herbs. Again, very creative and delicious. Melissa is so talented and very nice to be around. She prepped the food, cooked everything, and left the kitchen spotless when she left. She was timely when arriving, and had the courses served promptly and spaced out just right. I would highly suggest Melissa to anyone looking for a personal chef for a special occasion or to help plan and prep meals on a weekly basis.

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.
