A vegetarian cooking class for 7, gluten/milk dairy/corn free, Egyptian/Moroccan/Turkish cuisine...Aubrey was able to do all of this for us. She was so flexible from start to finish in scheduling, menu planning, ingredients & tools. DELICIOUS food, fun personality, easy to follow instruction. She did all the shopping, supplemented tools and ingredients we didn't have, and went to town in our kitchen. Best menu options for vegetarians! Highly recommend Aubrey.

We had a cooking class for 4 girls in our kitchen. He was perfect for working with the 12 year old girls! They had a really fun time. He was engaging with them with about cooking and also had a great sense of humor. There was a lot of laughter and fun. The menu he chose was interesting and appropriate for their skills. All the ingredients and cookware were included. He contacted us quickly and returned all messages promptly and was very punctual. We had an excellent event.

Shauna was amazing to work with - she provided an incredible meal for our wedding and also took on the burden of supplying rentals. Everything went on without a hitch, and was a great experience! Late into our engagement, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. We saw the wedding as an opportunity to have a break from everything life has been throwing at us, and with Shauna's help it was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend reaching out to Entropy Cooks if you are looking for a caterer for your event. The food was incredible, the service was great, the price was more than reasonable, and the experience was everything we had hoped and more.

I've worked with Chef Jay for over a year. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about food but he is entertaining in the kitchen. His attention to detail and love for local food all come through in his dishes. He's the perfect personality for leading cooking classes and inspiring his audience.

I have enjoyed my cooking classes with Fumiko and continue to do so. I have tried different recipes (Japanese, Vietnamese, Italian cuisines) that I usually would've never thought of making with her and it has been a fun process. The prices of her classes are a good deal. Fumiko is friendly and down to earth. I never thought I would be into cooking but working with Fumiko, I enjoy it now. I would highly recommend her.

    I absolutely recommend Birgit. She is a class act, a dream cook and very sweet and funny. She does errands, cleans, shops, cooks, walks the dogs...it's so nice to come home from a long day's work and have it all done for me. She's a single working-woman's ideal helper.

    Mrs. Handson is an excellent teacher who truly makes the student feel comfortable and empowered in the kitchen. After only one session I felt more capable and fearless than I could have imagined. I can recommend her without hesitation.

    My husband and I have taken over 30 cooking classes with Tom at Sur la Table and each one has been a great learning opportunity. Tom is a most talented chef! He is creative, professional, and always gives the class "added value." Regardless of the menu or receipe he always goes that extra mile to create perfect flavor, technique, or time saving elements. When we have a special event or take a class, Tom will always be right up there on the top of the list we choose.

    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.
