I was so pleased with the quality and quantity of food for our brunch the morning after the wedding. Everything looked and tasted delicious! It was presented and served well. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the guests enjoyed them very much.

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.

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!

Celena provided weeknight meals for my family of three (two adults and a toddler). The meals were healthy, made with fresh ingredients, and incredibly delicious. My toddler literally double fisted the salmon dish to the point we thought she might choke, it was that good! Celena dropped off our dinners during the workday and left detailed, fail-proof instructions. The portions were generous and my husband and I both were able to take leftovers for lunch the next day. It was such a weight off my shoulders to not have to plan, grocery shop, and then cook dinners in the evening. Overall the experience I had with Celena and her services could not have been better and I will definitely use her again in the future, as well as recommend her to everyone I know!

I do very personal home cooking mainly from a Japanese cuisine idea. I am a woman who simply likes simple foods, and I want to share mine with others. I used to have an Italian fast-food restaurant, but I realized that my home cooking are healthier than most cuisines, starting from miso soup to fried vegetable dumpling, vegetable sushi, boiled vegetables, Japanese style ginger pork or chekin, tofu dishes and so on.


I am the man for the job. I have been cooking for 8 years and well-known around the Richmond area. I hope you give me the chance to come and show you what I have to cook for you.

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.
