SEWING & DESIGN: I have many years of sewing experience. I am a 4th-generation tailor. I worked in theater as a costume designer, I ran a costume shop for 6 years. I love to turn people on to the frugal craft of sewing to save money and create projects to suit your personal desires. I love the ability to create something made specifically for me. COOKING: I'm also a chef. Learning to cook is a great way to save money and eat well at the same time. You can have control over your diet and wallet at the same time. In high school, I was cooking every day after school in a Chinese restaurant until I graduated. My experience is in shopping, meal p

Kristen G. says, "I HIGHLY recommend Chef Greg for any and all things cooking related, he is the absolute best. He went ABOVE & BEYOND to ensure we all had a fun night making delicious homemade pasta at our corporate retreat. We had many kitchen/ingredient restrictions going into the cooking class, with many changes along the way, and he went with the flow and made everything work perfectly. During the class, he was being pulled in 100 different directions, with multiple people asking questions at the same time, and he never got flustered or frustrated. He kept the tone of the class light and fun, while not only teaching 17 "non-cookers", but also preparing additional food items that we requested. After the class was completed, he took the time to come out to the table to ensure everyone was enjoying their meal and answer everyone's questions, most that had nothing to do with the class he just taught. He is truly great at what he does! Not only the amazing tasting food, not only his high skill level in the kitchen, but the fun energetic personality that he brings with him. I will definitely be using him again at our next retreat!" Read more

Good food begins with great cooking practices and hygiene. I teache the practices because it consistently keeps the chances of food contamination to minimum to none. I believe when you prepare food food others they should feel confidence in eating what you prepare, because it looks good first and then taste greate.

Your cooking questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do cooking classes cost near me?

Cooking classes cost $60 to $140 per person for a one-time in-person class or $200 to $500 for a class including three to five sessions where you'll learn to create different meals from a specific region or type of cuisine. Online cooking classes cost $20 to $100.

The cost of cooking classes depends on:

  • Class length
  • Group class vs. private lesson
  • Beginner or advanced skill level
  • Type of cuisine
  • Recipe difficulty
  • Chef's or instructor's reputation
  • Location
  • Hands-on vs. demonstration-only
  • Whether the class focuses on teaching a specific culinary technique or recipe or is a collaborative class where each student prepares one part of the overall menu

How long are cooking classes?

In-person cooking classes typically last 2 to 3 hours, depending on the class type and size, whether it's hands-on or demonstration-only, and the cuisine type. Most online cooking classes are 1 to 2 hours long.

What types of cooking classes are there?

Cooking classes range from introductory lessons that teach you basic culinary techniques to advanced classes that teach you how to prepare a five-course meal from scratch. Date night classes are a popular way to bond with your partner while learning how to prepare delicious meals.

Common cooking class types and topics include:

  • French cuisine
  • Italian cuisine
  • Asian cuisine
  • Vegetarian cuisine
  • Baking
  • Breadmaking
  • Handmade pasta
  • Sushi
  • Date night cooking class
  • Kids cooking class
  • Family cooking class
  • Knife skills

Should I tip the cooking class instructor?

Tipping the instructor at a group cooking class is not expected. If you enjoy the class, post a positive review online and consider sharing photos and the school's information on social media.

For private classes from a chef, tip 15% to 25% for exemplary service.

How can I find the best cooking classes near me?

A cooking class can help you master the basics, learn advanced culinary techniques, explore new ingredients and cuisines, and boost your confidence in the kitchen. Follow these tips to help you find the best class for you:

  • Decide whether you want to take a group class, date night class, or private lesson.
  • Choose a class focusing on the type of cuisine you want to create.
  • Read reviews from past students on Lessons and Google.
  • Confirm whether the class is hands-on or demonstration-only.
  • Ask about class size, schedule, and supplies needed.
  • Let the instructor know ahead of time if you have a food allergy.

What questions should I ask before signing up for cooking classes?

Ask these questions to help you choose the cooking class that best suits your needs:

  • What cooking techniques or recipes will I learn in the class?
  • What is the typical class size?
  • Will I make my own items or is it a collaborative class where each student makes part of the meal?
  • Do I need to bring anything special with me?
  • Are the classes hands-on or demonstration-only?
  • Will we get to eat the food we prepare at the end of class?
  • Can I take leftover food home with me?
  • Do you offer private classes?
  • Can I buy a class as a gift for someone else?
  • Are there any age restrictions?
  • What if I have food allergies?

I hired Greg to do a personal in-home cooking class session for my two adult daughters: they made pho and spring rolls. Greg was very communicative via email before the class, and a pleasure to work with on class day. He is personable and knowledgeable, and we all learned new things!
