Eco Cleaning Services did an excellent job cleaning my 5000 square foot home.... All the 4 bathrooms, floors, kitchen, 5 bedrooms, office, dining rooms and living rooms were detailed, dusted and cleaned very well. I had guests stay over the weekend and even they commented on how clean my home was. Jeremiah, the owner, and his crew were very professional and attentive to my requests. I would highly recommend them as a very good cleaning service.

The entire experience was great. Donna and frank were great to work with. Donna worked with me to create the menu and appropriate portion size for the number of guests. Food was great, folks commented that the food was home made and delicious. I will recommend Frankie’s as a great catering service. Wife and I will try their restaurant next.

Jess was great! She came through the day before we moved in and gave us a quote. She was there from 2:30-8:30. Our house is smaller and therefore she worked very hard. She gave us a great feeling to come in to a move in ready home!! Thanks Jess.

Can't say enough about Rosa's talent, she takes, edits, and develops beautiful pictures that captures the moment/memory perfectly. I have several of her enlarged framed works hanging in my home and her photo albums bring rave reviews from all my friends. The picture selection, layout, and composition are perfect. You can trust Rosa completely with her skill at preserving the precious and endearing Times of your Life

    The Pastry Piper made a vegan cake for my son's 1st birthday! She matched a design of a cake I found and did a fabulous job! She even included a dozen cupcakes at no charge. The order was placed a few weeks in advance, and the cake was ready for pickup promptly at the agreed upon time! Highly recommend The Pastry Piper for your sweet needs!

    About

    I specialize in cost effective meals, that are not only healthy but easy on the pocket. I also love catering for small dinner parties. A lot of people don't want a huge reception and paying $25-$75 per person for a 300 attendee wedding reception. Small intimate meals are my specialty.

    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.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
