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.

Reviews for Lakewood cooking instructors
Emily W.
First of all, Ken is incredibly kind and responsive. He is open to questions and is extremely flexible with putting together a menu. We had surprised my mom with a cooking class for her birthday and Ken put together a Thai menu (one of our favorites!) that fit our dietary wants and needs. He was very accommodating for allergies and was able to make helpful substitution suggestions along the way. It is obvious that Ken is a pro, but he never makes you feel inferior. He is very supportive and wants to help you learn. We definitely plan to hire Ken back in the future. He has great stories and will keep you entertained and engaged the whole time you’re with him. I can’t emphasize enough how pleased we were with his visit and his food. Such a pleasure to have worked with him and tasted such exquisite cuisine!
